I5 2500k vs i7 2600k vs q6600 - Page 2

post #11 of 17
My old rig had a qx6850 @ 3.66GhZ, my new rig has a 2600k @ 4.8GhZ.

There is a HUGE difference. If you want to upgrade I would say now is a great time and SB is really awesome for the price.

SB will win hands down. Even if you ran SB at 2.4GHz vs Q6600 at 2.4GHz, I can tell you right now SB will be about 50+ percent faster clock for clock.

ASUS P8P67 boards seem to be the popular choice.

et alibi has stated before, the difference is going to be night and day. I will even go as far as to say it is like going from Pentium 4 478 to a E8400

I went from a phenom x4 @ 3.8Ghz to this. And its great. The GPU is being put to full use and games are Much smoother! look for good deals and you will not regret it.

And overclocking this thing is incredibly easy. i have an $80 motherboard and i'm running it at 4.4Ghz stable with 60c load on a $30 cooler!

If you can wait until September hopefully the prices will drop and you can get an amazing deal.
