Another Swithcing to Intel

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Sorry for starting another one of these threads but I wasn't able to get a response in a previous thread and am looking to upgrade as soon as possible.

I too have been thinking of upgrading my rig to Intel and hand down some parts for my GF's computer.

I know you Intel boys are eating this up.

Sig rig is going to be same instead of

Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 PRO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131771
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115070
GPU: Just because...EVGA GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130587
RAM: 2 sets of G.SKILL Ripjaws 1600 (2 x 4GB) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231445

or G.SKILL Ripjaws X 2133 (2 x 4GB) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231476

I know there's hardly any difference between 1600MHz CL9 and 1600MHz CL8 but it only costs $14 more and I prefer the blue heat spreader.

Looks like the 1600 can OC to 2133.

For $30 more I can get the 16g RAM with faster timings. that possible can OC to 2133. I'm sure I wouldn't be able to do that if I use all 4 sticks.

So which is the better value?

Also I have a multi display setup. Is it worth it for the extra $100 to get the MSI N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127589

Any other suggestions/comments are welcome with whole setup.

Thanks,
Gaming

The multi display setup justifies the GTX 580 Lightning IF you are doing Surround gaming, not 2 screen usage. I doubt you are able to OC those 16 Gb of RAM to 2133 and get a 4.5Ghz OC on the i5(for gaming)/i7(for HT stuff) with a H70 tho unless you get a really golden chip, so I would say just get cheaper RAM (Ripjaws/Vengeance) plus 2133 vs 1333 vs 1600 are really negligible unless you are doin tons of rendering.

It all comes down to what is the intended use of this computer. If is a gaming computer you can buy the 2500k + 1600Mhz mem + GTX 580 1.5gb mem for resolutions of 1200p and under. Anything higher than that get the one with 3gb of ram. If your gonna do a lot of crunching/folding/video editing/photoshop get the 2600k and the fastest ram you can get.

looks good. As others stated if your just gaming save the $100 and go with the 2500, if your a video editor and such go with 2600.

What I really do on my computer:

Gaming: Only games that would be graphic intensive is FFXIV and Skyrim when it comes out. I really want to assure I can max out settings to the fullest and blow these away without a hiccup.

Rendering: I do some Photoshop, Maya, and 3ds Max. Not ALOT, more of a hobby since I am not in the gaming industry... yet.

Since my computer is really close to my TV, I would like the option to connect it to my Samsung 40' LCD 1080p without losing quality.

RAM is probably what I the most unfamiliar with... When to choose lower timings, faster clocks or more MB..

ie, should I get stock 16g @1600 8-8-8-24 or 8g @ 2133 9-11-10-28 for roughly same cost.

Just a heads up Bunsen I ended up getting this RAM:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231444

After reading a sticky in the Intel RAM section I decided it was the way to go for me. You should check out the sticky before you order anything.

You should be set with a 2600k + GTX 580(1.5Gb ram). As far as memory goes Im not familiar with the software your using now. Just look at your usage now and go from there. You will be very happy with that system.

This. I really don't think you'll use 16GB of RAM.
