Advice on upgrade now that Bulldozer is a fail... - Page 3

post #21 of 26
I know I'm gonna get flamed here for this but I don't care.

I don't see BD as a fail. It depends on what you do on your pc.

For me, BD is the way to go cause I run multi threaded apps. I don't game on my pc and I'm not worried about MS Office not being as quick as on an I7

It has only been out for what?? A week at the most??

Give it a little time and then we'll see.....
Everybody flamed the first gen Phenoms...... I have one (9550 be) still going strong. Maybe its not as fast as my first gen I7 I have as a rendernode but it holds its own.
All I'm saying is to give BD a chance to mature before declaring it a monumtal fail like what is already happening. It's all new architrcture, allnew design, give it some time.

So, having said that, let the roast begin.
hahahahahaha

You mean like how all the software has jumped onto hyperthreading so the 2600k can shine too?

Good luck with getting everyone on board anytime soon.

Unless you plan on getting multiple GPU's, I don't really see a 8120 as a fail at all. Since you don't plan on gaming, I would say go for it if it's cheaper for you.

It should be fun to overclock, and play around with.

I just plan on using 1 gpu. I'm not sure witch would be more future proof with the best upgrade path. I can build the fx-8120 or the 2500k for the same money. Cpu,mobo,and 8 gig of ram for $374.97

Yeah, that's a tough call, of the 2 the 2500k would cost you less to run electricity wise. If you don't care about that, the multithreaded performance should be greater on the fx-8120 in many situations.

I would probably go with the i5, but that just because of an OS I like to run. For you a fx may be good.

I don't think I would consider either one more future proof than the other. People may say oh you can add ivy bridge to p67, while I haven't seen anything official from Intel. Even if you can, it probably won't support all the features of their new chipset, and you'd want a new mobo.
