The way I see it, it's only a waste of money if you have to struggle to pay for it.
People buy 500hp+ Ferrari's to drive on speed limited streets everyday, how are they any different...?
Don't any of you tell me you wouldn't if you could...

That's the thing, I could easily afford an SR3, but I would be a waste of money, I wouldn't get anything out of it that I couldn't get out of a single SB-E 6-core. People drive Ferraris in-town for the rush of the acceleration and to pick up gold diggers with, it has its use for those that are superficial.

I know plenty of people on OCN with SR2s and I've never told them they were wasting it, because they aren't, they actually have uses for that kind of power, but when someone says they want and SR3 for gaming, that's just dumb.

Lol i own a sr-2 and ive built several other systems ive tried for gaming my sr-2 stomps anything for gaming anyone says that a sr-2 or even the new sr-3 is useless for gaming hasn't actually owned a sr-2 and knows what its capable of out of the 4 or 5 different systems ive built the past few months for gaming and i mean not cheap stuff my sr-2 is still my top choice.

Sorry dude, those two slow Xeon's in an SR-2 you have there aren't that good for gaming . A system like mine with a 990X at 5+ Ghz and quad-GTX 580s @ 1000+ Mhz would be quite a bit faster. Not to toot my own horn... wink.gif

Lol all id haft to do is oc my 2 slow xeons to 4.5ghz wich i have easily and that alone would give me a better performance then your 990x and quad gtx 580s sry to tell u but 24 threads of processing power is much better then 12 from a 990x if you need proof to see on futuremark what the top systems are for gaming youll see alot of evga sr-2 in those lists. But to the topic at hand i probably wont be getting a sr-3 but nice to see evga continuing there dual xeon oc boards.

Honestly, and not to come off as mean here, but benchmarks or it didn't happen. Benchmarks using real games, because you can't play 3DMark or Vantage.

You're running a stock 3GHz dual 6 core machine on previous gen architecture for applications that use at most 4 cores...a 5GHz 2600k rig operates 4 threads at roughly 200% of your SR2's speed. I'll let people do the math here themselves; suffice to say though, a 5GHz 2600K machine will completely school an SR2 (especially at stock speeds). Quad SLI is a different story since the 1155 rigs can't do it, but again, X79 will do a better job than SR2 or SR3 for that matter.

SR2/3 are either for bragging rights or for hardcore rendering, encoding, etc. A 990X with Quad SLI @ 5GHz > Dual Xeons @ 4.5GHz. It was true for X58 and will be true for X79.

I'll absolutely be plunking down a few thousand for an SR3 and a couple Xeon E5-2687W, but I'm in a situation where I'll load all 32 threads @ 100% for days on end and really require that power to get things done. Right now I'm using 4 3930K rigs clocked to 4.8GHz and still not even close to meeting the computing power I need...that's the type of use the SR3 is REALLY for, though I know the majority of the users won't have needs anywhere close to that.

Thats cool no offense taken thats your opinion and i respect that me myself im happy with my sr-2 i can run every game with no problems and i can also edit and do other things so im happy with my sr-2 thats the route i choose to take and im fine with it.

i own an SR-2 AND professionall build gaming computers for beast computers in the UK. i love my SR-2 but for gaming a 990x is good enough. especially when OC'd like a beast. the sr-2 is wasted as most games use dual/quad core and only a very few hexcore.

A 2500K is "good enough," a 990X for games is massive overkill. Buying a 990X for games is no different than buying a Xeon for games...completely unnecessary.

The 990X (and by extension SB-E) has its appropriate segment, but a gaming platform it is not, despite it being marketed as such.
