3820 or 3930K - Page 2  

post #11 of 143
are you trying to be a troll.
you're trying to justify getting a SB-e, not even the best one, for just gaming and you're telling him to be realistic?

As far as benchmarks goes for SB-e so far theres no discernible difference in gaming before. Might as well get an i5-2500k then wait for ivy bridge.

and you say why pay more for a 5 series card when sli 460s performs just as good for cheaper.

same thing with SB-e and i5-2500k for gaming.

nothing to be seen here guys.

concerned about the locked vs unlocked factor. not really going for record setting stuff. but i would like to be able to hit 5ghz for bragging rights. cooler will be a h100 with a push pull setup (if it fits) in a haf 922.


big price gap between these and dont wanna spend anymore money then i have to.

thanks for any help.
What video card (s) are you looking to get?

lol its not silly when the "new" stuff is 5 days out.

Why buy 460s when the 5X series is newer. Pairing X79 with dual 460s is like buying a Ferrari then putting Wal-Mart brand tires on it.

I smell a troll.

no one is trolling here guys just asking a simple question.

x79 brings true pci x16 for both sli cards and quad channel memory. so that in itself is a selling point for me over the 2xxx series.

post #17 of 143
if you're paying 300 bucks for a 560ti you're doing it wrong.

It's not the 'old stuff'. SB-E isn't a new architecture by any means.

The reason people are suggesting the 2500K over the 3820 is because it's a little over half the price and has an unlocked multiplier which will probably allow it to beat the 3820.

The other advantage of going with 1155 is that you'll get the option to upgrade to Ivy Bridge later on, which again, will probably beat SB-E in the same way the 2600K competes with the 990X for a third of the price.

You're better off just getting a 2500K and a couple of 6970s/GTX 570s.

And??

Running in 8x 8x only brings a 2-5% performance hit. Quad channel memory? Yeah, it's great, but when it comes to gaming it's not going to bring the biggest performance gain, certainly nothing worth paying $300-400 extra over a 2500K that's for sure.

X79 is for enthusiasts and that means it comes with a big price tag, don't dismiss 1155 over a few buzz words.
