3820 or 3930K - Page 3  

post #21 of 143
Ivy Bridge will support PCIe 3.0. PCIe 3.0 at x8 has the same bandwidth as PCIe 2.0 x16. Plus with 460s you won't come close to saturating a PCIe 2.0 x8 link. Even 580s have trouble saturating it at x8. Plus with 3.0 you will have use of 3.0 cards in the future. Additionally, IB will have a higher IPC than SB-E, meaning that a quad IB will more than likely outperform your SB-E CPU.

A 2500k now then IB later will give you much higher performance per dollar than X79 and will satisfy all your gaming needs. If the price isn't an issue then you have no reason to use 460s as money clearly isn't a thing.

Your posts just seem very contradictory.

Just get the EVGA SR-3 and the two most expensive hexacore cpus, then drop in four GT 210 for "quad-sli" power

It doesn't have me complaining either, but it brings into question why you would want an X79 setup if you're looking for the best value performance.

your cute. cute reply.

pretty sure my question was 3820 vs 3930k. not 1155 vs 1366 or ivy bridge. or what your opinions' are of SB-E.

a 3930k or 3820 with 460's in sli will be a rock solid performer. WHY would i spend top dollar on fermi 3 months before Kepler? your doing it wrong.

thank you.

People here are just trying to recommend what's best for you, but if you are so obsessed about getting a SB-E, then go for it.

3820: Best option but no overclocking
3930k: Quite more expensive, but you will be able to overclock
