Compared to spending 2x as much on the CPU/mobo for a 0% gain?
No doubt the X79 platform will be a beast. But you don't buy a Ferrari to get to work.
your right i buy a mustang.

End of story thread closed, thank you
With a pair of 460s. Right...

I guess you completely missed this post.

Enjoy the 3930k if you get it, I love my unlocked hexacore on my X58.

This. Plus the 3820 (one of the OPs options) is a quad from what I understand. SB-E WILL NOT HAVE PCIE GEN 3. So please stop saying it will. X79 has support for it, but Intel couldn't get some bugs ironed out before release of SB-E.

So yes, X79 will have PCIe gen 3, but not until end of year 2012.

X79 will game just as well as Z68/Z78, which is the problem. Also, OP wants high overclocks. High overclocks are harder to come by with more cores, and the X79 previews that have been shown only offer comparable to worse overclocks than a 2700k (on 6 core procs). For games, there is absolutely no reason to get 6 cores.

The single best gaming combo you can possibly build for the next 4-5 months is a 2500k/2700k mated to a high-end Z68 with tri-sli 3gb 580's running NV surround providing you want Intel/Nvidia. Without surround, you do see more gains than the 580s by going for quad-sli 590s. I can't remember whether or not quad sli 580s are possible on 1155.

thanks im looking forward to it. i will hold on to the 460's for a little while as they are still solid performers. i will be considering a 600 series upgrade. ill have to see how thy spec out.

Scumbag OP:

Wants to spend $300 more for a CPU that gives a 0% increase in FPS because the current generation is "old".

Refuses to spend $200 more on a graphics card upgrade that gives 20% increase in FPS because he bought a pair of 2 year old graphic cards because spending more is not worth the increased performance.

Lol even though MSI has PCIE 3 boards ready for release day. Btw I can see how upgrading to x58 wouldn't be worth it now but still you're knocking him for getting the next gen enthusiast processor? It'll be faster in gaming than a 2600k will, marginally sure but still overall the processor is still going to perform better all around. That's what he wants get over. And he doesn't need a $3000+ price tag for just monitors and gpus when Kepler is around the corner. He is waiting for Kepler so why spend more now when he can spend more later by saving with 460's? You don't make much sense here

Whats the point?
A 6-core sandy would be a total waste for gaming, you wont see a difference compared to the 3820 (or 2500/2600k for that matter).

And you can easily overclock the 3820 with base clock still. And multiplier will actually be adjustable by up to 6 steps or something.

Should easily be possible to hit 4,5 - 5 GHz with it.
