3820 or 3930K - Page 9  

post #81 of 143
If a processor that performs top of the line, yet gives me more features than a 2600K, I'm buying it. I wouldn't pass that up, especially like the OP who doesn't even have a computer why would he not spend the extra money

Atleast I didn't contradict myself when I bought it. And before you say it, I'm no fanboy either. Just getting the best for my money.

How cute.. if you want to imply that I'm in the same boat as OP, then you're only making me laugh.

He bought weak GPU's in the first place and wants to compensate getting an overkill CPU for his system which will essentially not make any difference compared to a mid-range 2500k in terms of gaming.

In my case, I've been having the Thuban pretty much since release and just recently got myself a GTX 590 since I will be going SB-E in 2 months anyway.

It would be pointless to wait with the 590 purchase till I get SB-E seeing how it's a niche product thats quickly running out of stock and wont drop in price anyway; think rationally.

Oh and CPU limit can be overcome by turning as much GPU intensive settings on as possible, such as 32x AA, supersampling and what not, essentially running into GPU limit at some point, making no difference to a 2600k for example.

Can this be done if you have weak GPU's in the first place? Nope.

TL;DR: Try again.

EDIT: If he uses the 460's to bridge the gap till Kepler, then thats fine, but seeing how they're just around the corner (2012 Q1 or Q2) it still seems kinda like a waste to me, but thats me.

Did I miss the part where the troll puts a SR2 with dual 2600k's and quad-SLI GTX 590's in his sig yet?

Okay but Kepler? Have you missed that entirely? He's purposefully not spending money on GPU's because the new ones are coming out and they're faster. Same with Sandy Bridge E, and you can't even knock getting it if you are champ. That just doesn't make any sense

so why arnt you getting a 2500k? its cheaper and its the same performance right?

feeling stupid yet?

The thread-per-thread performance of the 2700k/2600k is, for all purposes, identical to X79. Additionally, the 1155 motherboard can then be used with Ivy Bridge in early 2012 (CPU only upgrade) which will double the PCI-Express bandwidth enabling larger data transfer from those very Kepler graphics cards.

X79 will not support PCI-Express 3.0 until November 2012 at the very earliest. IB-E is planned to have the same architecture as Ivy Bridge which means that the thread-per-thread performance will again be nearly identical to 1155. By the time games can even use the extra 2 cores (the only actual advantage to X79 aside from benching/server related things) the chipset will be obsolete.

Also, Kepler has been delayed until mid 2012 and it's unclear whether it wil be a new architecture or a Fermi die shrink. All of the currently designed Kepler cards are Fermi architecture on a 28nm platform.
I vote die shrink with 10-30% improvement. Not going to be much improvement as far as real world performance goes.
