hey fox

first i m new

at this moment i use a phenom II x4 @ 3.70 ghz and sure it's not enough

so i just wont to know if i bay a phenom x6 1090t and oc to 4.2ghz gonna be enough to use my 4 gpu in gaming/3d

ore just bay a phenom 960t unlocked to 6 core , and wait to have more money and bay a new platform lga 1155 + 2600 k oc 5 ghz ?


what do you think ???

Well whats your budget?

Welcome to OCN.

First, define "enough". Enough for what? Your quad is quite enough for many things.
There is a bottleneck on your GPUs, but there will be one with any CPU available, even SB @5Ghz will break a sweat trying to keep up with 2x590.

If I were you, I'd get the x6 for now, and when the time comes, move to the best performing Intel solution, be it 2600k or whatever.

First off, and I don't mean to be rude, but if you want legitimate responses to your questions you will have to clean up your spelling, you grammar, and use the shift key.

The question is really how important is it that your new setup performs optimally right now? If you can wait, I'd actually save up for SB-E. Also know that not all SB chips will do 5GHz with a reasonable voltage.

"Enough for what? "

3ds max and after effect

" even SB @5Ghz will break a sweat trying to keep up with 2x590. "

yeah my same point of view

emmm i guess , baying a 960t ore a 1090t and wait the next lga 2011.... it's the best choice ! (

and my budget is limited because of the 2 gtx 590 + 2 waterblock ( 1500$ )

other question ! what do you think about the 960t if i unlock to x6 and oc to 4ghz compared to the 1090t ??

I find it near impossible to unlock and reach 4Ghz on that.

Well if you have a good overclocking motherboard than try the 1055t or the 1035t.
I just purchased the 1035t for 120$ with a coupon from newegg.
Hopefully I can get it to 4ghz.....

You can't utilize SLI with that motherboard/chipset.

Bit of a catch 22 to be honest, for the uses of 3DStudio etc multi core scenarios would be beneficial and memory bandwidth is paramount. I would really advise in the SB-E platform using the upcoming 6core 3930K CPU. You have more than enough GPU power so that's all good.

Gaming wise it's where problems may arise when harnessing the GPU power your using, your going to need a hefty overclock to reduce the bottleneck but you can get round this with much higher display resolutions. But you are using 22" screens, so that's not helping things either. You really need more than 1080p to do those cards justice otherwise your won't see much of a benefit with a 2nd 590 @ 1080p. Quad SLI performance will be unoticed over a single 590 at that resolution.

"You can't utilize SLI with that motherboard/chipset."

using sli ore not , in 3ds max with vray rt ore octan they just check all the gpu supported and us it (Opencl )
and i can use simply a hack sli

"I find it near impossible to unlock and reach 4Ghz on that."

i just google it and found many people run it stable 4 ghz 6core !

" Bit of a catch 22 to be honest, for the uses of 3DStudio etc multi core scenarios would be beneficial and memory bandwidth is paramount. I would really advise in the SB-E platform using the upcoming 6core 3930K CPU. You have more than enough GPU power so that's all good. "

yep the best choice , because the 3d stuff need a good cpu (sometimes with the phenom x4 the rendering time is more than 6 days ) ! !!


(Gaming wise it's where problems may arise when harnessing the GPU power your using, your going to need a hefty overclock to reduce the bottleneck but you can get round this with much higher display resolutions.

Quad SLI performance will be unoticed over a single 590 at that resolution. ) "

yeah in future i ll add a third 22p , and have a 5760/1080 then it's should be fine

so everything's is clear now , even a core i7 oc 5ghz ore a x6 oc 4.20ghz gonna bottleneck the sli gtx 590 in 1080p

and the best choice is to wait the ivy bridge proc and add a third monitor , then i should be fine in gaming and 3ds rendering

thx guys so helpful

but now i steel don't now .. bay a 1090t ore a 960t ??
