It maybe very affordable for you to get the 2500k, keep in mind you don't have to get the very most expensive mobo there is. There are plenty of good 1155 mother boards in a low price range that will still give you great performance. And will compare in price to an AMD setup these days. You just got to shop around. Set yourself a spending goal. You can spend less on a case, you don't need extreme amount of memory (some people get 16gb or more and they aren't even encoding or anything). etc. What is your spending goal?

Here is a nice comparison between the E8400 and the 1090T (with no Overclocks)
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/146?vs=56

Stock 1090T will give you a lot more encoding power.

£160, no RAM necessary in the UK (was given an 8gb XMS3 1333mhz kit from a friend, brand new), I'm already set to buy a M4A89GTD PRO and 1090T with shipping to the UK for that price which seems very reasonable considering it's supposed to be one of the best AM3 motherboards with AM3+ stable support coming soon and the 1090T in England is £160 by itself. This is from the overclock.net marketplace.

I'm thinking about getting a 1090T as well for my computer today. I stream and game at the same time as well.. this topic may help me.

Stock 1090T will give you a lot more encoding power.
In fairness, any multi-core CPU will give much more encoding power than what the OP has now.

Yes rem2905 I plan to do this a lot too, that's why I thought the 6-cores would help with multitasking otherwise I may aswell get a X4 980 for the same price for just gaming.
Plus I'm fairly certain my E8200 is bottlenecking my 6870 and when I get a 2nd 6870 near Christmas my 6870's will be laughing at it. I've noticed in quite a few newer games (don't even mention GTA4, runs like a snail in the desert) my CPU is constantly at 100% and my GPU sits at around 40-50% usage, I assume this is bottlenecking.
post #17 of 27
That is what I was thinking, but then I heard that you won't get as much performance in gaming than you would with the 980 BE. So, it's a tossup, and I don't know who's talking out their ass and who's being serious. No offense. It's 170 bucks. Not cheap for me.

If you do like encoding,rendering, I'm not sure about live streaming but I guess anything video, x6 would be your choice. Unless you can find a deal with like the x6 and a mobo, Like I think you said you did on the OCN Marketplace. You always want to check there first if you are not doing a complete system overhaul. There's good prices for parts there and combos.

In a previous post I mentioned that the OP should look at benchmarks to see if the performance matches his expectations vs the amount of money he wants to spend, I merely provided a benchmark.

The benchmark shows great encoding power and similar but better single core performance before overclocking. If you compared the 1090T to a 2500k you would also see better numbers favoring the 2500k, but that is not what the OP is wanting.

i like my 1090t , have OC to over 4Ghz , and it puts in the work even with my 2 HD 6950 2GB GPUs running at 920Mhz core and 1400Mhz mem, it doesnt bottleneck. good AMD chip
