I got $2,000 to spend on a new CPU and mobo, recommendations? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Why do you all keep recommending Ivy Bridge? SB-E is coming out this month, and it's going to be for the elite. You're looking at around $1400-$1500 for the top CPU and a good MB.

Buying :

ASRock X79 Extreme 4 @ 249.99
Core I7 3930K @ 599.99
HD 6990 @ 699.99

- 1549.97

Selling :

Core I7 920 @ 125.00 if it's a D0, 100 if its a C0
UD5 @ 140.00
HD 5870 @ 150.00

- 415.00

Total : 1134.97 - 2000.00 = 865.03 for other upgrades

This plus two quad core Xeon's.



Forget the 2600k. It's a chump's CPU.
