i7 2600k worth it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! looking to do a build for a friend this month and we were wondering if the i7 2600k is worth the extra 100 bucks over the i5 2500k. Mainly the pc will be used for gaming and i know that most games dont use hyper threading at this point.

So for a gaming rig. Is the extra 100$ for a 2600k worth it over the 2500k

thanks!!cheers.gif

If the rigs main priority is gaming as you said, no, you're fine with a 2500k.

For just gaming you will not notice a difference. However if you do ever decide to pick up folding then that 2600k will come in handy thumb.gif
