Just ordered 2600K. should i go with 2500K?? - Page 2

post #11 of 28
keep the 2600K. 8Gbs is plenty. Video editing you may need more.

L3 cache is only as good as its hits, so the more you have the more accurate it may be.

All from all. but mostly Cubase / FL-Sutdio / super multi tabs with Firefox / Encoding and ripping videos / encoding audio CDs and also games.

Most of those workloads would benefit from the HT, and the 2600K would be better for them. +$130 worth of better? Not sure... Maybe some seconds off of shorter rips, and minutes off of longer encodes. If budget isn't critical, then I would say the 2600K since you will at least see a benefit in some of your tasks. It should also OC better (with HT off) and have a better resale value, if those things are important.

If gaming is priority, and your budget is tighter, a 2500K and adding the $130 to your budget for a GPU would benefit you the most. It could go towards an SSD also.

dont look back.. get the 2600K. Cubase and FL Studio user here
do you feel its powerful with HT?

and the man above - its to have braging right for sure. but its HT vs more RAM. im no sure what to pick. if someone have prove and stuff what will be better?

I'm not entirely sure what the problem is...

Because... if you think you need more RAM, you're probably using programs that benefit from HT. Which in turn would run better on an i7.

So I'm not quite sure, why you'd go with an i5 and more RAM. Since you'll probably benefit from HT if you think you'll need 16GB of RAM.

TL;DR

Keep i7

Tnx man very good comments there. i do have an ssd - the vertex2. im also doing alot of Virtual machines via Vmware. ya i will really like to OC it since iv heard its very good on 1155. the resale value thing is very good i think

if 130$ = 8gb ram then return that too, save 130 off the cpu and 90 off the ram and invest it in better video solution of better screen or something. 2600k and high speed ram are the worst 2 places to invest your money in when buying a computer

also vm will never be good on 1155 since theres no VT and 2600k/2500k have no difference in its performance

Yeah i think you are an ideal 2600k user, gamers should just stick to the i5 unless its for bragging rights lol
