graphics in processor

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
hey everyone. this is going to be my first post.

i have a question in this fact because i'm going to build my first rig and i wanted to know what the difference is between the Z68 chipset for the LGA1155 socket which has the the graphics built in the processor and the X79 chipset for the new LGA 2011 socket. i notice a big change in the channels for the RAM. but the X79 Chipset does not have built in graphics on the Processor. how much of a difference does that make?

also I noticed that the x79 chipset does not have the intel smart response technology. does that make a difference in performance?

First of all, the 2011 socket is ONLY for the SB-E processors more based on heavy computing, not gaming. What are your requirements of this rig? then I will go into depth and explain the chip sets based on your needs.

well i wanted to go all out. i was waiting for the IB's to come out but i already have my case. i bought the corsair obsedian 800d and changed the usb 2.0 to usb 3.0 from the corsair website. i wanted to go all out and just buy the newest thing for this build.

i was looknig at the asus extreme IV with the x79 chipset. but i noticed it was only for overclocking the processor. i don't see you can over clock the GPU or the Memory with that.

You can.

Lack of built-in graphics do not mean anything if you're using a dedicated GPU.

Your new to this aren't you? I suggest that you put off the build a month or two, and wait for the next gen of graphics cards to come out, sometime in Jan or Feb is likely, and take the time to really put together a good wishlist, I overspent pretty badly on my first rig and that was with a years worth of trying to learn about putting together a rig and choosing the best parts.

I'm just going to say it like it is, if you are planning a gaming rig/spending more than $600 on this rig integrated graphics are crap, garbage, and you will want a dedicated card. It won't matter what chipset you get, the integrated card will not be used. At the moment I can't recommend an X79 to you only because I don't know what your be doing with this computer. If its just for gaming, like mine, it would be wise to stay with a p67/z68 build on socket 1155. x79 is faster in gaming yes, but most games won't take advantage of the extra speed and its quite a bit more expensive. If your doing work on the computer like photoshop and CAD stuff you may find it a much better buy.

now what would be the difference between the cpus, i see the extreme and the k series for the SB-E. what is so extreme about the extreme CPU?

i mainly want it for gaming but i want it to keep up with the time. it's true i should wait for the graphics but i am buying parts a little at a time. i bought my obsedian 800d and paid it in three months i'm planning on doing the same with the mobo

For gaming, I'd go with LGA 1155. If you really want the extra threads, there's a Core i7 on that platform. Few games will need six cores/twelve threads. Sure, in a few, it'll be better, but on the flipside, if you spend less and go with LGA 1155, you can get a better GPU, which will show improvement everywhere versus selectively. I'd go with LGA 1155 for gaming, and LGA 2011 if you "just want it" or have an actual use/need it for.

What's extreme about it is it's price and it's diminishing returns. You're better off getting a Core i7 3930K compared to a Core i7 3960X.

Back in the early 2000s, the Extreme Edition first came modeled after the Pentium 4s at the time. At the time, you saw a modest but fair bump in most/all things for that extreme price bump, but these days, it's more selective depending on what you're doing. With overclocking being limited to multipliers now, and that also being a past exclusive feature of the Extreme Edition CPU's, they're rather worthless these days.

The extreme CPU has got a higher stock clock and more cache. It's not really worth it over the i7-3930K, probably. Except if you're out for epeen.
