How are the other games you mention? SWTOR is not optimized for SLI..

Core i5 2500k and an ASRock P67 or Z68 board gets my vote.

Hi All,
There appears to be some question as to the level of performance difference here so I will clarify it for you all.
Both systems, Corsair 750HX P/S, HAF 932 case, Hyper 212+ cooler, GSkill 12800 8 gig ram, LG Bluray burnrer, MSI DVD writer, Visiontek 5850 vid board at 850 core and 1200 ram.
1100T sys as above with Gigabyte M 780XT-UD4P Heaven 724 1687 DX9/DX11 3dmark06 21500

I7 2600K sys, as above with Asus P8Z68 V Pro- Gen3 mobo Heaven 910/1800 3DMark06 25500,
Do the math. This is a significant boost in performance. I was a little surprized at the increase in DX11 but then if overall system thoughput increased then it males sense.

This is not debatable I own and run both these configs and these ARE the results I get.
Have a great day

I was looking at this mobo.

1: because of the arrangements of the PCI-E and other components

2: It matches my Blue/black rig I've been building..haha


I heard a few people mention this mobo. So thoughts?

No question about the performance difference between AMD and Intel here. We all know that Intel is faster/better/stronger. But since I don't sit and benchmark all day, AMD is good enough for me. smile.gif I still recommend a 2500k for OP. I might change my opinion about the mobo, though. Can't keep up with the multitude of 'em these days..
