post #3641 of 38701
always looking at a deal but honestly I could just buy outright ... and just wait for the C2 .... but still wondering about 7970 and 3930k ... guess I feel okay with my i920 at 4.4 ... I get great fps but wonder if gaming performance and gpu would play better with new build out ... feel like the answer is obvious but never know .. folks would say don't get the 2500 if you can hit 4.4. on your i920 ... won't be that different...

I think the 3930k will shine in multi-gpu based systems, but for a single 7970 it's completely not needed.

When I made the jump from my 4.2ghz 920 to 5.2ghz 2600k, I was bottlenecked in the Metrobench thread. The 2600k allowed me to gain a lot of frames. Now that I'm using a 2600k, I don't see a lot of reason to go to a 3930 unless I breathed and lived 3dmark 11. tongue.gif

900 is a bit of a steal though isn't it?

Clocks are obviously different but even with that, I'm on a slower platform right? There's many factors, but one thing is for sure, and that is a 2600k is not holding me back.

Great to see ... I'm thinking I just need to jump +1 for the charts

So my 920@4.2 is holding back my single 7970 compared to for example the 2600k in games like BF3?

I have been told that is perfectly safe.

That is true in single player. In 64 player Multi-player, there is a heavy CPU influence on frame-rates as has been discussed and screen shotted many times in this thread.
