any of these options i mentioned earlier will do the job just as good for gamming and better for overclocking

False info is false info.

SB-Es have CPU straps you can use to overclock the BLCK unlike mainstream SB platforms. You can easily overclock a partially locked i7 3820 to 4.8GHz+.

Anyways
That article I linked shows you everything about BF3, various resolutions and ultra settings.

I entirely agree with, you want low res otherwise it becomes purely about the GPU(s)

Gotya, i understand more about the abilities of a paritally unlocked mulitipler. Totally miss-uderstood how far you could overclock the BCLK and what specs on wiki meant by setting the BCLK to up to x2.5. In light of this it makes the i7 3820 more attractive. Thanks for pointing that out and worthy info of a rep smile.gif

Likewise and fair enough.

Food for thought: in a few multimedia applications we're seeing HT increase the i7's throughput by almost 0% (some photography suites FWIR). These are applications that might be poised to reap benefits from the hyper-threading technology, but for one reason or another they don't (high efficiency of CPU resources, little or no optimizations for HT).

Add to that the situations where HT on substantially reduces compute power. The 2600/2700K generate far more GFLOPS with HT off in LinX, for example. I personally prefer to think that the future of gaming will both be quite threaded while generating high efficiencies and utilization of our processor resources, obviating any need of HT -- not to say that there's any benefit from it now.

Well thanks for all the responses guys! Some were very informative and helpful, others blunt, and some that caused arguments....lol. But thanks all the same.

I started to shift my interest to the 2500k and was pretty sure thats what i was going to do. But then i got to thinking, Maybe hyper threading wouldnt be such a useless tool...i mean the way its seems to me, one day, games may take use of it. I also read somones post who was talking about having a "gaming only" pc...and some people argued that while a lot of us say that, we tend to use our rigs for whatever we want to do right then and there. So if heavily threaded apps do show up at some point for me, ill be ready.My goal here is to build a beast, but build one that has more or less the most up to date features available so that there is less of a chance that ill run into situations where ill want to do something and wont be able to. At least not for a while.

I just need to match something to the new vid cards. I want them to play nice, you know?

The price of the 2500k is very appealing though.
And btw, to those that suggested the top end sandy bridge-E CPU, your suggestion is totaly valid, but believe me, $1.100 is way out of my price range! haha. It would be nice though, i admit.

And lastly, somone mentioned that i may want to use a 3 monitor config for surround/Eyefinity. Im actually running an Eyefinity setup currently. The reason i said that id be using 2 monitors is because i have two right now one of which will just be extra desktop realestate for now , and need to save some money to buyy the third, and then ill setup the Eyefinity portion of this build.

The benefits of the hyper-threading of the 2600K are very real and very substantial in a variety of multimedia applications such as CD/DVD ripping and video encoding. If you plan on engaging in these activities in a weekly basis (or more frequently), the 2600K is worth the money in time savings. If they're only things you might chance upon doing and realistically will probably never or seldom actually do, you're spending a good $70-90 more for naught.

Realistically speaking if ever the 2600K sees a performance benefit over the 2500K in gaming, both processors will already be extremely obsolete and your computer won't really be so much of a "beast" in anyone's eyes. That situation might entail that the gaming landscape is favoring 6-8 core processors, and the CPU market would shift accordingly. This shift would have you waiting a long time (hence the idea of Sandy Bridge obsolescence).

At this point are you asking what video cards to get?

And if you want a beast for more than just gaming I highly agree with friend'scatdied, go for the 2600k for more potential in other areas than just gaming.
