AMD Fangirl switching to Intel on a $1,000 budget - Page 3

post #21 of 63
Nothing much else to say since everybody else have said it already.I gotta say though,that's a really good price for the 2600K.Are you in Japan cause that's $40 cheaper than the cheapest here in the States.You can save even more money and get the 2500K and put that towards a HD 6950.Some do unlock to a HD6970.Some easier than others and some with more success rate than others.If you're comfortable doing that sort of thing then you get another free performance boost.Everything else on your list is good.

@mingqi53 Ok, I'll go ahead and add the SSD to my budget. I think I'll get rid of my old HDs and replace them too. I've been itching for some TBs :3

@Zorginator wow that is really helpful!! I did what you said and added my old shameful rig. it isn't much... It's actually in pieces. I'm working from a laptop from 1998, so you can see why I'm desperate to get this computer built.

@bleachigo Yes I am in Japan. biggrin.gif So I will actually be getting some parts from Akiba.

It's going to take a long time for me to figure out what I want, I have to go and research every item everyone's posted. But for sure I'm getting the 2500K, I didn't realize they where so close!

I am also going to change the mobo, so I'll be going through everyone's suggestions. Looks like I'll have to take a look at the PSU as well. You guys are the best!! <3

I'm off to do some research!

i am sorry but you can turn off HT at any point, and then turn it back on when its needed for video editing and the such. For P/P yea its strong, but so is AMD at P/P. This is Intel side, but of course is $100 bucks or so worth HT for you? I don't buy CPUs without HT.

I personally regret not getting a 2600k... pretty sure they're known for achieving better clock speeds.

At the end of the day you'd be lucky to be running 4.8Ghz/5Ghz 24/7 sensibly. Save a few bob and grab something like a Hyper 212+ and some Gentle Typhoons and get yourself to 4.5Ghz and just stay there.
A lot of people will probably disagree with me on the CPU heatsink front, this is OCN afterall, but that's my two cents.
EDIT: Epic Ninja tongue.gif

Luck is half the game when it comes to multipliers (if not more). So getting rid of that extra heat that comes with a non golden chip makes that much more sense when your going for the max the chip can do...
as for 24/7 clocks 4.7-4.9 is ideal.... and is very doable with a d14 imho

Since you will use your computer for video editing/encoding, I heavily recommend against switching the i7 2600k since HT is incredibly useful for that. Also, if you have the extra budget, buying an SSD for your OS drive is an incredibly smart purchase (even a 60GB drive would suffice).

I second this.

Depends on how much video work she does. Will the extra $100 be justified by the extra performance.

Nope, 2500Ks usually get the higher clocks, 2600Ks achieve similar when HT is off; which is basically a 2500K then...

Is the extra 300Mhz worth it for an extra spend of ~$30? Also I'm pretty sure that RAM's heat spreaders get in the way of the D14.
