[SOLVED] Do I really need 3930k? - Page 4

post #31 of 111
This is OCN! Go big or go home! 3960x or bust!

Seriously though, just get a 2600k. There's very little difference between the 2600k and the 2700k, and there's almost no reason to spend the extra $15 to get the 2700k when you could just as easily spend it on food.

Should I get a LGA 1155 board and a i3 processor and save up till the new Ivy Bridge comes out. Also WHEN IT COMING OUT? I hear talk but does anybody know when. So much for march release.

You don't need a 3930k. Just get the 2600k. You'll still have hyperthreading. You just won't have 6 cores. The difference between the 2 is not a huge amount. You won't be waiting 5 extra minutes for a video to encode just because you bought a 2600k instead of a 3930k. It's more like maybe 1 minute at most.

I'd get 2500k + Rampage unless you really need the HT.

I don't think the added performance makes up for the difference in cost between the two. I don't think there are many instances you will ever need that many cores.

A 3930k vs a 2600k. Clearly the 3930 wins but I don't think it's worth double the price.

Even a 2500k vs the 3930k doesn't show much difference (in real world situations, the 2500k is slaughtered in benchmarks)

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/552?vs=288

I think you should get a 2500k. If for some reason you aren't satisfied you won't be out a lot of money (assuming you sell it) and you can upgrade to something else, like ivy bridge.

I think because of 22nm process Core i7 3770k will overclock like hell..& still stays cool as compare to sandy bridge..thumb.gif

I would say 2600k for sure, but you say you are taking a whole year off before you start college. I guess you could spend big for the 3930k and then just make sure you are working like full time + over time/ 2 jobs that whole year off to save the money back up. Basically I just think you should have a good amount of money saved up when you start college is all. In your later semesters, the class load may make it had to work close to full time and go to all your classes; it did for me anyway.

I say 3930k and join OCN folding team tongue.gif

but if you get a 2600k you could get RAID SSD's and get more performance there.

I did a course that had some gaming work in it and i made do with a P4 and 9800gt (made do but yelled alot in anger at waiting) so the 3930k seems massive over kill
