its a small step up however you get a better upgrade path, twice as much RAM possibilities , and it overclocks very good and dare i say almost better than a 2600k.

You said you're using the computer for gaming, the 3820 isn't a step up in any way for you then. Its overkill and a waste of money for your needs. A 2500K will run any game you throw at it with ease, especially if you overclock it. The "better" CPUs out there (2600K, 2700K, 3820, 3930K, 3960X) won't provide you with any noticeable gains. Put two rigs side by side, one with a 2500K and the other with any of the other CPUs... They will both run Diablo 3 exactly the same. Until games start to take advantage of multiple threaded CPUs, it will remain that way.

Is the 2011 platform a better platform, sure is, if you need it. However, the CPU and mobo are more expensive, the platform produces more heat so it requires slightly better cooling, and it draws more power. If you don't need it, there's zero reason to go with it. If you live near a Microcenter, look into the deals they have been running. You can get a 2500K and a mobo for right around $300. The 2500K is not only a great deal, its also a damn good CPU too. The best overclocks here on OCN are almost all done on a 2500K.

we had the same motherboard, but I work hard to pay for it, good for your dad to fund your rig.... wish I was his son also biggrin.gif the motherboard we had, performs great, its worth the money... especially for those who work hard to get.

for the psu, it has good review, so as the brand your saying but it will exceed his budget, its his discretion in the end to change brand, no problem.

100% agree with this. If you are not going to run programs that take advantage of hyperthreading (heavy rendering, etc) then no reason to buy it. That's why I didn't go with the 2600k.

A 2500k+GTX 680 will last longer and be better for gaming than a 2600k/3820+GTX 570 or whatever would be similarily priced.

2500K it is then, this was exactly the type of answer I was looking for. Now I'll have more money for all the other goodies I've been looking at! c:

An $89 difference. OMG Yeah now the GPU he already picked out needs to be thrown out of the door. rolleyes.gif
he said he already picked out all his other parts and it came up to $710. so $578+$710= 1288. And he is set until Broadwell/Skylake.
