Build now or wait for Ivy? - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Just to chime in with the heavy majority here. Have patience and lets see what happens to our wallets... i meant with Ivy Bridge.


Side note: Anyone notice their wallets are getting super light these days? After Kepler and Ivy Bridge i might need to get another job...

Now this is food for thought. I want to build the best system I can with my budget, p/p ratio and all. But it's been a long wait already...

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Which gtx570 would you guys recommend?

Then with ivy bridge actually gets out buy something equivalent to 2600k and then find someone with 35 rep here to sell ur cheap 1155 pentium biggrin.gif Also 560ti HAWK is BEAST devil.gif i can run practically all my games on max settings with exception to crysis 2 and others. i did some math and did a 560ti HAWK CUDA Cores to price with an EVGA GTX 570
560ti price is roughly 220 maybe 210 (at least where i live) (took 220) from NCIX cost: $1.75 per cuda core
570 cost is around 290 so price per performance is about : $0.60
yup 570 is definately better in terms of cost to performance. and plus the price difference is only around $70-80 so yea i wud suggest getting 570 budget providing of course. keep in mind 670 and 660ti gona come out soon too so yea
It has crossed my mind to buy a cheap G620, then wait for Ivy to drop to buy a 3570K. And I am waiting to see 670/660ti when they are released, hopefully soon.

I hope it will be cheaper, if I go the SB route, but it's unlikely they'll get much cheaper anyway, at least where I live.

I wish I had a Microcenter in my area...

With the SB-e lineup out, you would think the 990X would have dropped in price, but it hasn't moved at all. Bloomfield has come down some, but its not really all that cheap (in between the cost of a 2500K and a 2600K). Just me, but I don't expect to see more than a 10% drop on SB.
Having said that, some of the previews of IB haven't been all that great. The performance gains are decent at stock levels, but the power draw and heat numbers have been disappointing. We don't really have much to go on yet when it comes to OCing, but it looks like heat is going to prevent high overclocks without something better than air cooling. All this could be very different once the retail versions hit, but so far, I think the gains on IB are looking moderate at best. If you want to OC on air, you might even do better with SB. We shall see...
Yeah, that's why I was going to wait for some benches and reviews after Ivy drops.

So yeah ivy bridge ready with pci-e 3.0 already on it just need some more money to get me a graphics card again.
A deal like that would be great for my budget, and would leave more money for a beefier GPU, which is really important to me.

Z68 has Lucid Virtu support. You are talking about Vritu MVP, which again has nothing to do with the chipset. Currently motherboard manufacturers choose to license MVP on H77/Z75/Z77.
Virtu MVP looks interesting, as little I've read about it, wonder if it's useful enough for gaming.

Patience. Well it's 2 more weeks, so I'd be crazy not wait a little longer at this point...

I'm on the same boat! LETS WAIT IT OUT! . We can get IB if the reviews are great, and if not, z68 should be cheaper (at least that is what i'm hoping).
