CPU upgrade. Need some opinions.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay so I am building my brother a computer, I am planning on just giving him my 2500k and P8Z68-V Pro GEN3 so I can upgrade to IB or an LGA 2011 CPU.

I guess I'm just wondering how the 3930k will stack up to the haswell CPUs or IB-E but it's way to early to tell.

I guess my 2 options are:

Go cheaper and get Ivy with a z77 board and then upgrade to haswell later

or

Spend a lot of money on a 3930k and a nice 2011 board like the big bang Xpower II or Asus rampage IV extreme and skip haswell. Then instead of haswell upgrade to IB-E if the performance is worth it.


I can't decide what to do some I need some opinions. thumb.gif

Thanks biggrin.gif

3930k and the 3820 are sandy bridge-E chips. Theres Ivy bridge-E chips to come on socket 2011 before Haswell. Probably not until the back end of this year though.

If your only gaming then a 3930k just isn't necessary. Saying that though. I dont need a 3930k but if I had the money I would get one.
