Wanted: i7 2600 (non-K) or Xeon E3-1230+, or a crummy clocking 2600k

Wanted:
i7 2600 (non-K) or Xeon E3-1230+, or a crummy clocking 2600k

Will Ship To: Anywhere

As the title states, looking for a non-K series i7 or a Xeon capable of HT. Might consider a K series but the price has to be right, I'm not planning on doing any extreme overclocking and I've seen the 2600 and 1270 reach 4 Ghz which should be more than enough for what I need it for.

Why not just go to Microcenter and buy a 2600k for $199.
post #4 of 13
Is this for theaded stuff? If not why not get a 8120 (i know im going to get some flak for that) or an 8/12/16 core opteron. There are 8 and 12 core phenom ii based opterons if you think bulldozer sucks (dual debeb/thuben dies on one chip) but i think an overclocked 8120 would serve you well. You can het them for like $180 now. Threaded stuff is one of the few things bd does well

If OP is buying it for folding (looks like it), none of AMD CPU in 1P configuration does well in folding. Older Opteron (Magny-cours) does well only in 2P or more configuration.

Most exterme folders here have opteron rigs, so i dont know what your talking about. For things that need tons of threads an 81xx comes very close to the i7. Yes, i said it. It will take 8 amd core to take on 4 intel ones with ht, but in stuff like encoding, compressing and likly folding the 81xx comes very close to the i7, while being cheaper. For most things, gaming and stuff the 81xxs are absolutly destroyed by intels i7 and i5s. But in this... You can get an 8120 cheaper then an i7, so if its threaded stuff its something to look at. Used 8120 maybe $130-$150. Used i7, at best maybe $200-$250. Also socket 1155 is dead after ivy, where as socket am3+ will last into steamroller maybe excavator. More upgrades in the future. Is good as the 3770k (witch 1155 will limit you to) may be, im guessing excavator will be better, just as the phenom iis are better then the c2q. The amx line is the longest lastest socket ever, and will last at least for the next 4 years. 1155, is a dead man walking.

1P is one processor. 2P is two processors on the motherboard. So on.

Folders who use Opteron are doing so on 2P or more configuration. When you use BD or Opteron on 1P (standard desktop) configuration, it loses to i7 considerably. BD is nice when it is dealing with integer operation (encoding and compression are example of integer operation). Folding is not. Folding is all about floating point operation. BD at most only has 4 FPUs. So it acts like a quad core in folding.

Reread what I have wrote, then go to folding section and learn a few things there.

Then why not get some phenom ii based 8/12 core opterons? Theyve get all the fpus

Because older 8/12 cores model of Opteron (Magny-cours) can only be run at 2P or 4P due to socket limitation. It is not worth it to run 4/6 cores model of Opteron (Lisbon) in 1P because it produces less ppd (points per day) than comparable Sandy Bridge.

1) The closest MC to me is 14 hours away, give or take. I'd be willing to have someone buy it and ship it to me for a convenience fee, but that sounds a bit sketchy and I'm not sure that OCN's ToS allows it.

2) The only way I'm going to AM3+ is when Piledriver comes out. Power consumption is of a primary concern.

3) I'm primarily buying this for gaming, encoding and other things, but obviously will be folding on it when not.

4) I'm well aware of G34 folding, as I got burned by trying to put together a socket F build on the eve of the bigadv changes. If my budget allowed for anything of G34 nature, I would buy it but that won't be happening any time soon. Sure, I could risk placing some higher clocked CPU's and RAM into my current build, but I really don't have that much faith in putting money into an otherwise useless platform (Dead socket, my board has no PCI-E suitable for video cards, proprietary layout, among other reasons). As such, this as well as my proposed build will be folding SMP units until I have the budget that will allow me to fold bigadv, and that may be a long while.
