2600k or wait?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

My old platform had an issue with the power supply so I decided to upgrade it ( Lets do it now that I got all my pc all over the place).

So first of all, I was on 1366 socket with a 920 procesor. Had it at 4 ghz and was a very nice procesor. I guess 2600k kills it in any way right?

Second, Ive read that ivys are close but I guess they will be quite expensive at the begining and will take a month or so once its announced.

My question is.

If you could get an 2600k for 225€ NEW and a Asrock fatal1ty p67 for 120€, would you go for 2600k or wait for ivy? Is it really gonna be MUCH better than the 2600k?

The batch of the procesor is L147B448, is it any good?

The 2600k costs equivalent to 300€ in my country, so 225€ is very cheap for a brand new 2600k. The difference between ivy bridge (3770K) and sandy bridge 2600k is only small, say 5-10%. You wont notice the difference between the two in everyday uses, only really if you were to be using the cpu for folding@home or to process large amounts of video editing.

Im not so sure about the asrock fatalty motherboard, but have a look on Newegg.com and see what the reviews are like or ask owners on here what they think.

Either way Id recommend getting the 2600k, its a decent price an a really decent processor.

I would buy now, but go for a z68 board with sata 3.0 (Not that it really matters) that is capable of running ivy bridge just so when/if you do want to upgrade you are compatible.

Many Thanks for your replies.

This is exactly the one, the next gen ( not ivy) wont be the same socket right? If it wont be the same socket I dont mind if its not z68 because 2600k should be enough for 2 years huh?

How much is that motherboard on your country? 120 € good price?

Im planing to use my 480 SLI on it, might get a 3thd.

ivy bridge will use the same socket as sandy bridge. so you can upgrade whenever you want.

Buy a good cooler and a gen 3 board w/2600k and it will last you 2 years easily. Nearly all the 2600k chips will do 4.5-5Ghz easily with a good cooler. The Ivy's will be slightly faster then the Sandys at the moment, (same 1155 socket as sandys) but not much and it won't be worth the money to upgrade from a Sandy to an Ivy.

The Fatal1ty boards are a complete waste of money IMO. I would also look at getting a Z68 or Z77 chipset motherboard, instead of a P67 board. The Gen 3 Z68 boards offer more features and overclock better then their P67 cousins.
