Picked up my 3770K and Asus Z77 Sabertooth today :) - Page 9

post #81 of 85
ive read in some places that the 3820 and 3930k arent as good when it comes to gaming, is this true?

Looks sick man, debating between sabertooth and extreme4 myself... And I must say that the asrock's xfast ram doesnt sound bad.
Decisions, decisions, decisions... rolleyes.gif

Yeah, that's (kinda) true. X79 as a platform is better for multi-gpu systems because it has more lanes, but the CPU's themselves dont give as good a gaming performance as sandys/ivys do. But on the other hand, cpu has so little effect on games nowadays that it doesnt really matter...
e: and I'm not sure if this thread is the best place to discuss x79...

Lol why are you asking that in this thread ?
@Schwuar RIVE or MSI big bang II or ASRock X79 champion, pick your poison.
@Frankrizzo It's a fine mobo based on the reviews. Dunno about US prices though so cant comment on that.
