The idea of it working with your gpu is to increase the quality of game play by making the controls feel sharp and reactive, reduce input lag, reduce screen rating.
I guess so it's like playing at 200fps without screen tearing like v sync would do with no input lag.

So you are saying that it will help the dedicated graphics card? Hmm.. like smooth games and faster reaction time? Is it a good enough trade off for the supposedly "hotter" temps?

The iGPU running on my 2500K + Z68 board made no heat that I could ever measure independently, and I never noticed core temps climb higher while using the iGPU.

People are still unsure what Lucid Virtu MVP, Hyperformance and Virtual Vsync are going to be doing for them cause it kinda does sound complicated and gimmicky, especially if you've never dealt with subtle performance issues like input lag or frame jitter.

That article at Anandtech is one I haven't seen---it's pretty good as describing what happens with iGPU's and Virtu MVP, and why people would want it.

That might explain it better. I'm still learning it myself.

But yes it offloads some stuff to the iGPU.

Or maybe this review is better

No! Join me and many others on the "Tock" cycle and wait for new micro-architecture... aka Haswell.

If you HAVE to do something before next year go LGA2011 for sure... ya I said it biggrin.gif

Haha... if you look at my current build though... you see I waited for years and years already. I'm still ont he LGA775

Well, to get your topic any closer to a new build. You should provide a budget, that will tell if you can afford one thing over the other. Obviously your limited as if you weren't you would just outright and buy a 3960x.

Well... as I said in the initial post. It is either going to be the 3820 or the 3770K. its within the 330SUSD to 355USD range. I never go for super processors because it is a waste in my opinion. I get the middle to high-middle processors due to its price and besides in the next few years there'll be another processor that can wipe out the old batch anyway. Same reason why I don't get SLi.

So your budget is about $600-700. In that case I still stand beside my first post in this topic. A 3820 isn't going to do you any good in gaming and even some photoshop with a GT 430. Best thing about it is the 2500k comes with native 1333mhz support so you can run your old ram to cut corners on cost. I'd still get 2500k + GTX 480 + Mobo + Hyper 212+ and bring it up to at least 4.0Ghz. Like said it will do all you want it to and more. I see no reason to go cost crazy and take hits to other areas of your system. The only downside is your current PSU has a split 12v rail, which is not good for power hungry cards when its rated below 600w.

I think the OP said he wanted his processor to last 5-6 years... that rules out everything but socket 2011.

Sorry bro, I have no plans on getting a 2nd gen i5. My GT430 will soon be a GTX660 or GTX660Ti or probably any of the 6xx series of Nvidia. I think the GT430 will work fine as it is until the new nvidia 6xx arrives. I'll run the new processor and motherboard using the current ram and graphics card for the moment.

Plus I don't think it is much of a good idea to get the 2nd gen processors. The price difference isn't that great compared to the ivy bridge processors. The major difference getting a 2nd gen processor is that there are more motherboard choices which will probably allow me to find a cheaper mobo.

At this point its either I get the processor and mobo first... or I wait a few months and get the graphics card first. I'm guessing waiting another few months is ideal since that will also allow waiting time for other motherboard choices. Who knows, they may come up with a motherboard with single graphics card slot like the one I'm using now.

I am not sure how people would know which is a dead socket and which isn't. I know for sure my 775 is already a dead socket but that is dead obvious. Who really knows maybe both of these sockets are dead? Maybe there's a socket 3000? Not unless you're intel employees that is.
