Feedback for a build im planning

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so i got a videocard on the way (7870) and i was thinking about building a second rig to go with my sig rig. I was thinking about just getting a $100 cpu like a AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE, or AMD FX-4100 but then i was thinking, my rig only has a 2500k, do you think it would be better off holding out and getting a new cpu/mobo for my main rig, maybe wait till Ivy Bridge- E ??

Im not in a crazy rush to do this build, but my main rig is finished so looking to continue my hobby on to a second build, this second computer i hope to build would strictly be for gaming at 1920x1080

Man I need to sleep. I wrote the thread topic 3 times like

 

" Facebook for a build im planning " Got me confused tongue.gif

 

Back to your question

 

I also asked around the forums to upgrade for Ivy Bridge - E but at the end for me there was no use. I wouldnt really feel the difference much in gaming. So I ditched it.

 

You can always get a 3570k and use the 2500k in your other build.

 

Also if you are not in rush, can you wait for Hashwell?

 

Last but not least, do you really need the 2nd PC? I can undestand a 2nd monitor but if you are the only one gaming in the household won't 2 PCs for gaming be much?

Need is never the question, its always about the WANT , and ya want this second build for lan partys at my place, i even have a m14x... but this build is going to be in a smaller case like a Prodigy or TJ08-E so i can hook it up to my tv in my room..

Even tho i don't think id ever use the extra cores and compute power of Sandy/ Ivy-Bridge - E chip, seems like a decent upgrade, rather doing a side grade to a 3570/3770, if im upgrading my main, im going with LGA2011 or haswell.

its just cost that has me on the fence.. $300 for LGA2011 mobo i want and then $300 for i7 3820 or $600 for i7 3930k

I wouldnt mind the pci-e 3.0 which my sig rig dont have..

I totally get you. :)

 

But yeah in your situation I would wait for the hashwell.

 

Again I was in the same boat and thinking to get a 3930k and a x79 motherboard, but for too much price it wouldnt be a worthy upgrade so I decided to wait for hashwell anc jump on to that generation.

 

Choice is always yours though thumb.gif
