Building new rig fairly soon......sum questions...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
As you can see i am still rocking a 775 socket, but to be honest it is really holding its own, i play allot of BF3 and SC2 mostly.......i am still very very happy with the performance and i still question if i should just keep on holding on to it........the only time i have some kinda unhappiness is when im playing BF3 and record with MSI afterburner, it almost cuts the frames to round HALF.....30-40fps... I also do editing with Adobe premier elements 11

I am really close to building a new i5 3570k with a giga UD5H with 8gb ram most likely samsungs with either Sammy 840s SSD or Crucial M4s, and the cooler is up in the air, either Kraken X60, the new H110, or the new SWIFTECH all in one soultion that i think has not come out yet...

1)How much gain will i see with how my systems recording gameplay in BF3? and how much gains in rendering in elements 11?

2)Will the next gen 1150 socket be worth it to wait? the one thing is i might have to wait another year after it comes out to see any issues with boards or chips, or even knowing which brand work better or which combo OC better.......when the 3570k has been out and tested for awhile already.

3)Or should i go with the 3770k for video editing? from what i hear it could affect gaming but by only a small degree.....

If the 3570k or the 3770k beats my Q9550 OCed chip in rendering by double then i will move on to it but if its by something like 15-25% better i might just wait till the difference is much much BIGGER or till my chip fries but its been going VERY STRONG for last 4-5yrs now....

What do you guys think? LOL sorry too much typing, its just ive been wrestling with the thought of upgrading for awhile now...

Thanks

1) You will probably see a fairly large difference, your CPU is most likely bottlenecking your 7970 because my 7950 ran BF3 at 90FPS.
2) Dont worry about waiting for next gen, the first round of the next gen will be riddled with bugs as it always is, you always wait for 2nd gen
3) I have the 3570k and I have no problems with render times. It will be faster with the 3770k, but I personally dont think its worth the extra $100

As for the cooler, the Corsair H100 is fantastic and I recommend it to anyone. Samsung makes fantastic SSD's, same as Intel, Kingston, Corsair and Adata.

Any other questions just ask wink.gif
*EDIT* Also make sure to get some 1866 Mhz ram!

1)With my current rig i get about 75-90s avg on max everything...my cpu % is usually running at around 89-95% and when i record its like 98-100% LOL, another FUNNY thing is i actually bought another 7970 to CF and i got like 25-40fps most likely to bottleneck, and i returned it.... but it seems that with my OC its just barely or a little bit bottleneck with a single card..

2)I agree allot with either buying the current gen or wait another year to see if the next gen works out its kinks.

3)I kinda get that feeling if the difference is not that much for rendering and such like that then i will get the 3570k plus with it actually hurting fps in gaming" NO LIKELY" talking bout comparo with 3770k

I know the H100 is good but i am trying to get to the 5ghz and i want to cool it as best as poss. the H110 looks very interesting with 2x140mm fan/rad also the Swiftech looks like a winner too......if the Kraken X60 and H110 performs ruffly the same im going Corsair U KNO IT!!!

And with the SSDs i want something that will be RELIABLE i will sacrifice a little speed for reliability.

I think you need to ask yourself the question "is there something else I need/want to do with this money?" If the answer is "yes," you have your answer given that you said you can do what you need with the hardware you have. If your answer is "no," ... then you have your answer again.
