Should I buy a 2011 Platform ? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Wait for Haswell and then decide. Your current system is more than enough for gaming and other multitasking stuff.

I see your motive for X79. I would recommend waiting for ivy bridge-e but that won't come out until Q3 2013 so you could just get a 3820 with an X79 board and have room to upgrade later.

The asrock x79 extreme6 has 3 PCI-e 3.0 lanes running at x16 x16 x8 which should be fine with 3 480's.

I would go X79/3820 over another 1155 CPU right now, but honestly that 2500k should be fine until the next gen comes out.

Hey !
some fresh news today.
I missed the 2011 combo CPU+ Mobo (i7 3820/gigabyte UD3).
And i did some calculs :
a 2011 platform will cost me 280+300 = 580 € too expensive for a new build...
Or i can buy a second hand built , and it will cost me around 450€ . Good choice ?
after that if i buy a 2011 cpu i can get an hexa core CPU biggrin.gif
But i think take a regular processor like the i7 2700K.
I don't really know...
What is your advices ?
have a nice day.

ahahaha thanks for the comment.
Sorry for my language , i know that i do some mistakes but i have just the B1 certification of Cambridge.
i am not Bilungual...
And for the name swag it's just a metaphor...
So i think i won't buy a 2011 platform... too expensive for a guy like me and yes a hat will cost less than a PC build.
So last question before closing the thread :
it is usefull to have 2 PC gamer builds ?
thanks
I will also build a pc server for my family.

I would say the only reason to have two builds would be to have 2 separate uses. For example:

1)Primary PC: powerful, mid tower or full tower, used for heavy gaming.
2)HTPC: usually mini-itx, keep it in your living room for media.
3)Custom Steambox: micro-atx or mini-itx PC that sits in the living room and can run games in steam's big picture mode like a console.

why wouldn't you have the stream big picture and the HTPC tasks on one machine?

also, you've forgotten servers.
