(btw, did you have that PIIx4 overclocked as much as the FX-6100?)

so the question is which are you going to use the most?
photoshop and AE would slant towards the i5. cinema4d would slant towards the 8320. and yes you can use an i5-3470 on that ECSH61H2-M2 with a bios update:
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=1228&MenuID=103&LanID=0

however you are hamstringing what overclocking you would be able to do with that board using an i5 because it won't allow you to raise the turbo binning. yes, you can overclocked a supposedly "lock" i5 look at the cpu-z in my sig.

I will surely use AE more times than cinema 4d so I might get the i5.
Gonna keep the i5 at stock settings until i save enough for a new board.

Selling the Pentium sandybridge will also get some of my cash back to add more money for the new motherboard.
These are the cheapest I could find locally that has mosfet heatsinks:
$135 http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8H77M_PRO/
$140 http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4281

Im gonna give my FX6100 to my nephew as an upgrade from his Pentium E5800 dualcore

Wait, you haven't done that yet have you? What seems to be the problem? And just as you said, RAM and Mobo depending... Which means you'll be spending more, when in reality you could spend some pocket change and get a better, unlocked processor where you will get a better clock 99% of the time. $30 bucks more than the IB version of your processor, the 3470 gets you a 3570K that does 4.2GHz out of the box on stock volts. I'll take that (and I did), thanks.

I'm not even bothering with your one-sided oppinion about AMD. It's pointless to argue, since you've jumped on the Intel love bandwagon. And that's not coming from an AMD guy, I have 5 Intel rigs in my home, and only 1 AMD APU laptop.
you're either talking complete ignorance or just out for a troll.
bclk over clocking has nothing to do with "wining the sillicon lottery" i have explained that but you seem to not understand nor did you bother to look at the cpu-z validation in my sig or you would not say the max multi is 36; btw, that was just one click in my bios aside for lowering the vcore to less than 1.2. given a bit of time to straighten out getting my ram tweaked to not get bsod in windows will get it to 107+. obviously you never read motherboard reviews or any section in them pertaining to raising the bclk.

time, patience, a bit of knowledge and lots of coffee are the four essential tools to beat hardware and software into submission. methinks you are lacking a few of those tools because the problem isn't me dear chap but you. now it begs the question, what have you done? apparently just bought an unlock processor and made one or two easy adjustments in the bios and think your some sort of enthusiast. i know what you haven't done; read the thread and know that the OP is asking about two specific processors for a specific task using a specific software. not anything about a cpu with a lock multi vs a cpu without. nor do i see that you have added anything to be of benefit to the OP nor to the discussion while crtizing others' comments.

feel free to reply if you care to but i am done. maybe you would enjoy starting your own thread to boast about your wisdom - good luck with that.

now that is the second surprise; seeing a Z77 motherboard with thunderbolt for only $5 than an H77; the first one was an i5-3470 and a FX 8320 for the same price. AMD is usually a bit cheaper. oh do you know of sin's VRM list since you are wisely looking at that when shopping for boards:

http://sinhardware.com/images/vrm.jpg

i'd like to give you the suggestion of looking around the adobe forums for AE though most topics pertain to the UI there are a few discussions on hardware. i have gleaned some good information off of there but i really do not need much since i haven't used AE in any professorial manner.

your nephew would be very pleased, you looking to be "the favorite uncle" thumb.gif

I take it that the gigabyte is better then?
I'll get that instead of the asus board. Just have to backup my files for transfer to a new rig.

Last question, what is that thunderbolt thingy? isnt that a display port?
Would I be able to to use that for a 4th monitor while my HD6850 powers 3 monitors?

thanks everyone for your help. +rep

you would need to use an adapter such as:

StarTech MDP2DVI Mini DisplayPort-to-DVI Video Adapter Converter $13.99
Quote:
Compatible with Intel Thunderbolt, when connected directly to a supporting DisplayPort over Thunderbolt I/O port.

a display itself is rather pricey.

but it is capable of transmitting data to an external SSD raid set up with:
LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt $379.00

yes i know very expensive! but there are several other peripherals such as firewire, ethernet and usb 3. it really isn't a deal breaker but it may be nice in the future to connect a camera, if supported, directly to the pci bus instead of a third parties chip.

glad to help.

Ah i forgot about those active dp adapters.
I already have one but im using it on my HD6850 for a 3rd monitor.
Its good to know i will have the option of using 4 monitors if I ever need one.

That LaCie Little Big Disk might actually come in handy for server backups
