Moving from my 2600 non k to an AMD 8350 , worth it? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I wouldn't bother, but that's just me.

Trying to futureproof is pointless with a downgrade or at best sidegrade when prices can only go down

I think you can OC locked CPUs about 400MHz if your motherboard lets you? H61 is locked though

In the long run AMD option is cheaper...

What on earth are you talking about with one weaker core and one stronger core? They're 8 the exact same cores. The only weakness about the cores is your claim about their weakness.

Actually, the biggest weakness of those so-called "cores" is that the two of them inside each module share the same L2 cache and a single FPU. They're like freakishly conjoined twins, when you get right down to it. And if you've ever seen a 3-legged race, then you know why AMD's FX chips have such lousy IPC...

Then definitely a good idea, unless you also plan to run SLI or crossfire setup.
I think you should persist with your 2600 for the time being, and wait for new gen of processors.

But, if you can get a 8350 + motherboard at the selling price of 2600+ your H61 motherboard, then only go ahead and buy it.
