I7 2700K vs I7 3930k

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have seen some specs and graphs, yes graphs, even though graphs are sometimes misleading. Let me give you some back ground, I am a watercooler, and a mid-level enthusiast, I am ready to leave the 1366 market and move to a new gen, my needs with a new socket is 2 years before upgrade, my uses are a gamer but not extreme gamer, i also am a private pilot and love to use FSX to tune skills but everyone knows its a demanding program, would the six core prove better or would the fast 2700k work better?

Thanks, will add +rep

The 3930K will be overkill for your needs, but the 2700K isn't really a wise investment because Haswell is coming out soon. If you want to upgrade I'd wait a few months for socket 1150, that i7 930 will still hold you over nicely until then.

Get something in between.. 3770K.. new batches are said to be better. and it will last the time you need. the 3930K is just too expensive
