2700 to 3770k or 3930k? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I would say neither. The 3770K isnt going to be much of an increase from what you have, if any, depending on your usage. The 3930K is nice, but you would need a new board as well. After the hassle of selling what you have somewhere like ebay, paying the fees, tearing down your rig to package and ship your products, and putting everything back together, you likely dont see any noticeable difference, and you spend a couple hundred dollars doing it.

Well I currently run the 2700k at 4.6ghz @ 1.3625v to avoid any degradation associated with the 1.4v threshold some claim exist for the sandy bridge architecture. These deals seem to good to pass up and I think I would end up probably spending $100 at most after resale of current parts to pick up a 3930k. Getting a 3770k and selling this 2700k would be pure profit assuming I can get more than 85 bucks for the chip.

I am curios if anyone is able to help me find benchmarks where the hexacore has any advantages over the 3770k. With all the leaked information on Haswell and considering the Intel Retail Prices I don't consider it worth the money to bother with Haswell.

You wouldn't notice the difference between any of these CPU's.
Stick with what you have, you'll be fine for another 2 years.
Even 4th gen isn't worth upgrading to.

Well I think what I'll do is get a 3770k for 85 and just pop it in my p8z68-D, and flip the 2700k for ~200 bucks, might as well make a $115 and get PCI-E 3.0, right? Figure that might net me ~8% gain and money, can't go wrong there!

The 3930k is quite a bit weaker per core and doesn't overclock past 4.7-4.8 usually anyway. As for games using more than 4 cores, that's what hyperthreading is for.
Barely any games support hyperthreading
