Hmm....Am I ridiculous for thinking bottleneck? Two 7970s are a lot to keep up with.


Wow, did I really miss an entire generation? tongue.gif
Wait...Sandy was much more than a 10% increase over a Nehalem.
Okay OP, you will be looking at quite a bit more CPU.

Yeah exactly tongue.gif

That's good to know!

Some reviews are stuck at as low as 4.4GHz on Haswell with high end air and that's with 90c+ on the cores during a stress test. Yes you will get a performance increase but just for gaming I would say don't do it unless there is something wrong with your X58 setup. (something is wrong with mine so I'm forced to lap up this joke called Haswell mad.gif)

If you care about your power bill then seriously do it, it will consume much less power than your current system.

There is no need to upgrade if you're mainly gaming, yes there is a performance boost but that performance doesn't necessarily translates into gaming performance so I'd say wait a little especially when ddr4 around the corner, we could possibly see ddr4 supported with the next gen core i CPUs aka broadwell or skylake.

P.S Delidding with a razor is easy as dice thumb.gif
It makes no sense that a 930 will pull better scores then a 4670k? Well, apart from HT being a massive improvement but in reality it's no difference for most games and if at most 1-2FPS. (BF3)
Yeah, but then he'd have a bit of a CPU bottleneck.. Shenanigans hey?

Almost. SNB, clock for clock, was 20% faster than Bloomfield and IVY was 5% faster than SNB and Haswell is 5-10% faster still. So 30-35% faster overall IPC and 50-60% faster when factoring over clock(IPS).

When you have the upgrade itch, it's hard to back out. I'm not waiting another 1.5 years for an Intel "Tick-Tock" cycle when the next generation CPU's will have a negligible performance gain and cost $400. From what it's sounding like, a 30% increase at stock is more than enough for me to say yes to. If I can overclock to 4.5ghz then there is even more of a reason to bite the bullet and spend the money.

My local Microcenter is selling the 4770k for nearly 100$ less than compusa. A top of the line processor and great motherboard for $530 is too good to pass up.

I agree. I'm looking to scratch that itch too. I have a 930 running at 3.9 so a Haswell running at 3.9 stock is really tempting. Then whatever OC I can get is just gravy. I've been sitting in the category of "if you wait for the next thing you will never upgrade". I've been pricing the 4770, motherboard and ram on microcenter's site also and I may just have to pull the trigger.

Sure its 30% in benchmarks. But will you notice the difference in games and navigation of windows? Probably not.

Its nothing like upgrading a C2D to a i7 920. Its a quad core to a quad core.

Same goes to the next generation. It will still be quad core to quad core, and even if it is a 6 core, we won't see a difference in performance. The 8350 still gets, more or less, blown out of the water by these high end Intel CPUs. Everyone is waiting for nothing to happen, it seems!

You won't see much of a difference for gaming at 1080p, EXCEPT for games that tax the CPU heavily (SC2, other RTS games, etc). It's probably worthwhile though if you do enough video editing to justify it (the difference will be HUGE).
