... But at the rate things have been going with processors maybe I wouldn't even upgrade then. wink.gif

Haswell is a bore to me as well. Amds 5ghz vishera has me more interested then Haswell and it won't even be as fast

I agree. I came into this thinking maybe it's time to throw in the towel on my trusty 930. Maybe I'll do a 2nd 7970, get a 120hz monitor at some point this year, and upgrade my cpu+mobo+ram next year and carry the 7970s over!
post #44 of 77
i say no to the 2nd 7970 only for micro studder i could see it on my old 4850 (single card) then i got a 260 then 280 then 285 then 480 then 480 sli then 580. i used to get ati/amd cards all the time but the 4850 was a let down.

now on the cpu deal i say no. only if you want lower power bills but then again cost of update is not cost effective, i would say a 770 or 780 or something like that i love my 120hz monitor to much to go bigger screen as i get 90-120fps in bf3 (lower in some maps) with the dieing 580 i got(ram on gpu@ 1600mhz).

I would say pick up a 970-990x i seen a few on the for sell section on here for $300-$400 (the 990x was lapped) im not getting a new cpu till 6-8 cores my 930 is good @ what i need it to do. even if i got the cash i would get a 970+ cpu and a new gpu and new ssd . but every one is different in what they need/want. Im so happy the 930 lasted this long and cpu limit is not pushed as hard i just want the days of topend gpus to be @ 300 not the 600 dollar price we got now.

Maybe get a 1440 monitor or upgrade your audio, unless you are already set.

That is one main thing I was afraid of. The micro-stutter. I had 5870s in crossfire and the micro-stutter made me want to throw my pc through a wall. Don't tell me it's just as bad with 7970s?

You CPU will play anything 4770K can so no point. At best it will be 20% faster Clock/Clock.

Not even that fast zeal. I forgot who it was but my 4.4ghz 2133memory Bloomfield was 16% slower in fire strike physics then a members 4.6ghz 4770k with 2666 memory.

Keep your 930 unless you are just itching to upgrade. From a performance standpoint, the difference will only be noticed in benchmarks and on paper.

Not in games. The difference at the same clock speed is very small.

I no longer have use of hyperthreading feature as I mainly use the computer to play games.
HT has been beneficial for games, going on years now.
New games use threads however they can get them.
