Should I build 4770K rig or wait for up-coming 4930K/4960X?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm just about to build a rig, but I'm hesitating due the new CPU release, should I go with 4770K or wait for 4930K/4960X?

and the second concern I've is: will up-coming 4930K be core2core equal with 4770K in terms of speed? or 4960X be equal with 4770K core2core speed?

I'm really confused, my build is 2500$+, so I dont wanna go to wrong direction since it's not less money and I wanna get something worth to that price... any suggestions either waiting for IVB-E or current Haswell 4770K?

also do you think up-coming IVB-E will also bring new mobos and rams alongside with it? or they'll remain the same?

Thanks.

It depends on what you will be doing with your PC. Gaming wise, the difference in FPS you find between the 4770K and 4930K will be negligible. However in other uses such as video rendering or CAD development the added cores will do wonders.

Thanks for response:) this is what I'll be doing on it

programming(c++,python,delphi etc), web design(a bit), web programming(php,java,ajax,flash,html etc... - including some database and mysql stuff), alongside with all these ill be running Windows Server on virtual machine most of the time and have server running on it(for tests purposes) also will be running 2 Linux distros on virtual machine as well, gaming, general use. So... no video editing, photo editing or rendering, tho might do some little 3D graphics(but im not pro in it, so its gonna be in casual way)

Thanks.

Not quite, but also includes gaming smile.gif my primary concerns are programming, web programming, running windows server and 2 linux distros on virtual machines, so basically 3 OSs on virtual machines, some work with database and mysql, as well as scripting and programming.

I do all of that with a 3770k and more and hardly hit my limit. Granted, you will need plentiful amounts of ram.

Then a 4770K will be plenty for you unless you really feel the tug from the OCN mania of getting the best thumb.gif.

Personally I would wait. New X79 will also be out. They will have a K quad core if you don't want the 6 core. 4770k is not something I would chose if you want to get a nice OC.
