i realy dont know witch one to chose, because the 400€ can be used for a lot other stuff smile.gif

For me it's "no questions asked" the 4930k, and that's what I did. With the price difference you can get better RAM for example (hopping your IMC support it). Or half of an insanely good Caselabs. biggrin.gif

Witch cpu should i go for?
4930k or 4960x ?

is 4960x worth it or what?
because when comparing the two cpu's its not much performance to get for the money?

This is one of those questions where, if you have to ask, then the 4960 is not the one for you.

4960's are supposedly on wafers from close to the center of the crystal.

Generally, that would give them a better statistical chance of being better clockers at lower voltages.

You can't take that for granted though, . . . . .

It just maybe gains you a bit of advantage in the silicon lottery.


Even if they do have a little bit of an edge, it still doesn't do much good until you're experienced and knowledgeable enough to be able to make use of it.

For most guys, it's all about e-peen and bragging rights.

About the only place you'll ever see an advantage is in some benchies. . . . . It certainly won't perceptibly change how your games play.

Get the 4930, learn all about how to clock it and maximize its potential, then . . . . if you want to go thru all that again, for a couple more percent of performance gain in a few limited areas, sell it and buy a 4960, or whatever is the e-peen symbol at that time.

Putting the $400 towards something you use all the time or need to improve seems a better purpose . . .

Another GPU, a hi-res or 4K monitor maybe . . .

ahhhh, here is the motherboard I would have purchased if I was not waiting for the Asus Rampage V Extreme (Haswell Extreme).

You have a 3960x?

A 4930k and 4960x is not an upgrade. Wait for Haswell-E.

She gave you the correct answer

 

The 4960x costs as much as 2x4930k's for a SLIGHTLY better chip. Either you absolutely must have the best cpu on the market and are willing fork up as much as they ask you to, or you're better off going with the 4930k, just like the SB-E generation

 

The X's are NEVER EVER EVER 500 bux worth of a better CPU than the K. If the 500 bux doesn't matter to you, then the X is the right choice. If you're looking for a price:performance ratio than the 4930k without question
