Sorry if it went off topic.
I wanted to know if is worth it to spend like 700USD for a 2P x58 system or spend more and get a 2011 with DDR4.

Which model of 56xx? Is that price for the whole system? RAM, drives, premium psu, gpu, bespoke case, blingie lights and exclusive designer carrying case?

What is the task(s) required for the system? 3D Render box? Photoshop/Lightroom? Simultaneous multi-tab OCN posting?

Newer hardware is better of course, but more expensive. Take your time and peruse eBay and research everything before you commit. I spend a LOT of time searching and researching, and I've never regretted it. Too bad, anyway.tongue.gif

Hi,

as other said, new is better. BUT depends if it is worthy for you. There was a client in my job and wanted me to build his gaming rig from components he brought. It was nothing smaller than 5820, x99 killer board, *just only 16GB DDR 4 set, 240GB SSD and GTX 1080 (only thing I was bit jelaous I do not have it, and will not have it).

It was fancy stuff, but considering price of x58+5650+24GBs of Crucial with impressive timings, I am still like only on half price of 5820 CPU here, and that was for more ram, very good cpu and good board ( thought better cooling would be welcome). If I decide to buy R480 or 1060 I will be little bit more for 5820, but for whole base of system.

So the budget is the thing. Nothing will be bad. And if you are not computing for living (even if you are) old platform is pretty fine by its horsepower. smile.gif

Again, neither of those options are great if you want the best value for multithreading. Just for two low end v4 Xeons you may be looking at $800-1000 unless you get Engineering Samples. You could build an entire dual E5-2670 for less than just the Xeon v4's.

As far as dual 1366 goes, you'll may have to spend quite a bit to get 128gb of ram in there. If you want 128gb+ you'll either need a board with 18 memory slots (versus 12) or 16gb sticks in a 12 slot board, the problem is 16gb sticks are still very expensive.

The only problem I see is that if I want to upgrade the RAM in a year or two DDR3 will be more expensive than DDR4.
If I do buy a 2011 v3/v4, I probably will get a 2p board BUT 1 CPU at the moment and get another one later down the line.

I don't think Registered DDR3 is going to go up in price for a few years. A lot of Ivy Xeons are still in use and probably won't be retired for another 1-2 years, then there will be another flood of ddr3 and ivy xeons.

But you could build it to the max specs you think you'll need right now (like 128gb/2670's) and then think about going to 10/12c ivy chips and jumping to 256gb later. You could save a lot of cash that way. The performance difference of DDR4 vs DDR3 is negligible at this point because of the loose timings on most DDR4 sticks.

I'm upgrading my wife's PC tomorrow. She has a i7 920 with a Foxconn Bloodrage x58 and 6 gigs of ram. I was thinking about selling it or getting a Xeon and doing something with it.

It would be a very nice upgrade for you to get a X5650. For rougly $60 it's not like you have much to lose, and the performance is well worth it even if she does not use the extra cores. Even at stock speeds it is faster, plus the turbo bins are higher if i recall correctly.

I got a great deal on a 6700K ($230), is it worth replacing my 4ghz X5650 with Skylake in terms of mixed usage (70% gaming, 30% solidworks)? My original plan was to hold out until Zen/Cannonlake and just stick new GPUs into this whenever needed.
