I have researched myself into confusion...2011 CPU Decision

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been really trying to figure out what to purchase for my workstation. In terms of what I will be doing with the workstation will include web development, video editing in 4K, and other Adobe Creative Cloud products. In terms of budget I could afford the 6950x but the question is how much it would REALLY matter in comparison to the other options out there including last gen Haswell-E.

Any help is greatly appreciated as I am extremely back and forth as to the best use of my funds.

I think it depends on how hard your going to work your system and your budget.

For most people a 5820k will be fine.
The new 10 core cpu will be faster but the time you save may not be worth the extra.

Where I work our 3d designers are using overclocked 5820k.
For drawing that cpu is plenty fast enough.
For renders it's still fast enough and they spend much more time drawing than rendering.

If you need a 10 core monster, you probably know you need it.

Otherwise get a 5820k and upgrade it if it's not fast enough.
