EVGA 780i now or GTX 470 now please help - Page 4

post #31 of 49
getting another 470 would slightly give gaming response..although it would be a little bottlenecked..well if you bought the E8400 before it would be a good chip paired with your plan to but another 470..

scrape the board..support for 775 is almost ending..or yet just save the money and wait for nice upgrade again..

I didn't ask to upgrade to sandybridge, nor did I say I wanted to.

I asked something pretty simple and got a bunch of: don't waste your money, go sandybridge.

My Q6600 if it can go to 3.6GHz would be more than enough for me and SLI GTX 470's will match nicely.

So I decided mobo first, card after. Pretty easy answer which only one poster suggested (which is what I was thinking).

So um, wut?



Thanks man. I hope I can do 1.5v at 3.6 GHz. Do note though that I'm running water so 1.55v would be my max vcore



I hope I can be one of the few that can do 400FSB with the 780i and Q6600's


You didn't like any of the suggestions you where getting because you obviously lack computer knowledge. Anyone who knows their stuff is going to tell you the same thing we all told you. Yes your question was 780i or 470, but the answer is neither.



And to this..

Did I not just say that only the Q6600's made around 2007 where the only few to post that high?

We tried; he wants to go 775 and it's ok, it's his rig. @OP, it'll be fine, I'm on 775 and can't complain, enjoy the board, I hope it works out as well as you hope.

That's a bit harsh WD, it's his cash, just because it isn't what we would do doesn't make it awful. There are bigger concerns than how he wants to spend his money. Like planning our own upgrades

Yes WD-40 I must be inept when it comes to computers because I'm sticking with my 775 rig.

I've had the Q6600 in the past and it hit 3.6GHz no problem. Also the previous owner of my chip said he hit 3.6GHz no problem.

I'm very confident my chip will do 400FSB, it's the board that's in question.

Because I don't have an i7 or want sandybridge, it is I that must be the n0_ob here. Lulz

I had an i7 rig, decided to downgrade because I didn't need the power. My rig will be more than fine to play the games I have listed previously.

Not sure what your problem is.

Thanks saltwater. My rig won't be as powerful as some other 775 rigs, nor will it compete with an i7 / sandybridge. And I'm ok with that. I just want my rig to be how I want it, not how others want it.

I had to do a lot more adjustments with voltages to stay stable at 3.6ghz on the 780i and 780i FTW. My 680i was able to hit 3.6ghz without a single manual voltage adjustment. A big let down. I hear the dual core guys had better luck oc'ing on them.

yeah, hence why I wanted a 680i initially but I couldn't find one so I settled on a 780i from EVGA.

Yeah dual core guys hit higher clocks than quad guys

yes this is true the 750i/780i performs better paired with E8x00 series rather than the quaddies..well diving with quaddies does pair with higher voltages on this platform..i saw some post before hitting 4 ghz but with ton loads of voltages plus its watercooled..

Just a little confused by your self contradicting; you state you want to break 20k, but you "supposedly" down grade from and i7 because it has too much power..

But yet..

  • Tuniq Tower (lost of of the screws, damnit)
  • Creative Xtreme Audio
  • LG Flatron 20" 1680x1050
  • 2GB PC2-6400 Patriot 4-4-4-12

To my new, rehash of my rig:
  • Q6600 @ 3.4GHz 1.4v
  • Asus P5k
  • EVGA GTX 470
  • Antec True Power New 750w
  • Cooler Master HAF 932
  • XSPC RX360 Kit
  • Creative Xtreme Audio
  • Acer X263WBI 1920x1200
  • 4 GB Patriot Viper 4-4-4-12 at 2.2v




I never said you where a "nub" because you don't have an i7. I only stated you lacked knowledge of computers because of the quotes above. But at any rate, like others are saying, glad your happy.

Have a hard time believing the vdroop option did anything.
