X6 worth it? - Page 2

post #11 of 34
unless you are encoding video there is no sense getting an x6. No game uses 6 threads, let alone 8 with an i7 so I recommend an i5 build, which is significantly faster clock for clock than K10. 3.8GHz will be enough for any game.

You fail miserably. The Turbo feature allows up to 8x multiplier constant boost, which is equivalent of a 800MHz boost at 100MHz BCLK.

Sit boy, sit.
no one on this website is going to pay $20 less to lose 300-600MHz from their OC

this guy is on a budget lol. not everyone can have the best.

he asked for an ample gaming configuration and i stand behind the 2400.

its definitely better to invest in 955be for gaming coz even with 6 cores the x6 is useless for gaming.....and for even overall purposes it loses most of the benchmarks when compared to an i5 760......if u want something better for gaming from amd u might consider the x4 970 assuming it does not cost as much as the x6......

Building something now that will be relevant in the next 2-3 years is going to be a very hard task. If you can hold out, I would wait a until the SB stuff hits the market and prices settle in.

I'm sorry, but you seem to be a troll. your sig rig has SLI 5970 Woot? it's crossfire. the name AMDHATER, says it all. Unless you are going to bring in proper opinions, please stop posting.

The 1055T is a 2.8ghz clocked X4, if you overclock it a tiny bit to 3.2GHZ, which doesnt need more voltage, it's a X4 955 with 6 cores.

And also, the old core i5s (750,760), are around the same as a X4, and a X6 performs the same as a X4, at slightly lower clocks.

If you had more cash,i whould just wait it out for ivy bridge, but a X6 will serve your means for a while!

Again, why get a core i5 750 which competes with the X4 965 clock for clock, when you get get a X6. a X6 performs when slightly Overclocked as a Core i5 750 with 2 extra cores!

Now, you dont need 6 cores now, but when the new XBOXes come out they will likely have a grappy GPU and a 8-12 core CPU

The current i5 is significantly faster than K10. The new i5 2xxx line I suggested is even faster clock for clock. You may have seen even results when comparing a 2.8GHz i5 to a 3.4GHz Phenom. Bump the clocks so they are equal and you will see the difference.

Mate, it's a not really a big deal. it's not like going from a pentium 4 to a core 2 duo. it's a very subtle difference, and the 2 extras core bring futureproofing. if you wish to argue, please PM me.

I would suggest waiting for Sandy Bridge unless you're stone-set on AMD, in which case, you should probably get the x4. In three years time it's doubtful whether games will support six cores and you could just put the extra $60 into a good cooler, like the Thermaltake Frio or Noctua NH-D14.

It turns out the Noctua NH-D14 costs a lot in America.
