Keep 1336 or drop it and go to SB i7? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
You aren't getting it, and that's ok.


What he is saying is if he unloads his current rig now he'll get more money for it than he will with IB comes out.

People will look to used SB setups to upgrade to over used 1336 setups I can tell you that right now. Which will devalue his rig a lot.

Hes wondering if he should sell now, grab 1155, then perhaps sell that when IB comes out. I think that would be his best bet. It keeps him on the cutting edge, and it keeps the value of his rig up.

I think holding out for IB and selling then will be my best bet. Less stressful taking everything apart and the like. Then I will just go full big boy and grab an 8 core extreme.

Looking for a few more people's inputs. Should I sell my Mobo and CPU and go to SB or keep it? Also about Ram is there anyway I can use the ram I have now or will that need to go too?
post #15 of 23
definitely keep the current system. You can wait till ivy or even further easily. After all, I'm still trucking along with my good old core 2 duo; Yeah, its like a 25% bottleneck, but your i7 is more than enough. If anything, sli that 580 if you need more performance. Furthermore, the ram you have now is fine, however, if you do plan on upgrading, then you'll want to make sure and bring it down to 1.5 volts and 1333 mhz because you won't want to burn out the integrated cpu memory controller. I've heard some reports that the standard 1.65 volts used on the x58 have burnt out sb chips.

if stable at 1600 mhz and 1.5 volts, of course leave it at that.

I'm going to wait it out personally. You will still be able to get some decent money later on down the road, and there is not much of a noticeable performance gain going to SB.

Since Balla is invetibly here cheering on SB I'll throw my opinion here.... grab a 980x and two more 580's. Just kidding... anyways, I truly don't believe you should upgrade until Ivy Bridge comes out with 22nm and 6/8 cores. I just don't see the benefit and the very small increase in performance (5-10%) is offset by many things including the decrease in performance with multiple gpus, a less mature platform, lack of tri channel ram, etc... Just not enough reason to upgrade unless you really just want something new. If that is the case then I say upgrade tonight!

i would say stick with the 1366.

i have both and for some reason my i7-930 at 4.2GHz feels much faster than my i5-2500k @ 4.5GHz.

And yes they both have SSDs
