You need to wait a minimum of 24 hours without a response to bump your post, not 24 minutes.

I would add input myself but my work's proxy blocks imageshack/tinypic. Why it's always better to type it out .

I, too, am in a similar situation and I am considering upgrading. $100 to make the jump from my X6+790X to a 2500K+P8P67.

I have learned, however, that it is almost no improvement in gaming performance and in some cases, it is actually less performance in multi-threaded applications.

Therefore, I would encourage you not to upgrade and instead, wait for Bulldozer or Ivy Bridge/1356/etc.

It's not worth the money over your 965.

Really? I think it should be a pretty good jump all around. I use my system more for video editing and rendering than i do anything else. I play some minecraft and that currently the only pc game i mess with.

Well, you are thinking of going with a 2600K, so you'll at least have 8 threads, but I would be willing to bet you will hardly notice the difference. Is your 965 even overclocked?

The 2600K is still a quad-core (albeit a very fast one). If you are really that hardcore into video editing and rendering, I suppose it will be an upgrade. However, for $600, I wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole.

You would be much better served by waiting for the new 8-core CPU's that will begin hitting the market in April (for Bulldozer) and 3rd-4th Quarter (for Ivy Bridge).

well.....thats a head changer possibly.

I have tried OC my 965 but its not able to be pushed much simply due to my ram and mb. ram is only running at 800 and mb is just old as hell 3 years. Only was able to use my 965 with bios update. I feel that my hardware does hold back my 965 a little bit though. Any OC are very unstable.

In which case you really don't need to upgrade. The Thubans do well at video editing due to having 6 cores, and video editing software can fully use the resources.

If you just want to play around with something new, it's great. But in terms of performance, not worth the money.

At this point, wait for Bulldozer or Ivy Bridge if you've got the patience.

my is only quad core(965).
ofcourse something new is always fun

Im just doubtful that 965 would compare to a 2600k in performance, just trying to better understand that concept.
