Ordered new Sandy build - Whats the performance difference? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I went from a Q6600 3.3 ghz to 2600k (no overclock yet, am about to). Frankly, in windows there is no difference at all. Perhaps unpacking could be a little faster, but I didn't notice. But with black ops and BC2, this processor really shines, where I had lags all over with the Q6600, its now smooooth with the 2600k. That from a Quadcore to Quadcore. I think you will even experience more difference in gaming department.

I know about benchmark results reviews etc, but those are only numbers Bought this all because i read some great reviews, but what i wanted to know is what performance gain i will actually see\\feel when coming from this old e8400 in practice Good to read that even from quad to quad there is a real difference!

Wow you can definitely SLI 480s on an 850 watt power supply and be just fine especially since you chose that XFX unit (SeaSonic platform). If you don't believe me make a post about SLI 480s in the PSU forum and Phaedrus and other PSU gurus will agree.

Other then that I'm not sure about the motherboard because for the most part I usually see people recommend either an Asus board or a Gigabyte board so I'm personally not familiar with that board.

Hard drive wise i would actually switch that Seagate out for a pair of Samsung F3 1tb and RAID 0 them. You will get much faster write speeds for much cheaper.

look at this chart 480 SLI 668w in crysis load , 851w in furmark load and thats at stock speeds ...and imagine adding a 200w overcloked CPU to that

I'll stick to this one 480 then, by the time its getting outdated another singlesolution card will rise up again. Can't really see anything not running decent on a 480 OC'd

first off, your link to the chart is wrong.

2nd of all, it's load TOTAL SYSTEM...so adding 200w for SB is ridiculous as the chart already is TOTAL system.

that psu is a seasonic platform, it will run anything you throw at it. im pretty sure 850 w is an understatement as it can possibly even put out more than the label says.

Thank you. SLI 480s on a quality 850 watt is perfectly fine and that is a quality 850 watt. And I'm assuming that by saying it's an understatement you mean it can do over 850 watts and you are definitely correct. That isn't some POS Diablotek power supply that says 650 but only does 300.

So if i wanted to be on the safe side later on with sli and all, i should get a 1200watter(can't see anything surpass that even in the future). What brands do you guys recommend\\prefer? My current XFX850 psu is a real quiet\\performance king but they dont make 850+ psu's

Safe side of what?? In reality your are spending extra money on the power supply and if you want to get technical slightly more at the outlet (less efficient at that low of a load for a 1200 watt power supply) but that is negligible in reality. IMO just run it till it dies or you decide to go three way SLI in which I would probably recommend the ABS1050 which is a great unit or the Sparkle Gold Class 1250 which was recently on sale.

Overclocking, and better performance clock for clock. It also has 2 new instruction sets built in: AVX and AES.

AVX is going to be built into newer applications and it effectively doubles the flops performance.

AES is just AES hardware decryption. I get 2.1GB/s as apposed to 300MB/s that i got with a Q6600.

I don't know if your motherboard has UEFI but mine boots from first displaying a signal on the monitor to a useable desktop in 20 seconds.
