Thinking about going Intel

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
CPU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115072

MoBo : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128460

RAM : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231274

I will be overclocking obviously or I wouldn't be on OCN. I will be using for gaming mainly, no rendering, video editing, etc etc.

I will be replacing the parts in my sig rigs with these so no need for any other parts ( Not sure if I can use my cpu cooler or not, I know it came with brackets for Intel CPUs so will have to check that out).

Will I see a huge jump ( I know I will see some ) in performance between current CPU and the one listed?

My budget is max $400 and would have liked to stay between $300-$350.

I was thinking of going phenom II x 6 but have heard that the SBs are better performers. I know Bulldozer and other cpus are on the horizon but honestly, if you always wait for the next best thing you will never upgrade.

So there you have it, thinking about switching to Intel and this is what I came up with....

Any other suggestions, advice or concerns with different/current parts and or components would be appreciated.


Thanks

looks pretty good
because you are now switching to intel, you can add a 2nd gfx card later on

Will any 1600 RAM suffice or are you talking about the timing as well?

The only overclocking he'll be doing is with a multiplier.

The only reason I picked those ram because I have the exact same pair in my GF's rig with no OC and seem to perform well and also it puts me right under my max budget of $400.
