Need your opinion FAST --- sell my i7-980X and buy i7-2600K?? - Page 9

post #81 of 116
I never said that a 2600k wouldnt beat a 980x in real world performance, however the CPU is very unlikely to be the bottleneck in a system with a 980x, so that money would be much better spent on, say, quad GTX 580s?

For those of you economically challenged, he sold his 980x because he plays games, and the 980x doesn't offer any advantage over SB mainstream in this area currently.

He sold now because in a few months time SB x6 and x8 chips will come out on the high end socket.

What that means is, he sold his 980x for more now, because its not replaced by the lowest, and cheapest x6 sandy bridge chip yet. No matter what he does he loses money. THIS way he loses less money. And as a kicker, he gets a nice little boost in gaming, which is what he does.

So far what I see is H.GamersZone is only interested in the opinions that fit his. He's obviously already made up his mind that he wants to downgrade and save money. Anyone telling him to wait for Ivy Bridge is apparently wasting their breath.

I don't really care what you do, it's your money. But asking for advice when you've clearly made up your mind is pointless.

Thats because after x amount of posts he already did it, and now it's become him defending his decision.

Which is why these threads like FS section threads should be able to be closed by the thread creator.

Doesn't matter how many gigs you have.



So..on the other hand you still agree with me selling my 980X? that's all what i wanted to hear
Thanks man, but i don't think i will go for i5-2500K, im high end pc gamer & overclocker.
There is your answer from ur own statement. There is only one high end CPU in the market so far and you already have it. No need to downgrade.

Ok let's start again

- I bought i7-980X, EVGA Classified3, Corsair Dominator-GT 2000MHz 12GB 6x2.
- Prices are: $1000, $370, $466 (TOTAL: $1836)

- Now, i'll sell my i7-980X for $820, my EVGA Classified3 for $330, my Corsair 12GB for $430.
After selling all of them, i have now a total of $1580 (i lost $256)

- Now, i bought i7-2600K for $340, Asus Maximus IV for $330, Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 8GB 4x2 C8 for $137 (TOTAL: $807)
I have $773 left.

- Now after 6 months or so, LGA2011 is finally released, let's say it's going to be $1000, and a high-end motherboard $400, and an 8GB of quad channel 1600-2000MHz memory (2GBx4) let's say $360.
Now im going to sell my i7-2600K for $280, my Asus Maximus IV for $280, my Corsair Vengeance 8GB for $100.
After selling them, i got $660 + the ones i saved after selling (980X,EVGA E770,Corsair 12GB) $773 (TOTAL: $1433)

- Now, i bought LGA2011 for $1000, mobo for $400, memory for $360 (TOTAL: $1760)
I already have $1433 laying around after selling the LGA1055 stuff, now i just have to pay $327 to get me a nice Ivy Bridge components.

In this case, i only lost $327 instead of selling my LGA1366 stuff after 6 months of use "skipping LGA1055" and going directly to LGA2011 (total lost will be around $690).

I really hope this is enough, im tired of explaining and calculating and writing over and over
Thanks to all of you people, i really appreciate all your replies, and im really sorry if i insulted anyone by mistake.

Im going to sell my LGA1366 and buy LGA1055 and sell it after LGA2011 releases
END OF STORY.

Im tired..going to bed right now, goodbye fellas
Factors your forgetting.. Paypal fees, shipping fees(since your selling TWICE your going to have to pay TWICE, hence the loss). Both are going to hit you at around 100$ and not to try and be mean but who's gonna buy ram for only 30$ off the original price? I'm sorry but 2000mhz is not far from 1600 mhz and I see no reason to get 2000mhz ram for around 250$ more (if I were to pick up kingston hyperx ram for example). I wish you the best of luck with selling everything...

You guys are way too stuck on 1366.

You can be assured SB 1155 outperforms even the 980x in gaming, so please stop acting like his decision lessons the value you've placed on your old systems.

If he tried to sell his 980x after SB x6 and x8 chips came out he would have taken a huge hit on it's resale value, more than any shipping or paypal (gift) fees.

You purchased a 980x and then decide on a cheaper system? if its money youre worried about, sell.

if its the processor youre worried about, keep the 980x.

but if you didnt need all the 12 threads of the 980x why did you buy it?

you know what, who gives a crap what outperforms what, quite frankly I think once Ivy is released he would get more for his i7 then everyones SB who decided to switch because "it was the new thing".

at least 200$ loss in shipping + paypal fees right there, you cannot refute that, and if he thinks hes going to get half of what hes getting for sandy now when he goes to sell for ivy then I must say LOL...

no offence, but when he paid 1k for the cpu its only logical that the resale value will be higher than a $300 cpu. even in 8 months, the 2600k is 30% of the price.
