2500K? or upgrade current system to phenom II x6 - Page 4

post #31 of 119

WoW is an extremely CPU based game, which isn't an accurate representation of the gaming market.

Please take your fanboyism somewhere else.

An overclocked i7-2600K would bottleneck 2 GTX580's nevermind 3 so I'm not sure why you have to keep going on about this.

What...? A 4GHz Core i7 950 doesn't bottleneck 2 GTX 580s, so how would a 2600K that is faster clock for clock and goes MUCH higher going to bottleneck 2 GTX 580s let alone 3?

You AMD Fanboys need to get your facts straight.

please provide information of motherboards dying, I'd love to read up on it. Otherwise, quit spreading false information.

People have no idea that you're coming from a 1090T rig and switched over to a 2500K, this is quite a turn around for you.

Now, it's coming across like you're bashing AMD, when all you're doing is presenting information, now you know how we "Intel guys" feel. Don't spend too much energy on it, it gets frustrating after a while.

The AMD guys just don't want to accept the fact that AMD chips are slower, even when you show them this:

Plus, there's plenty of proof in these forums from users who have switched from AMD rigs to Intel rigs, who are now getting higher FPS with the same GPU's, not to mention better overall performance.

x6 is a bit of a fail in games, go for sandybridge or 1366 bro.

I really liked my 1090T, there wasn't anything really horribly wrong it with. And yah I'm not bashing AMD, I'm just saying what it is. To some people its not a big deal, to others it is. To me it was. I wanted the option to go SLI, and I wanted to see a return on the money I invested.

And yes my 1090T was pretty close to my i5-2500k in games like BFBC2, until I turned fraps on and the 1090T was already maxed out with just the gtx 470. Fraps dogged the heck out of my AMD rig, I had problems with it in lesser games like LoL. Not so with my Intel chip, it has power to spare and that was what I was looking for. My AMD rig was a new build, I didn't want a new $230 cpu that was getting dealt its hand by a single lowly gtx 470.

I will never say you can't game on an AMD rig, that is a far cry from the truth... However I will say for the money currently Intel has the upper hand with it's i5-2500k, its low enough in price to be an option for many AMD people, and it's performance is unparalleled by anything AMD has to offer.

Fact check a tad more -- my Sandy Bridge compatible, Gigabyte p67-UD7 uses an NF200 Nvidia chip and gives me dual 16x/16x. Yes, it's an "add-on", but a functional add-on nonetheless.

Also please note sandy bridge boards like mine run 8x 8x, however they provide twice the bandwidth of 1156 x8 x8 which is equal to x58's 16x 16x.
