any further recommendations to change it for a 960 or 970?
post #17 of 26
Well, they can't just switch the processor, they have to switch the motherboard too obv, is there any way you can find out what the mobo is?

Are you sure they are offering you a 970 now? That's a 6 core processor that retails for $900.

Since you can't overclock it, it wouldn't be worth it, IMO.

Would you be daring enough to build the computer yourself?

There are lots of tutorials out there, and you are on OCN afterall for help.

Building a computer is actually not that hard, once you know what you're doing.

That $1400 would be better spent on a Sandy Bridge build with a 2600K + GTX 570, which would be a much more solid build then what you're getting right now.

Of course you'd have to wait, but the way IS worth it, and you can learn how to put the computer together in the mean time, that would be my advice.

Wow, that is overpriced. Anyway, the i7 960 is a bit slower than the 2600 (by ~10%), but because it's LGA 1366 it doesn't have the chipset issue. Your choice, really.

If they are no longer offering the 975X and you can't get the 2600 then just build it yourself and save some cash. While you may have to wait you will be getting a far better machine. Or see if they can place the order how you wanted it but since there is a wait see if they can upgrade the 2600 to the 2600K when the new batch is released?

Companies who sell pre-built rigs don't normally sell the "k" versions.
