Need some help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I have a question. Im looking at upgrading my other build. I have a i7 920 currently. will a i7 970 show a grest performance. I dont wanna spend all the money in world for thjs. Im gunna get the LGA 2011 when they come out. Is this cpu besides 6 cores actually worth the $599.99, now take into consideration I do not have the greatest overclocking skills (stilk lesrning). Now I appreciate the honesty I just like blowing money. Hope to hear some good thing from you guys.

!(
Thanjs in advance!

Probably not, if you already got an i7-920, get a good air/water cooling system and learn to overclock it.

The 970 probably won't net you much of an increase in performance that you'd even notice and you'd save yourself $600.

Save that for when the new stuff comes out.

Just wait for Bulldozer mate, you will either be glad you did or you will have more money, either way = Win..

Thanks guys, I do have a water cooling system but I'm still learning how to overclock without blue screening.
