SSD or 2600K?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Should I get a 60gb Vertex 2 or a 2600k, I'm doing lots of video/ 3d rendering and I know HT would help, but would the ssd be more worth the money?

You've already got a 2500k, so go SSD.

The SSD will help when loading the larger files you're rendering.

Your current processor is more than enough, go SSD without a doubt.

On a side note, wait for next gen SSDs (it's not far off).

go for SSD , you wont see much difference between your cpu and 2600k, but I am afraid ssd wont really help with converting/rendering, but you will n-joy overall speeds.

There will be a noticeable difference in the 2500k and 2600k when it comes to rendering (or anything that takes advantage of multiple threads).

When it comes to games the difference could be next to nothing (I'm sure there's more info on this though I've never directly searched for it).

I'd say sell the 2500k and get the 2600k. Since you're using the machine for rendering.

I don't understand the SSD rage. So you can restart ~10 seconds faster than me? ..Who restarts? Who actually shuts down their computer? For -my- usage patterns, an SSD does not seem like a wise investment.

Strider: Do access times even have anything to do with rendering? Having 4 extra threads makes a hell of a difference. What can an SSD do for rendering?

It will load programs a heck of a lot quicker...I feel the SSD will show the most improvement over the 2600k since the 2500k is already a beast...

If he never does anything else with the computer expect to render..Then yes the 2600k would be a better choice, however I think the overall performance of the pc will be seen with the SSD.

The 2500k is a beast, but the 2600k is far superior for pure rendering purposes. If he were a gamer, it'd be a no brainer to keep the i5.

How often do you really open programs? Especially the few, small programs you could get on a 60gb SSD? Like I said, for -me- personally, it would be useless. Every little program I use regularly starts instantly anyway, thanks to SuperFetch. Not sure I could benefit from Firefox opening 15 milliseconds quicker, or 10 second faster bootups (which happen less than once a week.)

Just seems like a pointless investment. Anyway, sorry for the digression. We're supposed to be discussing his usage, and for his usage, the 2600k is worth it. ..He could always get both? Lol.
