vs

2500K ~$230 + Mobo ~$150 if not more = ~$380+

even cheaper if you already use mechanical drives and JUST upgrade SSD for your OS. Also 80GB is being generous as 60GB is sufficient for most people.

I also gave courtesy and didn't pick the 2600K which is the more expensive option

now like i said earlier, unless you're coming from a Core 2 Duo, if you have a quad and are looking to upgrade...CLEARLY getting a SSD is the CHEAPER more noticeable upgrade second to a new video card
Cool, but I already had three SSDs
I had one for the OS, and two in raid0 for games

See sig for SteamMover
How could I think it's the best app ever, if I don't appreciate SSDs

But anyway, I'm not getting into the SSD/SB thing

There's actually nothing to agree with. It's fact that some people have reasons to not have an SSD, not opinion. Whether you agree with their reasons and opinions is a different thing. Not agreeing that an SSD is probably the best upgrade someone could get for a high end system is stupid, I totally agree that SSD's are great, but, saying that people are stupid for having an SB CPU and no SSD, is bordering on madness. I, too, think an SSD would be a great upgrade, but there are multiple reasons why I don't have one and people have different priorities. This is again fact, not opinion.

Anyway, you brought it up yourself, likely to provoke an answer from someone who disagreed with you in that thread. Well, here it is.

Yeah, this thread is not about this subject. But there is no doubt that a high-end computer is no high-end without an SSD. Lol!

As I've said, even a lowly E4300 got super fast with an Intel SSD. The guy using the machine is impressed by it's speed, responsiveness and silence..

If they were ridiculous, you'd be able to argue against them.

It really depends on the situation...

If a person has a high end 775 setup, 9550/9650 on a UD3 or P5Q, with good DDR2 1066 then the resale value is probably 60 - 70% of the cost of a SB build..

If you can sell your P45, C2Q, DDR2 1066 for say 300$, then grab a 2500k, P67, DDR3 1600 for 450 its a $150 upgrade.

Not really breaking the bank considering its a good % faster than the previous setup...

Again its really in what a person uses a system for, and what their preference is...

I love tinkering with new hardware, so I trade around alot. Will probably wait for IB or BD for my next tinker toy....

So they still have that high resell value?

I sold my 775 for
Q9550 - $180 (1.18 VID)
EP45 UD3P - $140 (ebay)
2x2GB OCZ Reaper 1066 - $75
$395

Bought my P55, i5-760 & 2x2GB DDR3 1600 for $360..

So +$30 for me...

Traded the 760 - P55 - 2x2GB DDR3 + $150 for my current CPU - Board - Ram

So I spent $120 going from 775 to 1366, gained 240MHz and have HT on the CPU, have more ram that runs faster... Cant say Im not happy. It beats my old 775 setup in every aspect of PC use.

You can still get close to what I did for the same components. Watch the FS section here or ebay. I have seen high end P45's go for 150 - 170 on ebay.
