i7 980x or sb 2600k? - New to i7 systems - Page 4

post #31 of 43
Thread Starter 
So what RAM would you wanna run on a 2600k? I was going originally going to go with 12GB 1600 Dominator with the 980x set up. Is it smart to run liquid cooling right from the start when it comes to the 2600k? I was looking into the Asus maximus iv extreme motherboard with 240GB Corsair force 240 ssd and multiple 2T drives (I shoot raw and it takes up tons of space).

Lol so cpu's can rape one another now

Let's say no Software out there will take advantage of 6 cores. Let's say the max is 4. I still have 2 to work with with while my 4 is busy.

I can still Play games while Encoding. WIN!

The 2 cpus are made for different type of work. They both can do the same but not as effective. If you want to play games get the 2500k/2600k. But if you need it for working with multi threaded apps get a 6 core.

.... I'm aware of that...just wanted to see if you knew It's good to explain why to the person who's trying to figure out what to buy.

Dont even waste your time with 6core cpu's especially from intel. Price is way too high and unless your doing video editing and that makes you money stick with the 2500k's or i7 950 etc...Way better price and it overclocks very well.

I usually dont post in this kind of threads. They tend to be flame wars and full of bad advise due to feelings getting hurt. I know what is like to have both cpus and I say for anything other than epeen, work or fold the 2600k is perfect. The money you save can be use in a nice lcd, SSD's or more gpus.

980X is not worth the money since Sandy Bridge came out.
