Stick with Intel, or make the switch to AMD? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Yes.

Go with sandy bridge. There is a good chance LGA 1155 boards will get ivy bridge. Intel has a predictable cycle when they release products. Intel won't release ivy bridge until jan - march of 2012. The past 2 die shrinks happen around this time. Intel current sandy bridge platforms provide excellent performance for your dollar. AMD can't touch sandy bridge. Crank either the 2500k or 2600k to 4.8 GHz and enjoy.

The Sandy Bridge chip will be faster hands down. If you want to go AMD you need to wait for Bulldozer in a couple months, otherwise you are giving up performance, which doesn't make sense to me.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/287?vs=203

Even the 2500K > 1100T
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/288?vs=203

Heck, the 2600K is even better than my current chip as well.
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/287?vs=100

Plus, the best part about SB is that it can easily do 4.5 - 5 GHZ on AIR, which no AMD chip is currently capable of right now.

I'm not trying to start a flame war here , just posting some facts, that are backed up with TONS of reviews which you can further reference here:

For gaming rigs the 2500K is by far the best bang for buck right now, that is until BD gets released in a few months and we have some benchmarks to reference.

Nope, not at all, I edited my post to clarify, thought you were saying yes, to this question:
So pretending Bulldozer isn't coming soon, are these pretty similar systems?

I realize I need to upgrade motherboard, CPU, and RAM, so i looked at both AMD and Intel and came up with:

The RAM would be the same for both, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145312(Unless there is some compatibility issues)

And then for AMD I chose:

Motherboard

CPU

Intel:

Motherboard

CPU

So pretending Bulldozer isn't coming soon, are these pretty similar systems? Where can I cut corners/spend more? I was just thinking about upgrading, and thought I'd get some opinions...

I suggest u to go with this intel setup,however dont get i7 2600,u cant overclock it at all,I suggest u to get i7 2600k,its only $20 more than i7 2600,these 'k' series cpu has unlocked multiplies & I've seen people even reaching 5ghz with i7 2600k,
for the mobo,
that msi p67 board sounds quite cheap with a i7 2600k,
get something like
asus p8p67 pro ($170)
asus p8p67 evo ($210)
asus p67 sabertooth ($220)
gigabyte p67a ud4 ($200)
hope this helps u

1333 CL9 1.6V!?
DON'T CHOOSE THAT RAM

A 2x4GB (get 2 for 4x4GB) proper 1600 CL9 1.5V KIT would cost much less and be much better

OK, if staying with Intel, and going with what is available now, what about this:

Asus P8P67 Deluxe

2500K

And these RAMS

The board is OOS right now, but has all of the connections I need/want, is supposed to be a better board for OCing, and is overall a really nice looking board.
