I would sell that card and get a workstation card, save your money on the intel and go amd 6 core.
An i5-2500K is in the same price class as a 1090T/1100T but will out-perform it.
Which a 1090t will cost around 180-190 new now. IDE love tO see u try to find an Intel chip that cheap worth buying.
The budget being proposed here easily has room for the far superior i7-2600K. The i7-2600K costs about 50% more than a 1090T, but returns that investment with an increase in performance that is equal to or exceeding the price difference. On a performance/$ scale, the i7-2600K is actually a better deal than a 1090T right now.
Since ur doing cad the higher amount of cores will almost always trump fewer faster cores.
Conjecture. Assumptions. BS.
My sig rig was just under 1600. With shipping and taxes. I use it mainly for animation and video editing. The 1090t black edition is what I got and it's a breeze to clock it so long as u have a great motherboard.
Defending recent purchase decision that has been trumped by SB.
The muscle you gain from the 6 cores is just amazing, and at probably 1/2 the price of a comparable intel chip.
Have you even seen the prices of the new sandy chips or are you just assuming they are expensive?
I don't think Intels quads are really suited to the workstation anyhow. They're better for gamers. And I think its mainly gamers on here that will try to steer you towards sandy bridge.
unbelievable.... People come to this forum looking for good advice, and we have people just making stuff up based on their gut feelings about stuff.. A real shame.
Just remember, most bench marks out there are done with gaming in mind, so dont rely on those too much.
What about all those benchmarks that are done with real world pro apps and stuff that clearly show the new SBs trumping the thubans?
Just ask around and see all the people using a 200$ 4ghz stable 6 core processor on air. theyll help ya
People are running the SBs at 5GHZ on air
Think I'm an intel fanboy or something? Look at my sig rig. I'm a value oriented computer hardware enthusiast. I'm just calling it how it is here.
