Pro-est budget build ever? - Page 7

Also with the 955 at the $130-$140 levels and able to OC up to the 970/975, both the latter CPUs are fairly irrelevant. The AMD build would still be the better budgeted/more expandable choice.
Just because you CAN run SLI on it doesn't mean you should. As I said, you'll experience bottlenecks with a GTX 560 Ti SLI and a Phenom II X4/X6. Even if you OC, when you SLI the difference between the 2500K and 1090T will be very apparent. I don't think it's a good idea to buy a cheaper CPU to then get less performance because you can't push the GPUs you bought to max. usage.

Newegg would've also charged tax

Phenom II's on Am2+ is no difference
The only loss of BD on AM3 is power saving features and maybe Turbo Core 2.0, both unimportant to us

Also OP is not interested in SLI

OP if you don't even plan to upgrade to BD in June go with best-available. 2500k on decent mobo would be best-available, though it might be out of your budget
Anything below a 2500k would be impractical due to lack of OC-ing and poor pricing

And you know that how? If he plans on keeping this PC for four years, like he said he did, he'll probably need to get another GTX 560 Ti to keep gaming at max. settings.

If he doesn't want to SLI, he can save $40 by going for a lower-end P67 board.

...Go back a page
he just said he won't be upgrading for a long time. Likely there won't be any need to upgrade from a 560 Ti because it will max most every game at 1080p.

Even more reason to go for the 2500K setup, then. Like I said, you'll save around $40 by getting a non-SLI/CF board.

The same goes for any platform, even AMD
I know boards at around $40 less without 8x-8x CFX that would be perfect for his needs

There are boards at that range such as M4A87TD EVO, M4A79XTD EVO, GA-870A-UD3... all perfect
Actually if I'm not mistaken, with the M4A79XTD EVO at the <$90 range, AMD has the cheapest decent CrossfireX 8x-8x board around.

But then you're still getting much lower performance from the 1090T. I mentioned it as being better that it's $40 cheaper because it brings it closer/to his budget considering the shipping costs.

http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=57990 even though i could make it -30$ with PM if I got them seperate, with bundle I get free shipping on the whole order

That seems pretty fair... NCIX can be pretty tricky and deals like this come around the corner. Here's to hoping the amount saved on shipping was about the same as the amount more you spend on this CPU/board combo.
You better hurry with the purchase by the way - today is Wednesday, which means 1. new sale tonight 2. today's deals will be expiring
