2500K + Better Ram or 2600K? - Page 5

post #41 of 51
I'd get the 2600K and just keep your RAM as long as it's PC-10666. Faster RAM is a waste of money on Sandy Bridge. 8GB of PC-10666 is better than 4GB of ultra expensive RAM.

This is what I have.

Think I am going to go for the Pro I really dont know why you would need 2 eithernet connections and there is USB 3.0 on the back of the board anyways.

2600K chips have more cache and overclock much better on average. More threads are better even if they are virtual.

Nope. Not correct.

More threads isnt always better. Please dont say that they are.


Also, boards are overrated for SB too. There's no need to splurge for a crazy omg board. OCing is more dependent on the cpu rather than the mobo. Most mobo will perform the same.

I think the Pro + 2600K is a great choice together with the RAM you have.

Your RAM can already run 7-7-7-20 timings

Your RAM is fine. You already own it. If you were buying new RAM already anyway, then clearly you'd want to buy some good RAM for it.

But I'd vote for the Asus P8P67 Pro out of the options you've listed. I love mine, its treated me very well.

And I also agree with most of the others here. There's no reason to get anything more than a 2500k for just gaming. Even at bone stock...it doesn't hold me back in any game.

Got the one from Segovax? Awesome.

And you won't need advice for 4.5GHz, that's child's play. You need to be thinking 5.0GHz+ or bust.
