1090t fast enough for 3way sli (gtx570)  

post #1 of 90
Thread Starter 
hi just a quick qeustion i have a pii x2 555 but was thinking of getting the 1090t and oc'ing it to 4ghz for 3way sli but am worried that its not going to be fast enough am i beeing silly or would it be the case that the 1090t would not be good enough for 3 gtx 570"s.I can get a i7 2600k but that mean"s a new mobo to support it + the cheapest board to support 3way sli i would want is the gigabyte p67-ud7 wich is $400 here in australia so what to do stay with amd and upgrade to the 1090t for my 3 gtx 570"s when i get them or wait a bit longer and get the "i7+mobo" wich is $780 for cpu and motherboard any help would be great thnx in advance !!!

you are probably right, the 1090 wont be fast enough.


Regards to the phenoms, if your soul intention is gaming, you could save money by getting the quad core instead of the hexacore. it is essentialy the same minus 2 cores. Your gaming experience will essentialy be the same.

get the i7, the phenom II range is not going to have the oomph to push those beasts of cards.

Get the i5-2500k for gaming for one, Asus has the Revolution board which is cheaper than the Maximus and the UD7.

The Pro board has another x4 lane, though I've yet to see if it would allow Tri - SLI but I may someday, it does run a dedicated physx card flawlessly.

I hope you're upgrading your monitor, also steer clear of reference 570s they have a poor vrm design.

Agreed,though even the i5 2500K will be a bottleneck with Tri-SLI 570's.

To be honest, 2x 570s and a professional monitor will give a much better experience than 3x 570s and a generic 24'' 1080p TN panel. Try and make sure that your monitor is in line with the rest of your rig, it really makes a difference!

You have no idea what you're talking about (typical).

There aren't a lot of games that support more than 4 cores, HT is only going to provide at most a 20% boost in clock cycles over the i5-2500k assuming all 8 threads are maxed out (GL).

The i5-2500k is the best gaming cpu on the market, the i7-2600k retains that performance while adding slight more performance in multi-threaded applications.

Remember the i7 is clocked 100Mhz higher and boosts in turbo mode higher as well. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Produ...1.62.63.64.129

Save the $100 OP and use it towards a better screen.

Lulz,you resort to your typical condescending bashing.
GTX 570's in 3x SLI would obviously bottleneck any consumer CPU.
