i5 2500k vs i7 2600k - Page 4

post #31 of 35
Just stumbled upon this and wanted to ask a question as well.

I'm building a new gaming rig and here's what I have so far:

i5 2500k SB
P8P67 (REV 3.1) LGA 1155
Radeon HD 6870

Just wondering if there's any problems that I might have overclocking, heat, or bottleneck?

Wow, Thanks to this wonderfull post, i make up my mind...

Im at Q9450 Processor with 4 GB memory as my description stated... but im building slowly my new riq, which almost was i7 2600k but thanks to this post i will save the extra cost and i will go for the i5 2500k SB which is 100 less in Newegg.com

I just want to say thanks, i usually use my riq for Study, do some work and sometimes when i do have time ( which has become less and less time due work ) gaming...

So ... i never overclocked my riq... so i think is a wiser choice to go with the i5, according to this thread, right? Thanks!!

Right now building

Kingston HyperX 16GB
Motherboard Gigabyte ( havent decide, option 1 option 2 option 3
Intel i5 2500K SB

If any of you, have a idea, let me know.. remember im not looking for overclock...

It depends what you want to do. If your just playing games then 8GB is probably enough but if you want to edit videos etc then the more RAM the better.
