trying to put a workstation together for my girlfriend and can't decide between a 2600x or 2700x. She will be using this for photo editing with a 1440 monitor. any suggestion to help with the decision. I do know that the coolers are different that come stock and not entirely sure if there will be any gains with 8c vs the 6c. Probably no overclocking. Leaning towards the 2600x. Would the 2700x be worth the $100 more?
The prices of 2XXX may drop when the 3xxxx come out. From what I know 8 cores will be better for a workstation , the 2700x cooler is a good cooler , much better than the 2600x. I would however wait for the 3 series .
