you will see a bigger difference in things like video editing/rendering, and very cpu intensive + multi threaded apps, most games dont use the extra 2 cores yet... alot dont benefit from quad core yet either
I do not want to upgrade to 2011 socket 3930k because all my pc is water cooled and i just do not have time to do it all over again plus i can find 990x for 600$. 990x at 4.6 Ghz vs 930 4 Ghz. 600Ghz plus i think it will help in every day use like WinRar, converting movies on ipad iphone, games a bit ...
Am i right?
time to sell off the custom water loop bro.
make it a father and son project or something.
tear that puppy down and lets go Ivy or LGA 2011.
(or rebuild water-loop... )
what's the rest of the system, got SSD and running killer GPU's in SLi or CF-X.?
sell your hardware on eBay or turning it into a back-up rig.
selling on eBay or whatever will recoup funds for new build,
LGA 1366 chips still sell like hotcakes..
4 intel SSDs in raid 0, 2 gtx 580 SLI, corsair dominator gt 1600 7-7-7-21, i7-930 4GHz, claro plus sound card, ....... About 6000$ if some body will buy it from me for 4000 i would be happy costume made case
^thats just dumb, first gen i7's we're and are amazing chips, tossing em would be dumb, atleast put it to folding or prime 95'ing
as urban pointed out, his chip already preforms well with chips 2 generations ahead, so it would really be pointless to throw another $800 into a new platform
