i know the thread is look like joke but look for this
im gonna buy some upgrades for eyefinity setup i guess my card is good but i want better im gonna get HD 5970 4 GB toxic and im gonna buy 3 screens but im not thinking to change my cpu because the 980 x is really so expensive what im thinking to do is buy aftermarket cooler and overclock my 930 to 4.4 GHS to keep up with my toxic card i dont want any bottlenecking any ideas are welcome
For a gaming only setup, the i7 980X is real waste of money.. Actually, no need for an X58 setup also.. A P55 setup with i7 875k as the CPU will do plenty good..
thanks for replying
for me i wont get another cpu i will get ultra chill... cooler and oc my cpu by the way the i7-870k its good cpu its unlocked so you can oc it but its Hyper link ( DMI ) is not good comparing to QPI
Oh sorry.. I presumed your post as asking suggestion for a purchase.. Anyway, i too vote for a no upgrade needed from an i7 930 to an i7 980X.. A healthy overclock on the i7 930 will suffice.. However, i am not sure about your 4.4 GHz plans if you are talking about overclocking on an aircooled setup.. There i7 CPU's are great but 4.4 GHz on the i7 930 seems a little over.. Moreover, it wont be required IMO.. A stable 3.6~3.8 GHz clock reading should be enough..
