Hi all, I have an overclocked i7 930 at 4.2 ghz at moment but have been offered a cheap 980x off a mate.
I only really use my pc for gaming is it worth the change in processor?
My monitor is Dell U2711 at 2560 x 1440 .
Will my EK waterblock fit?
Take away the Turbo and you sit with a expensive VW
My point was the OP system is pretty sweet as is and if they got
the money for the 980x then why not go all out?
With water cooling that 980x will SCREAM
That rig even with SandyBridge and all with the 980x
is good for the next five years.
In a year or two sell of the 480s and goto whatever is the hot cards at the time.
I guess it would be 680s if Nvid sticks with standard naming.
still won't perform better than he's current setup. What will make his pc perform better is to put that ssd on a Pci-e card in a raid setup. He won't have use for the 980x unless he's into video editing in a huge way
IMHO The more cores and threads you can run the better no
matter how you use your system.
The OS at the very least will run smoother.
Remember typically there is about 500 threads running at any one time.
