I posted a few weeks about about building a new comp and was told to wait for SB and see how good they were. So now I'm at the point where I would like to start gathering everything and build it in the next week or two. But could use some advice or pointed to some benchmarks I can use to judge which would be the better build.
Main use will be gaming (3rd 22" 1980 x1200 monitor to be added march 3rd Along with second gtx 570), secondary design and rendering in adobe and blender, last surfing and whatnot
Don't need OS, monitors, keyboard, mouse. Already ordered basic Asus dvd burner and masscool G751 shin-etsu.
Now the part I'm not sure which would be better for me. Since im going with nvidia for the better performance in blender and adobe applications I'm gonna have to add a second video card for tri-screen gaming.
1. Will the Seasonic 760 be enough for overclock on i7 / i5 plus 2 x gtx 570 .
2. would I lose performance going with the i5-2500k and its 8x/8x vs the i7-950 and its 16x/16x PCI lanes .
Parts to be determined. cpu+mb+mem I really like the look of either of the chips+mb very good performance and decent prices.
Oh I like. I hann't seen any x16 x16 for the 1155 socket yet so wasn't sure if I should go back to the i7-950 but if that's the case. I will go ahead and start grabbing all the items and just wait on a socket 1155 motherboard.
Thanks for pointing that out. Guess I should have just kept looking before posting.
