Intel i7-2600k vs AMD Phenome ii x6 1100T

Im look to run MANY ram intensive programs that utilizes hyperthreading. This is not for gaming. I want your opinion on which CPU can run the most ram intensive programs. Heres my setup for the AMD:

CPU-AMD Phenome 1100T BE X6. This is the best botting cpu by far for the price. 6 cores and overclocked to 4.2ghz=insane performance in multiple bots. $189.99

MB-I chose the MSI890FX. $150.00

PSU-Coolmaster Rs700 700W 69.99

RAM-Corsair Desktop memory kit 16 gigs $130

Hard Drive- Very basic just a 500gig this PC is only for botting $44.99

CPU cooler- Coolmaster hyper N520. $29.99

Case- Coolmaster HAF 922M. Really a superb case for the price. 3x200M fans for great airflow and preasure.$99.99

Graphics card-XFX HD-557. $69.99. Again just your basic card, rs doesnt require a great card.

Mouse and keyboard. $20 bucks.

Decent monitor. $89.99

I use windows 7 home prem. $100.00 (anyone know where I can get the free version lol)

All of this comes to a total of around $985 on Tigerdirect, with rebates it costs exactly $905.00.

This is the build for the Intel:(this was a suggestion)
i7-2600k

=$315 (also stable overclocked to 4.5ghz with hyper212+)

You need a good cooler to run a computer 24/7, the hyper 212+ runs better than ANY of the low end liquid cooled systems. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065=$30

The cool master 922 HAF is good. =$90
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197

Memory, g.skill sniper is arguably the best cheap memory out right now. (2x8) 1333 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231417 =$98

You don't need a 700w power supply for that card, but you do need a good and RELIABLE power supply. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182032 = 59$ it's cheaper, and more a overall better power supply than the coolmaster.

Mobo: Best future proof cheap mobo right now: has usb 3.0 (what ivy bridge/bulldozer will use) and runs duel cards at x8 if someone didn't want to just bot on their computer but also game they could run good video cards in sli/crossfire. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271 = $ 125

500 gb hard drive is more than you need for botting, but you might as well because it's so cheap:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136073= 50$

+ Windows+ video card+ keyboard mouse +monitor = $280

Total=$1047 and you get a much better computer


So what are your thoughts on which build can handle more ram intensive programs?

    The i5-2500K can beat the PII X6 1100T BE in all but 3 benchmarks.

    If you want performance, get the i7. If you want to save money, get the PII.

    But do you think my memory will bottleneck? Or could I possibly even push 24 gigs of ram and still have Cpu?
  3. It depends on what you are doing with your PC. Generally speaking 8GB of RAM is good enough for most people.

    Large amounts of RAM is good if you are working with large Photoshop files, or if you are working on a very large and complex financial model or database. The question is if whatever program(s) you are using can access more than 16GB of RAM.
  4. did you have to post 3 THREADS asking the same question?
  5. and WTH do you mean by botting? setting up a bunch of bots for spamming a bunch of websites??
  6. Weird a mod locked one thread of the 5 now. Probably because that was the only thread that said "illegal."

    Bots to "play" the game not spam.

    Here are benchmarks:

  8. ^Those are all user submitted scores, and if one really looks at all of them, there is quite a lot of inconsistency in the numbers, many of them simply do not make sense.
    There could be huge untold variables in each of these user submissions that greatly effects the outcome of the benchmark.

    For instance, here is another submission that very closely resembles your posting of the Sandy Bridge above, yet the benchmark is hugely different.

    Intel Core i7 2600K (HT OFF) @4.8GHz, RAM 1600MHz 9-9-9-25 GFLOPS:125.3

    That's AVX ...

    edit: download IBT and give it some cranks - make sure you get the right version where you may enable/disable AVX and HT
  10. The i7 2600k will beat the amd phenom x6 1100t in every possible way really.
