Hello, what is the most difference between cpu i7 2600 vs 2600k? HD graphics 3000 & 2000 when i have a graphic card already?

More about : cpu 2600 2600k

November 25, 2011 9:09:25 AM

2600K has unlocked multiplier so it can be overclocked.

main differences:
2600k has unlocked multiplier and it is over clockable. 2600 is the multiplier-locked version and cannot be overclocked. but both can use turbo boost to increase their clockspeeds depending on workload.
2600k has intel hd 3000 igp, 2600 has hd 2000 igp. hd3000 is slightly better version of hd 2000 with 12 execution units.
2600k doesn't have vt-d support, 2600 has vt-d support.
2600k is usually priced higher than 2600 presumably for the overclockability with the unlocked multiplier.
intel's igp is for entry level usage. for gaming you'll need a discreet gfx card. however if you use the discreet gfx instead of intel's igp you will not be able to use intel's quick sync.

Thanks brothers about lots of information.
In fact, I really don's want to overclock. And I decide to use the 2600 one. So is cpu i7 2600 ok?
By the way, I just got my CPU case as follow. what do you think about it? Thank you:

what's your budget for a gfx card?
the 550ti is not really a good card for it's price.
what psu are you getting?
can you afford something like this:

or

Now, I think I should use i5 2500 cpu with 2 VGA cards XFX ATI RADEON 6770 1GB DDR5 and monitor LED LCD or IPS. How can I connect to the monitor?

Which motherboard I should use?
- Gigabyte GA-H67MA-USB3B3 Intel Mainboard (B3 Stepping)
- or Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Intel Mainboard (B3 Stepping)?
because the price between the 2 boards is about $20, so I can save some $.
Thank you for your help.

z68 motherboards will let you oc the cpu as well as use and oc the igp. the h6x chipsets let you use the igp and oc it but it doesn't let users oc the cpu. z68 boards are usually more feature-rich than h6x boards. if you're looking to use multi gpu configuration, z68 will be better.
you need to connect both monitors from the first card i.e. the card seated in the first pcie 2.0 x16 slot.
what is your mobo budget? the gigabyte mobo you listed is out of newegg's stock so i didn't get it's price. it supports x16+x4 cfx. if you use 2 gfx cards in that configuration you'll lose a sizable amount of performance from the second card (the one on the x4 slot) and as a result your overall performance will suffer. for multi gpu, you should look for at least a motherboard with x8+x8 or x16+x8. usually motherboards that support x16+x8, x8+x8+x8 or x16+16 cost more. besides most gamers should be fine with a dual x8 configuration.
2x 6770's in cfx will give better fps than 1x 6770 but you might get microstuttering during gaming. for dual gpu cfx, you're better off using dual gtx 560s or dual radeon hd 6950s.
here are some of the z68 boards:
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS $209.99
GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $129.99
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $124.99
GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $168.99
GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $149.99
this is the big list from $99 and up.

The problem righ now with the socket he is using is it does not support anything better then 16 or 8x8 in xfire/sli. That is the limitation but expected considering its a budget cpu and thats fine. On most motherboards 2 6950s in xfire will be bottlenecked by the cpu out of the gate with a stock 2500-2600k. He would realisticly want to clock around 4.0 to run a 8x8 6950 setup. And even then the is going to suffer from insane compatability problems with new games and slow support from ATI over the last year. You can almost forget every doing the 3d route in the future.

To keep it clean imo he should stay with a single card as its a better fit all around for the budget socket he is using. Some of the 6950s can be ulocked to the 6970 settings. At this point in time going past this performance segment justifies a 6990 or comparable nvidia offering.

You're back! How did DX10.1 work out for you by the way?

Anyway, I think i should use a single VGA card.
All the parts I get from this website www.centrecom.com.au
Now, I think I should get the VGA card (Gigabyte nVidia GTX560 SC 1GB SuperOverclock Edition, Core Clock: 900 MHz, 256 bit), http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/n56gso-gigabyte-nvi...
Motherboard H67 is from http://www.centrecom.com.au/catalog/h67ma-usb3b3-gigaby....

What do you think about which CPU I should use (i7 2600 (as my estimate is $1700), 2500 or 2500K (as my estimate is $1557)?) and which motherboard?
