Hi all

I want to know if the 2500K overclocked @ 4.1Ghz is more faster and efficient than the 2600 at stock speed

Yes on all tasks that can not use the 8 thread capability of the I7! That includes gaming.

OK, for example i just play gameslike MW3, BF3, CRYSIS, WOW, and use applications like video and audio converters, play music, internet, burning music.

In a normal day i play MW3, and my wife see a movie in HD and the same time im using the DVD shrink for back up my DVD's and downloading movies or music with the jdownloader, any of this process use 8 threads?

If you are doing all these things at ones then you will benefit from I7!

my friend getting 2500k gives you even better performance as you as that 2500k 4.1GHZ OC beat the i7 non k version yes it can beat but get a decent cooler to overclock your CPU way too high like 4.6GHz or 4.8GHz.i7 has only 4 extra thread but 2500k competete with it's 4cores.

a 2500k oc @ 4.1 will be faster than both 2600/2600k at stock speeds. However doing all those things youre doing im assuming at some point all at once then rolli's answer is a good direction.

Imo get the i7 2600k and oc it

Sounds like by your detailed 2nd post about the things you're doing currently and the oc speed you suggested in your op you already have a 2500k which anycase is a good choice also.

well, 2600k is much better

look like 2600k is about 15 % better.

yes of course, theres only a 100mhz difference. Sorry i meant a 2500k @ 4.1 vs stock 2600k. I doubt there will by any offical benchies of that, should be obvious anyway =D

Well i have the 2600k i don't count the K because i don't overclock it yet, and i can do all that thing very well, but i was thinking in sale it and get the 2500k for be more closer to get the GTX 580, right now i have the GTX 460 768MB and i need more graphic power, my Mobo is not SLI so i need a single card solution, but i think if really the 8threads help me more than 4 in multitasking, then im gonna keep the i7.

Besides like pro-gamer say, im gonna need a decent cooler for OC, and i just have the stock cooler from intel, and i dont want to OC with that piece of crap cooler, and getting a good cooler means waste more money

Well thanks for the advice you two guys, im gonna stay with the 2600k and in the future i get a good cooler and OC it, maybe a coolermaster Hyper 212+ that is the most cheap cooler that i know i hope will work for the LGA1155

The 212+ does work on LGA1155! A GTX560ti- GTX570 would be a good upgrade from 460 768MB.

lol had a bit of a laugh there, good sence of humour there in your post jenkas ;P

I'd keep the 2600k and save for a new graphics card if it isnt too much of a hassle waiting. Wouldnt get too far selling 2nd hand parts id imagine.

I think you are right because my monitor is 21" @ 1680 x 1050, but i think the GTX 560 Ti is not a big upgrade instead, off course is better than the 460 but not much like the 570, i'll keep that in mind in february when im getting my Graphic card, for the moment the 460 768mb do the job in almost all games, just the CRYSIS 1 and 2 and the BF3 need the upgrade, lol

I already got the buyer and he's offer me what i pay for it new, in my city there are no more places where get it, and i only have 2 weeks with the 2600K

There is very few things that GTX560Ti cant handle at 1680 x 1050 resolution. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_5...


well i have my old Computer, and my plan was, sell it for 360 dollars is a phenom x4 with 4gb ddr2 and 500gb hdd with the gtx 460 and a NZXT zero 2 case, 700W PSU and dvd burner, and from here to february save like140 dollars and get the 580, i don't know if i can wait or sell my old PC and get a 560 Ti or 570, i want to play BF3 @ max settings
