My friend wants to know if he gets a 3960X in his system using an Asus rampage IV X79 LGA 2011 board, will he get much improvement, details below:
CPU: i7 2700k
GPU: 2 way 580 (Hydro coppers)
MB: Asus maximums iv
RAM: 16 gigs of Corsair vengeance
HDD: 2x Seagate barracudas and a Samsung 128 gig SSD (samsung 830)
I told him it's not worth it but he doesn't believe me, he's not a gamer really more into rendering and photoshop/vid editing. By rendering I mean like Maya and stuff like that. I just want to know if it is worth the crazy 1.2k price tag?
