I mainly going to game on it, with 2x7970 or 2xgtx680.. But here i need advice for CPU and MB: Should i take: ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME -=Rev.3.0=- Intel® Core™ i7-2600K Intel® Thermal Solution RTS2011LC for €573,80 (in my country, where i buy it) Or should i go for: ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX AMD FX-8150 (Liquid cooled edition) for €448,90 now i know most of u will say.. GO FOR THE INTEL!!!! but is it really worth that €120,00 more, for gaming. More about : cpu xerb March 25, 2012 8:57:58 PM GO FOR INTEL! For future games it will help (because it is faster) and overall it will most likely last longer. WR2 a c 203 à CPUs a b Ĉ ASUS March 25, 2012 9:01:08 PM Yes. it's worth €120 more. But drop the CPU to i5-2500K and MB to ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3. That should help ease the sting of the extra €120.

Should i take one of these, or should i wait for Ivy bridge. Or idk does AMD has new processors soon?? and when exactly do those new processors come out? asddcv March 26, 2012 8:07:19 AM If I have about €500,00 to spend at mobo, proccesor and cooling. spp85 a b à CPUs May 20, 2012 9:13:39 AM You can go with either one. The future games would be more and more multi-threaded so an AMD FX 8 core CPU is okay for future gaming. But for today's games like Skyrim Intel SB i5/i7 is a clear better choice even if you play at 1080p max settings. kemperkipie May 20, 2012 9:47:40 AM I've already bought something by now Result: Intel Core i7 3770k Corsair H100 Liquid cooling Asus Sabertooth z77 G.Skill 16GB @ 2133 2x Gainward Phantom GTX 680 4gb XFX Black Edition 1050W Works like an angel Can't find your answer ?
