Closed I7's 960 vs 2600k Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Games Last response: October 13, 2012 8:41 AM in CPUs Share Cuzzin Chizzy May 26, 2012 2:22:10 PM So obviously the 2600k is better than the 960 but is it a HUGE difference? Will games be coming out soon that will not be able to run at max settings on a 960 that would run max on a 2600k?

Suggestion: Try overclocking the i7-960. For reference, my i7-920 is overclocked from 2.66 GHz (stock) to 3.82 GHz. Running at this OC for over two years! No temp problems. Share antonisrsx May 26, 2012 2:52:43 PM no there is not a huge difference. and for gaming the answer is again NO! if you have the 960 it doesnt worth to upgrade to 2600k.

The i7-960 is more than enough for everything out today. You will probably get little to no benefit from a 2600k over the 960.
