i have found a retailer selling a i5-2400.. for $118......i am thinking i might go for that instead of the i5-2500k....and for game with a nice gpu,,,i just don,t see a lot of difference in gaming, and i don,t overclock...maybe do turbo boost....i think the i5-2400 is the way to go, and save a bunch of $ on top of it...going to put it on a asrock gen 3 extreme 3 z68 board... what are your thoughts on that price?
here is the link-
thanks...yea....the performance difference is hardly noticeable...i sort of gathered that by looking on the net last night.....games today are more gpu dependent. wow , sold out at one store , i am trying to get the other store to hold one for me...waiting now on the phone to talk to someone..i thought there would be a rush on it at that price
Fry's is quality retailer and as for the performance look at my last post..
you got a good deal too at $140,,,,mine was $128 out the door,,,i was smart calling in and have one reserved for me.....when i bought it, he said i got the last one...wow....picked up a xfx 6870 too, they had a diamond 7850, but i have heard that some said it was hot when they overclocked due to the poor cooling on it...if they would have had a msi 7850, i would have been weakened and picked it up.......the 6870 should do me okay, since i only game demos just see what they are like...not that much.. i might try a crossfire later maybe, 2 6870s should pack a punch
Quote:how much was the HD 6870.?
it's a killer mid-card..
nice move regardless the maker.
$169, plus tax, a $20 rebate,,,i thought it was a good deal.....the diamond 7850 was $269, and the diamond 7870 was $319 i believe.. seems like video cards have raised in prices...maybe they will decrease later and i will jump on a 7 series ati.......there were a few nvida cards, but for my main rig, ati has a nicer colors on my desktop , i can tell the difference. on my other 2 computers, running gtx 260,s
