I want to upgrade one of my other systems (MSI P67A-GD53 B3). 3570K and 2500K are the same price. What should I get?
I have a 2500K on my current Z68. Is there any benefit to have Ivy on a Z68 vs P67 or vise versa with Sandy? Since I'll be buying the CPU anyways, I can move the 2500K to the P67 if it works out better that way. I just want two systems more or less identical.
If it's the same price than go for the 3570k. Slightly better performance for the same price. No real big advantages tbh unless u get a 77' board which supports pcie 3.0 but that doesnt matter much as no card saturates pcie 2.0 completely yet so ... ho hum.
Sorry for posting in a closed thread but I didn't want to start a new one with a follow up question.
I went ahead and bought the i5 3570K. Before I decide where to install it, I have 2 motherboards MSI Z68A-GD65 (G3) with i5 2500K, and as in my original post MSI P67A-GD53 (B3). My Z68 is GEN3 so I DO have support for PCI 3.0. Would I benefit from Ivy or will these 2 CPUs perform the same regardless of which board they're on?
Just to clarify, I am not upgrading my CPU "just because" I needed a second CPU anyways and I have an HD 7950, so since I have the option between the 2 CPU's on my main rig, I just want to know if it's worth switching.
