I'm looking for a new CPU. I decided to go for an AMD because it is cheaper here in Spain.
I saw the 965 and all the reviews were OK. But I tried to find some for the 750K but it was impossible. There are lots of shops that sell this product, but there isn't any page talking about it. EVEN IN AMD WEBSITE IT DOESN'T EXIST!!!
So I'm very confused about this model, because looking at the specs in the shops I think it is very good, but not finding any info makes me distrust about it. Is there anyone that can help me??
I'd say they are neck and neck, with the 965 BE pulling through a tad in certain programs.
I say take what you fancy. I'd go for the 750K, as it would be good for AMD to get some CPUs sold that are in production. Also, the 750K has a 100W TDP, so your cooler won't have to work as hard/Will allow for more OC-ing headroom.
I would get the 750K. It is known of, but no one knows where to go to own one. What are you planning to do with your new CPU? emilvojnic, just made the comment about the L3 cache. The 965 might be better at gaming and etc. if you plan on going that route.
Don't buy refurbished components. There's a reason it didn't work the first time.
refurbished doesn't mean broken. I have a "refurbished" AV reciever that I have been using for 8+ years, refurbished monitor thats been runnig for 5+, refurbished printer 3+, ect.
some refurbished Items are customer returns where the customer had no clue how to use it, returned it to the store, the store sent it off with the customer's complaint, nothing wrong with it all, but now its "refurbished" because it was used by a moron.
