I just ordered my i7 3820,Will i see a noticable differance in gaming and video editing much?I know video editing should be a good improvment but will gaming?Im gaming on a single 7950 but on triple monitors with 16gb of ram.

yes you will see a difference. you are going from a mid level CPU to a high end CPU

Yeah i just wondered if FPS will gain even by like 5-10 fps in say bf3 and stuff.And how much performance gain would i expect in video rendering?

What is u r mobo. because If mobo is slow no performance difference by upgrading processor.

Significant difference. Especially if you use a program that is designed to use Intel's QuickSync technology.

Please ignore the person who said your slow motherboard would result in no performance improvement.

Dude, didn't you hear? If you have a "slow" motherboard, it doesn't matter what processor you have...................Yep, that was pretty much my response too.

Its friday night. I suspect somebody may have had one too many before posting. I'm sure he will see the light tomorrow.

I bloody hope so, or I might just consider petitioning to get him removed... LOL.

Anyway in answer to your question OP.

You will see HUGE gains in video editing performance.
Mediocre gains in games, the more CPU intensive, the higher the gain. So BF3 large Multi-player will run quite a bit better.

Unfortunately you are gaming on 3 monitors with just one card. So the gains may not be enough. i would definitely get another HD7950 for 3 monitors.

i know BF3 is extremely graphics card dependent and you'll probably see no improvement at all

for video rendering i cant give a specific number but ill bet its a huge difference

Did you know that BF3 is multithreaded?

So I am playing Karg Island with 64 players running around. I get 52 FPS average in a game.

OC my CPU considerably and now I get 69FPS average.

Now does THAT make it CPU intensive?

Yeah idk what the hell that guy was talking about the mobo being slow,Ive been building computers for awhile and the mobo has next to nothing to do with cpu performance lol but anyways i figured in video editing just didnt know how much and gaming the more cpu intensive games that run on only 1-2 cores intel will out perform,Like garrysmod...I play that alot but bf3 in multiplayer i know the minimum fps drops will be alot lower...Like instead of dropping to 30 with my 6100 i might only drop to 40-45 with the i7

He might have a point though.

I decided to put it to the test. I took a Cheap motherboard and placed it on the sidewalk and told it to run to the end of the street as fast as it could. To my surprise, it just sat there. Didn't matter what CPU I put in it either. It just wouldn't move.

I can only conclude that motherboard was just too slow.

Valid point,You just cant have a slow motherboard.I mean it just wont run as good as it should.

The diffrence from a 6100 to 3820? well in gpu intesnvivce games pretty much nothing even in cpu intensive games the diffrence will be decent but nothing crazy. however video editing the i7 3820 should stomp

yeah i know alot of benchmarks show the 6100 is like,horrible for gaming but the i5's and i7 crush them in gaming average fps wise,Then in video rendering that will be good,I know at stock speeds in sony vegas a WMV file 1080p is ALMOST a 1:1 ration almost real time.But then once i overclock it it should be damn near real time rendering :)  yayyyyy then i got my 16 gigs of ram :)

Haha i love how you have the amd logo lolololol. you have your 6100 at 4.5ghz? how does it preform though?. and what about going to maybie a 8350? it would be a cheap option

But it would give you you like 2 FPS better performance? Smart...

About $200 in CPU costs factoring in a Motherboard difference the FX6100/200/300 (gosh I hope you mean 6300 as a 6100 is so 16 months ago) and a Mobo will cost you around $450 less than a 3820 and X79 setup. Thats essentially the big difference overall the later represents bad value for money.

The 6100 isn't bad if you can get it near $100. I would rather have the 6100 at that price than the 4300 at its current $129 price point. But I do agree the FX 6300 is the sweet spot right now.

Ive had that 6100 since *** begining of last year,i upgraded to a 3820 but havnt gotten it yet.I had the 6100 clocked at 4.7ghz.

quit relying on a stupid single player benchmark for a multiplayer game. there is no comparison between the two.
