if you want to go with 3470 then dont get z77 chipset
i have seen 20-30fps boost when I had two gtx 280's with q6600 and upgrading to 2500k and z77 chipset. i would suggest saving up more and get unlocked K series itnel cpu as with dual graphics solutions they will get utilized more with high frequency cpu's..
so i could get a slower 2500k and get better performance from my cards?
and is the 2500k an ivy bridge or gen 2 sandy bridge?
i think the 3470 is ivy bridge witch has 3.0 ability
where as sandy dont
and the price is more for the 2500k
thanks decided on the z77 by AS ROCK
gonna stay with my 560 448 x 2 for awhile yet i think, just got the second one two months
ago the price finally got to a point that adding water blocks was feasible
but im hoping for a big jump in performance from my epic bottle necked that
was my q6600, 780i,and ddr2
people have said that SLI 2 and 3 way works better with faster mobo, ram, cpu
of the 3.0 verity.
i know it was a long time ago but i wound up getting a gigabyte 990fxa-ud7, amd fx8350 8x, 32GB beast 1600mhz, 2x120GB ssd in rade0,
2x GTX560TI 448 in sli, 1.5TB seagate back up exturnel, water cooled the cpu, graphics cards single loop w/xspc dual bay res/pump.
costum stormtrooper case to fit water cooling ill post the picks of it soon as i figer out how
