Post i7-2600K
Would someone please talk about how bad ass these CPU's are so I'll feel better about buying one? Even if you have to lie.
I need closure.

Wait till the x79 mate, I dont think they are worth the upgrade if these newer ones are anything to go by.... Besides if they arent that good, you could maybe get lucky and pick a Sandy Bridge up cheaper :)

Could you delete that and say something more positive?

If something is worth waiting for then I'd do that.. I think the Sandy Bridge currently out is just a teaser of whats to come, but we'll see :) The i7 is gonna be great for the moment :)

What's not to like about 5GHz, 4 cores, 8 threads?

So is the Sandy Bridge a good gaming cpu? I read alot of people brag about how it's known for it's video encoding and such.

2500K is more geared towards gaming as games have no use for hyper threading.

I just checked Microcenter.

i5-2500K $179

i7-2600K $279

Why? What would I gain paying $100 more for the 2600? And what would I lose NOT getting it? Please splain. $100 is at stake here.

The $100 is merely for hyperthreading. That is all. If anything, you should be able to get higher clocks without HT.

Dam Phil....just when I had made up my mind you cast doubts on me. ;)

Not that I'm adamant about hitting 5ghz. It's just that knowing it's unobtainable on a 2500K. You DO know we have this benchmarking thingy in here. ;)

Post Re: i7-2600K
Well I'd still go for the 2600K because I'd know or hope that it would be able to hit 5Ghz, I know a guy that has one and his will manage 5.3Ghz on air but wont go any further even under the cold stuff... I would go for the fastest and enjoy it if that's what you want mate :) But dont forget, David will be able to tease you with a few 5Ghz benchies too, so see if you can beat him ;)

What can your 2600k manage at best David? 5ghz isn't bad at all :-)

I thought that might help you decide Comixion :)
