Its a dumb argument, my subscore is 7.5 and my machine would probably smash anything on this forum. Its a guide only.

lol. I do believe someone has a 3930k on here so you aren't really the ''big cheese'' with only a 2600k.

If you do something massively threaded yes, but show me something in the real world that we do that beats my cheese thats worth the premium cost? $800 less too. Dont forget you have recently told me a 460 and your system is perfectly good, so make sure you're consistent. Suddenly the 2600K looks good. As I knew it always would. Under standard use, at best (bench) 3930k 15% better, real world 2% better. Plus at 4.5 - 5GHz there is no question the 2600K owns. So Mr No-Cheese, back in your box.

And as this directly relates to my situation...

Hardware purchasing is like the stock market, you gotta know when to spend big, and when to opt out.

Finally I haven't even discussed the option of Ivybridge yet, meaning I can sell my 2600K for say 200, spend another 100 and be back on top. Not going to happen on an AMD or pretty much any other platform. Not that I need to actually, however the extra PCIe lanes would be nice. But never seen my 2600K maxed - yet. But I can upgrade, very rare these days.

But yet again mate, we've detracted from this thread. Post a new thread or a message on my PM and we can discuss.

Ahh yes but I didn't make the statement that my PC would ''smash'' anything on this forum. When you say smash, it assumed it means for any PC purpose not just gaming.

If you want to talk just gaming now, a 2500k games just as well as a 2600k, there is zero difference and costs $100 less. So if your main purpose was gaming, you literally flushed $100 down the toilet by buying a 2600k over a 2500k.

OK so you are running 4.5ghz? Is the 3930k not overclockable or something? It was last I checked

Where are you getting the 2600k is $800 less? The 3930k is $600, so it's $300 more than the 2600k. And also, when did this become a bang for the buck argument? You stated that your PC would ''smash'' everything on this forum, and thats simply incorrect. But you always want to shift the conversion in your favor instead of backing up your blanket statement.

87, you need a new motherboard too if you want to upgrade to the 3930K, and those mobos are expensive. Thus the 800 bucks. Whereas I can sell my 2600K for say, 200? and spend another 100 presumably in a few months and have a whole upgrade. This cannot be said for the 3930k system. Secondly the 2600K competes at stock.

the x79 boards are indeed expensive...tho the quad channel ram is sorta tasty...32 gigs of cheap ram...sure, but to spend bout 800 bucks to swap board/cpu and add more ram? i cant really legitimize the cost...1155 is far cheaper...tho is ivy bridge going to be quad channel or dual?

yeah i have to agree, and also in theory the 2600k would be better than the 2500k but in practice, its the same. just a price performance gone wrong
