Unless you're planning on rendering 24/7 get 770.

lol you sure will be rendering 24/7 with the quadro since its 10 times slower but u know what, fk it, do it!

also that cpu is way too expensive for its own good, 4930k is the one you want. Once oc'd theres literally no friggin difference but u know what, fk it, do it!

also that psu is kinda weak. So is the cooler.

Out of curiosity ( and because Stabby makes me horny ) i decided to do a comparison between the i7 4960X EXTREME mentioned above and my very own humble hex-core 3930K..

On overview:

The 4960X was released last year and the 3930K wayy back in 2011.

Both use Socket 2011 / X79 motherboards.

The newer 4960X costs double and boasts:

- A massive 0.2 Ghz more Max clock speed

- 15Mb Cache as opposed to the 3930K`s paltry 12Mb

- A pubic hairs-width more memory bandwidth and frequency

- Probably less overclockable due to smaller Lithography ( Stabby? )

So in over two years of rapid technological advancement and mass-production, we have gained 3Mb`s of Cache and 0.2Ghz clock speed - oh and it`ll cost you twice as much for that :)

Cmon Intel, surely we deserve better than that? I understand where the market is and yes, smaller manufacturing size and lower power-consumption are now the priority as opposed to raw computing-power ( the average laptop is probably now fast enough to comfortably perform the majority of everyday tasks from the majority of average users in spit-second time ) - but there`s still a market ( and i`d say a growing market ) for more power.

I am aware we might be looking at seeing an eight-core this year - I haven`t got up to date in the past couple months or so - but the 3930K above from circa 2011 already HAD eight cores - two were shut off and it was sold as a hex-core. So essentially this drawn-out process of global spoonfeeding is really just a business plan to maximise profits.. I understand that also, but it`s taking the biscuit a bit isn`t it Intel?


Sorry for bombarding your thread yossioren113!! Just get the GTX..

you should compare the 4960x to the 3960x and 3930k to 4930k since they are the same price class, between those 2 pairs, the only difference on paper was 100mhz.

As for the overclocking - IB-e actually holds up well since unlike IB they didn't switch to the shitty IHS tim so when overclocked the 4930k pulls a solid ~10% lead on the 3930k thanks to ipc improvements.
