Upgrade to 3570K or 3770K.. Worth It?


Im in USA right now, and I can pick myself up a 3770K or 3750K.

My current rig specs are in my sig.

2600K at 4.6Ghz is what I run 24/7.

Is it worth an upgrade to Ivy Bridge? What gains and what 24//7 clocks am I looking at over the 2600K?
Or should I wait for Haswell and change everything then?

I plan to upgrade my monitor and GPU by the end of the year.

which part of the country you in?? You can always order from softair or pyramid air if you are gonna be there for 10 days or so. Else check out a local sporting goods shop.

Just remember to buy a hard plastic case, and a TSA approved lock with it. And declare it at the time of check in, and in check in luggage only.

Buy a spring type, no trouble of co2 cylinders.

i picked mine up from Frys!! 328 ft per second.

I'm in Chicago. Will be going to Long Island middle of this month, and then returning home, end of May.

I guess I'll order it to NY, if I like something.

No trouble in Indian Customs?

^^ i was surprised, none what so ever. Though i did dismantle the barrel ( just two small screws on either side ). Even if they do, just say its a gift for your nephew or brother, and is not a air pistol. Its an air soft toy.

Get some good plastic pellets with it from there.. The ones in India are really $hitty.

Re: Upgrade to 3570K or 3770K.. Worth It?

nope.. not worth the upgrade from high-end sandy to high-end ivy..
only a minor performance increase.. y do u wnt dat..?? already u r havin 2600K@4.6K
the only thing u get bttr is the HD4000 with dx11 support.. u dnt evn need dat..
It's also not more power efficient and doesn't overclock any better..

Ah, it overclocks plenty well for most of the folks......You can easily get to 4.6G without raising much voltage, but further up increasing the volts, it becomes an issue. And Ivy on 4.6g is almost equal to 4.8-4.9Ghz of SB......And i am not talking from just reading but experience,

Stop typing in CAPS. Caps is the equal of yelling on forums. If you are not aware of forum etiquette. Use normal fonts or else post will be reported/deleted.

Thanks. I'll hold out for Haswell I guess.
