    Finally After 12 Years I've Moved Over To INTEL

    I decided after all these years of AMD I had to now move and get the best value for my money I sold most of my AMD rig parts my HD5770 1GB card I sold for 55, my board and RAM for 90 and currently my AMD P-II 945 is up for sale on eBay with a starting bid of 55 which has been met and I have a lot of watchers.

    Anyway here's the new build

    INTEL I7 2600K
    HIS HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E Card
    Gigabyte H77-D3H DDR3 Board
    Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB DDR3 1866MHz Dual Channel Kit

    I have saved my Corsair 550w PSU, case. 500GB HDD and optical drive but the I will be adding parts again soon like a 128GB SSD and another (maybe) Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB DDR3 1866MHz Dual Channel Kit. Should arrive tomorrow the 7850 wont till next week as its on pre-order but I'll run some tests and get some numbers when it's done.

    Upgrading is always fun. Hope you enjoy your new rig.

All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    I'm not loyal to any brand by default! I get what's good and in my range.

    Congrats on upgrading though. I'll be building myself a similar system soon.

    People using Ivy are currently stating that it runs hotter and do not recommend overclocking it.

    It does not run hotter by default. And while it is slightly more difficult to overclock, you can achieve 4+GHZ speeds at reasonable voltages with decent temps.

    ~20% increase in cpu power. The integrated graphics got a bigger performance boost.

    And the prices are good, an i5 3450 (3.1GHz) for 143 and the i5 3570k is only 30 more which puts it only 10 more than the i5 2500k

    Is it possibel to play Rage at 60FPS using integrated?

    The 3750K matches up to the 2550K

    The 3770K matches up to the 2700k.

    I doubt it will be anywhere 60fps on rage, but it allows most current games to be played on medium settings at either 1366 X 768 or 1680 X 1050 depending on the game at 30+fps.

    That will probably occur in either the 2013 or 2014 updates.

    Point is, having a computer with integrated graphics (usually laptops) isn't as much of an issue as it used to be.

    Adding some more parts

    Main storage: Crucial RealSDD M4 128GB SSD
    Sec Storage: Seagate 1TB 7,200rpm 64mb Cache HDD
    PSU: Akasa Venom 750w Modualr PSU
    Cooler: Antec Kuhler H20 Liquid Cooler
    Optical: LG DVD-RW

    Still waiting on the 7850 as it's not released on any shop yet but once it's all done I'll take some pics and get some OC benches currently my 8GB ram at max 1866mhz gives me 7.9 in Windows Index my 2600k at stock gives me 7.6. Over my old AMD 945 and 4GB 1066mhz system I gain 2 points over it with the INTEL chip (obviously better performance in apps) and 6 points with faster RAM.
