I've finally decided to take the plunge and do a complete rebuild of my desktop (currently running a very old, dual-chip x5365/3.0ghz xenon setup)
trying to figure out which processor to by. I'm throwing $5k at the project.
The point of the project is more for the build than for satisfying any pressing need for an upgrade -- I'm sure I can get away with far less, use an i5, etc...
Anyway, which processor is the fastest? I'm a little confused over IBE vs. haswell.
the "best of" on maximum pc lists the 4960x as the best current proessor -- this is ibe, correct?
Is there a haswell processr that is faster? what about the i7=4770k?
This is what I'm getting, btw, so any comments welcome (I based this on the current "ultra" build):
case: corsair 900d
PSU: thermaltake 1220m
Mobo: Asus Rampage Extreme Iv (is this worth the extra $$, or just go with a x79 delux? Am I going to regret taking the plunge now when the ne chipsets come out in a few months?)
Chip: Intel i7-4960x or i7-4770k
cooling: corsair hydro h110i
GPU: 2x evga GTX 780/NZXT G10
