CPU - Performance - which would be the faster PC?
Given that all other factors were (as far as possible) equivalent (amount/ type of RAM, HDD specs, graphics card etc) which PC would give
better gaming performance :
One based on Intel Core -I7-2700K Quad core (3.50 GHz, 8 Mb cache) or
Intel Core - I7-960 Quad Core (3.20GHz, 4.8GTs/8MB Cache)?
Trying to finalize my new desktop gaming PC spec.
Thanks for any comments!
Definately the spec based on i7-2700k
Even if I have no intention to do over-clocking? (just getting the k-series to get BF3 for nowt!)
Even if you have no intention to overclock. Btw post your spec for checking before you order.
the 2700k would win, but you could a save yourself £30 and go for the standard i7 2600, 0.1Ghz speed increase is what you will be getting for your money really.
And yes the 2600k would still beat the 960
