Is an Intel i7 975 EX worth the money?
Thx for your time :clapping
Im not familiar with overclocking or whatever.
Decided to wait for the i7 960, should be released soon.
Waiting for the Radeon HD5870x2 in meanwhile aswell.
Pros: Hands down this has got to be the single fastest core I have ever tried (Used friend's comp to play Fallout 3 for a day). I don't own one but, really, Intel has outperformed AMD again. It's hard for me to admit such as I use a Phenom II x4 940 CPU. This thing stomps all over my core and degrades it to the point of "If it could make decisions on it's own, the Phenom IIs would be enslaved."
Cons: O.O $999!?!?
Other Thoughts: For those of you who think that OCing a lesser core to the greater cores will solve the performance issue, you're all severely mistaken. I've got the Phenom II in my comp OCed to 3.61ghz and it still doesn't match this thing. If you're a budget gamer and still want top notch performance, go AMD. If you're a gamer who has money and wants the higher performance, go Intel.
Phenom II 965 Black Edition, 3.4ghz - $189
Core i7 975 Extreme Edition Bloomfield, 3.33ghz - $999
NewEgg Review of the i7 975
This review is really helpful. Would you rather spend 1k or 200 on a processor that's only a bit better than the 200 dollar one?
Not at all. Grab the i7 920 for best price:preformance and get a good CPU cooler and overclock. You'll get better preformance and it won't cost you an arm and a leg.
i7 920 would be the most popular processor and you really wouldn't need more than a i5 750 but it's more future proof I guess
no its not worth it get something cheaper
The value depends on the need and the pocket books. I'd say the EX is not needed, but if you are loaded with cash then get whatever you want.
No, I don't believe it is. It's certainly not what you would call a bang-for-the-buck product. I have an i920 @ 4GHz..
