But I had seen this report already.
I also seen one saying the 2700 would actually be more expensive, and the 2600k would keep its price point but .. who knows if thats true either.

Anyone seen any credible Bulldozer bechmarks?
If they are launching this soon, you would think there would be something about them somewhere.

Remember the pre-launch hype and the final product which became the first AMD Phenom?

Without a doubt this Bulldozer launch has been a long arduous affair, I'm hoping that all the rumors and mystery is soon lifted.

What specific GPU are you using for the new build? I don't think you will need anything close to a 750W unit running a single GPU unless you using a GTX590 or AMD6990.

eVGA GTX 570 Superclocked.

And you are probably right. As I mentioned, my Corsair 650TX is doing a fine job ATM
I may just put the PSU off for the time being though. It truly may be a pointless upgrade ATM.

I myself have even recommend to others with a similar build 650W is plenty, if its a decent PSU.


I was just thing since Im building a new rig, replacing the PSU at that time may be a good idea.
And if replacing, may as well go 1 level up (650-750) to allow a bit of headroom.

I'm sitting here with a very similar machine to yours as I'm holding off until the IB release. I just don't see enough of a performance gain going from these Q9x50's with 12MB of L3 Cache to the new SB setups...at least with what I do with my machine. My Q9550 still feels super fast.

If the PS is less than 3 years old it should service the new rig just fine for another 3 years or so, especially if you've got one of the Corsair models that were manufactured by Seasonic (I think the TX650's were). That assumes, of course, that your actual draw is under 400 watts and you have that 50% overhead.

It is the issue with capacitor aging that you consider. PS's lose output as they get older due to that aging, and get closer to death every day. They lose about 30% on average over 5 years, I've been told.

So if it's fairly new I would not sweat it. I've got a couple of 400W Seasonics here that are almost 10 years old and still going strong. I wouldn't build a new system with one though.

I read somewhere that the new AMD chips will fall well below Sandy Bridge. The article specifically said that they weren't made to compete but to sell. I can see where they're coming from though. AMDs top of the range processors fall short of some of Intel's mid-range processors. If AMD is releasing these new CPU's according to this, I see no reason for them to be any better then Sandy Bridge E or even the current SB.

EDIT: I found this thread on OC.net. You might found it useful in picking a CPU.

Interesting comments.
I knew the SB_E was going to be socket 2011, and for some reason thinking Ivy Bridge would be on a different socket as well.

I didn't realize IB would be socket 1155.

Hmmm... So Im now thinking investing in a nice Z68 board now would be the the better idea.
Simply because I could opt for a i5 2500k now ... and mid year or so next year updragde to IB. Id have a nice MOBO in place to support it ..
or even the i7 2600 and still have a upgrader path sometime later

Hmmm... lots of choices here.


The more I read and investigate though, its looking like a Z68 board now. Unless Bulldozer really shocks us all when it releases, which I do not think will happen sadly.

The only thing that bothers me, is I do ALOT of video encoding. And from what Im seeing, the i7 has a decent advantage there.
Whichever CPU you decide on, this statement would seem to say pick the one with hyperthreading, as this is what is the reason for the advantage here.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
