    Going for ivy bridge?

    I have both a lenovo running intel core 2 duo and an a8n-sli deluxe with an athlon 64 fx-55, I really wanna know whether it is worth it or not to get the intel ivy bridge cpu.

    Re: Going for ivy bridge?

    YES YES YES

    The i7 3770 3rd Gen Quad Core performs equaly as well as the i7 6 Core 2nd Gen chips and at half the price (319.99 newegg) and power requirements (77 watts). Thats before you overlock them. You will need the 3770K for an unlocked core if you plan to overclock, those are about 30USD more. Also they have PCI Express 3.0 controler built in, so more bandwidth for your graphics cards even if you dont use the built in GPU.

    These chips IMHO are the best bang for the buck and pretty much the fastest thing on the market for desktop users.

    Code:
    Here is the setup I am going for as of current:
    Intel i7-3770 3.4(3.9GHz Turbo) 77watt Quad Core CPU, LGA 1155 Ivy	319.99		N82E16819116502
    ASUS Z77 Sabertooth LGA1155 Mobo				        239.99		N82E16813131821
    16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 1.5v (4x 4GB set)			96.99		N82E16820233143
    Intel BXRTS2011LC Liquid CPU Cooler 				        78.99		N82E16835203006
    Artic Silver Thermal Compound				                9.99		N82E16835100007

    I have a second generation sandy bridge i5, and am happy with it. I don't need more speed for what I do.

    Yea you got a solid system atm. But if the OP is like me, system is starting to show age. The CPU anyways. I got a older 125w Phenom 9850 with 2MB of L2 Cache. Purchased it in 2009.

    Yeah go for it! I've put toegether a newegg wishlist consisting of an ivy bridge. This will be my first Intel build. Currently running a dual core AMD x2 5000+, it has been a good processor for 5 years, still is, but I have been spoiled by the core i5 I use daily at work.
