So after years of running AMD stuff I bit the bullet and went  Intel.

I'll let you know how it goes. Parts wont be here until Tuesday so no fun weekend build.

 

 

NEW STATS !!

 

So my stuff showed up today and I got busy slapping it together. I ran Passmark performance test 7.0 before and after and the results were eye opening. 

 

  My AMD quad core 4.0 scored 4664 for the CPU mark. The new I7 rang up at 12,461 almost 3 times better !!

 

 My overall previous with the AMD, was 2345. Intel overall was 3981. Over 50% better.

 

  I also upgraded memory from 16gigs of 1866mhz to 16 gigs of 2400mhz with similar results in improvements

 

old--2479  new--4574

 

I loaded up ark and it seemed to load faster and looked better with more FPS. I'm still running the same 760GTX in SLI with the same drivers. Same SSD etc.

 

  I still have the new SSD to do a fresh install of windows onto as well as further tweaking and dialing in. 

 

    I can't believe the jump was this noticeable even without a benchmark number to compare. Stuff just runs faster and looks better.

Sweet build @Rando, now you need to save your bucks for a awesome video card. 

This is the one I'm waiting for.

Nice!!! You will love it. That rig will be nice and quick! If you need one, totally go for a 1070 or 1080 nvidia card.
