Parts for sale

I am upgrading, and will be selling my old board, mobo , memory and video card


Up for grabs are:


1) Intel i7 2600K processor
2) Asus sabertooth P67 MOBO
3) 8 GB ddr3 corsair memory (not sure what type, but I assume the mobo, proc and memory should be sold as one)
4) 1 GTX 970 EVGA Here's a link:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6814487076



I may also be willing to part with 2 corsair 240 GB SSD's but give me a min to contemplate that.


Everything is spoken for!

Sure, here's the new rig:

Mobo:
ASUS Sabertooth Z170
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6813132639
Proc:
i7 6700K
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6819117559
EVGA GTX980
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6814487079
Memory:
16 GB Gskill DDR4
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 6820231884
I may actually swap the memory for something with a high clock but the reviews on the board are fraught with issues on higher speed memory.  I figured Id get something specific then wait for ASUS to update their QVL.

And probably the most important, the m.2 SSD:
Samsung 950 Pro m.2 512 GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a … 12K3U60461

Re: Parts for sale

Ahh nice.  I too went with a Z170.  I was very close to pulling the trigger on the Sabertooth but for some reason that I can't remember now went with a Maximus VIII Hero.  Oh yeah, massive black Friday deal.  I figured they were close in specs, and I didn't reaaaaly need the extra removable shielding.  Maybe it was the onboard sound that was slightly different too?  Well anyway, haven't had any of the problems that some early adopters had with skylake and the z170.  Cheers!

I too grabbed the gskill memory, but I got the Trident Z.  Took a bit of research to find out the slight differences between the two enthusiast lines with Gskill.  But ultimately came down to availablilty.

And yes, I'm really thinking about the m.2 SSD, but my 840 Evo is still doing fine.

Re: Parts for sale

Meh, I went ahead and ordered the 3200 clock version of the memory.  I'll install that one first and if it acts up I'll return it and use the slower memory.

Re: Parts for sale

It's hard to imagine that pc's could get any faster... Still rocking the 2500k and it's still blazing fast

The thing is, yeah it is actually hard for a person to quantify the speed gains in the new processors/memory.  You can run tests, look at the numbers etc, but unless you are doing serious processor intensive work such as folding/crunching/video processing, it's hard to quantify (as a human) whether your game runs 5-10% faster.

For the biggest noticeable performance gain, SSD remains the champ.  That is a very noticeable difference in your day to day computing.

Re: Parts for sale

Yeah, I'm curious how much faster the m2 is over say a Corsair Force GT.  It almost feels like GPU's are at that same point as processors though, where they've plateaued within the past few years

Well, I will probably keep one of my SSD's and I'll run it through a write/read test and we'll see.


I am currently running only 2x 240 GB SSd's (in the sata III 6GB ports) and keep all my flat file stuff (pics, audio) out in cloud storage.

With the 512 GB m.2 I'll basically have the same storage space as I do now but with better performance.  I'm torn about putting the old SSD's in the machine as at this point, they're un-needed.  I will put one in and run some benchmarks though.  I have a couple laptops that could benefit from the old SSDs,

Re: Parts for sale

So, for example, this is my OCZ 240GB SATA6 SSD:

And the M.2:

Re: Parts for sale

Again, does it translate into noticeable speed increases?  Maybe.
