Next week im going from a 8700k to a 5900X and Im pretty excited. I havent had an AMD build in forever. The only reason Im switching over is because I got a combo on a 3080 so I figured I might as well use the board :P
My friend bought Kingdom Come, he said it was great. He had waited so long for it. Definitely worth it. Im a sucker for Civ games, and I hope Civ 6 comes out on sale. But i've heard some horrible things about it.
I'll attempt it once I can order all of the items. But thats good information to know. I look forward to seeing how much your temps drop. My chip isnt too much of a great chip and is really volt hungry so ill keep it at stocks speeds until i can delid it and get the paste on there!
Hopefully mine isnt a dud! I havent started the overclocking process yet. Turbo will go up to 4.7 with little to no voltage increase though. Not sure if that means much. Im coming from a 2600k that was pretty decent.
Thats what I would pick. You'll give yourself more head room for anything else you wish to add later on and you can also overclock if you wish to and not worry about anything. You'll be basically buying a unit that you can use later in other units, and not have to worry either.

Relativist: I'm on a Samsung 226BW 22" Old. but I love it. I don't mind using a 22" to me anything bigger, is a bit much... Too much.
DejaWiz: Thanks for the welcome, I'm seeing that waiting for Haswell will be worth my wait and ill just stick my 920 out till the end!
bwang: Thanks for...
Alright, I like the input, thanks for that heads up! I was curious about how big of a performance jump it would really be... Whats the expected performance increase with Haswell going to be looking like? Anywhere you can direct me to some predictions on it? Unless of course they haven't gotten...
Hi everyone I'm new here, I post over on EOCF, and others I've got a few questions. I'm looking to upgrade my i7 920.
Would just upgrading the cpu be better to say, a 970? or going for a newer 3770k or something? I don't do much but game, Office type work and Photoshop/lightroom. Looking...
