Hi

 

I am planning to buy an i5-6500 build, but I don't have the money to buy the rig yet. I need some time to save up some money. How much things can change to the point you need to alter your planned rig in about 2 months time?

 

Thanks.

"Things" are changing all the time...it's impossible to answer such a general question, IMO, since the nature of life...and computing...is constant change.

 

When it comes to buying anything...it seems to me that the key question should be "What meets the needs/desires that I have today", rather than projecting out into the unknown and unforeseeable.

Should I wait out Intel's Cannonlake? That's 8th gen CPU.

Cannonlake is at most 7.th generation.

 

Skylake is 6th generation. Kaby Lake is same as Skylake so it's only marketing BS that Kaby Lake is 7.th generation. Cannonlake is Kaby Lake made with 10nm process.

 

For now it seems that AMD Ryzen (launch March 2?) will make all LGA115X Intel i3, i5 and i7 CPU's not worth buying. Ryzen seem to be faster or offer much better price/performance ratio (or BOTH), also Ryzen motherboards are much better than LGA115x boards (because less I/O bottlenecks).

Well, AMD didn't release Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 series yet.

 

However Ryzen 7 already makes every LGA2011-3 and top end LGA1151 CPU's not worth buying. Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 will make same for i3 and i5 CPU's.

Since the obvious purpose of this topic...is to solicit all sorts of opinions, fantasies, etc...that makes every comment fair game for criticism, rebuttal, and other logical proceedings.  This does not pave the way for sarcasm, personal attackes, and such.  If you have a point to make...or a statement to render...please do so within the context of the BC Forum Rules...with the intent of providing something requested by the OP that just might be informational in nature.

 

Thanks for understanding :).

I can't see a reason for choosing a 6500 over a 7600K, given the fairly close pricing spread these days, unless the former is on some massive clearance sale/MB combo bundle or something...' IMO, the 7600K is worth the extra mere $35 at today's Amazon pricing ($197 vs. $235), although you will need a cpu heatsink/fan if you opt for the 7600K. (Even if you had to choose a budget board with no OC capabilities, I'd still opt for the 7600K for the extra 600 MHz, at 3.8 GHz vs. 3.2 GHz...)
