If this helps anyone building a PC for work - get a CPU that has high clocks rather than two cheaper Xeons. I've built a new PC at work (same as the one I have at home) for myself as the old 20-core started pissing me off and the instant I booted up the software - everything was so much smoother and faster! For the best performance all-round I can only recommend extreme chips (5960X and 6950X), the Xeons, although they have more cores and could deliver way more power when rendering 3D (video won't benefit THAT much more over the i7s) - the slow clocks are just a pain to work with in all the other software (Photoshop, 3D packages, game engines, audio, etc). Learn from our mistakes :)
What do you guys think? Should I go ahead and upgrade my DDR3 RAM to 16GB for around $55-60? I probably won't be upgrading my system until later this year/early 2018. Because I may not be able to upgrade until 2018, I'm gonna see what Intel/AMD/Nvidia has to offer then.
Can someone tell me why do I run WoT so poorly? I barely reach the 60fps mark with everything low even windowed on the lowest resoultion possible! Some more demanding games run better, and it is also common for my sound to crack or something like that. Please help me :)
