Anyone still loving their i2500k / 560ti SLI combo?

Still on i5-2500k + 570, cpu isn't even overclocked right now. I can see myself buying a 770 in the near future, but the 2500k still seems to be perfectly fine for everything I want to play.

I've got an i5-3470 and a 7770. Pretty much all I need for a couple of years.

I had two 560ti 448's (with an i7 2600k) before the 700's came out, honestly never had an issue at all. Replaced them with two 770's just because, but I tossed them in my wife's PC to do away with the 550ti crap she had.

Be careful some people here think the Nvidia x50's max games. You don't wanna offend them.

I had a 2500k @ 4.4GHz and a 560Ti. It was one of the most stable systems I've ever had, I had almost zero problems with it. Eventually the performance started to drop in newer games, so I sold it to my friend and splurged on a new system.

And since we're kind of on the topic, how long can I get away with using that CPU before it'll start to bottleneck a newer GPU? I was hoping to get a few more years out of it so I don't have to replace the whole system all at once.


High-end Sandy Bridge CPUs should fare very well for at least a few years. Ivy Bridge and especially Haswell are both focused on integrated performance and power saving, so CPU tech hasn't advanced much since 2600K came out. An overclocked 2600K is still overkill for almost all games.


Thanks, that's what I was hoping for. I'll probably wait a few more Intel generations before replacing it then.

I7 950 and crossfire 6850s. Going good but kinda awaiting my next build. Mainly because whenever I do it, I'm probably going to go completely overkill.
