Default Re: Which to go with a 2600K or a 3820.

What exactly are you using the rig for?

If it's for gaming you're not going to see any difference in games based on memory unless you go with a 32bit OS or less than 4GB.

OC the CPU to 4+ GHz and unless you're playing at a very low resolution there's no way you're going to be able to tell the difference between a 2500k, 2600k, and 3820.
