I've been over this in my head for a few weeks now. Actual info escaped me, perhaps it's too early? So here goes: I like my PC's as efficient as usable. So here I'm asking if, for actual gaming, the 1600X is worth it over an OC'd 1500X to 4Ghz. See, the 2 extra cores, are they actually used in games, nowadays? My current 3930K 6 cores didn't get use much past the usual 4. I'd rather have 4 cores 65W and having 4 cores used instead of 6 cores and 95W but yet only 4 cores used. Basically, I'd like a gamig CPU with as low as TDP as possible/reasonable. My 3930k was quite overkill for just gaming... lesson learned. So, any comments, thoughts, general input? Also, be reasonable. I try and keep up, but my PC knowledge is very rusty, even when I bought my 3930k in 2012.
