Thinking About 1155

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So guys i'm thinking about selling my Evga Classified E760 and Core i7 920 so i can get a Core I7 2600K and some decent Asus Motherboard.

I know i could pretty much go even money wise as far as motherboards are concerned but i will lose some moneys for the CPU.

With the CPU Block that i have, XSPC Rasa, is this block compatible with the 1155 Boards or is there something extra that i need to buy?

I don't mind being on the losing side of money, I only do gaming anyways so upgrading to future 2011 will most likely not even be worth it as far as gaming is concerned, though i could be wrong?

Anyways give me your opinions and thoughts on this. I don't mind going threw the trouble of selling.

It's not worth it if you're just gaming

Why not wait at least a month to see what AMD's Bulldozer has to offer? Your quad core is more than fine at the moment (if i had one I wouldn't upgrade for another 3 years). But you have everything to gain to at least wait and see what AMD's product does, could even lower prices on the 2600k.

I would get almost any of the three top 3 AsRock. I have the Extreme6 but the Extreme4 and Fatl1ty are great mobos. ASUS is very good too but I think the Extreme6 or 4 would be a much better value.

I would go with the Extreme4 and a 2500k for gamer. Buy another graphics card

I would agree and i thought very hard between asus and the asrock p67 boards.

Bang for buck you cannot beat asrock atm, for me i turned to asus for the name and reputation only.

Answering your question, if your 920 does what you need it to do in games then i would wait atleast untill socket 2011 comes out later this year or early next. It would be a good idea to sit with what you have and save for this new socket as it is gona be brutal
