Attempting to hold off for LGA2011, but can't do it! - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I went 920-980x 2 weeks ago. If I had stayed away from OCN, I might have made it.. I cracked. I just couldn't wait for 2011. Bu-wa-happ-ppen,, wuz.

@ OP, go the GPU upgrade if you feel like splashing some cash, as you can take them with you to IB/SB-E

You have a great chip, just OC it a bit more to 3.6-3.8Ghz and you should be an Overkill setup to serve you well enough until Ivy Bridge is out.

And don't worry, you're not the only one who feels like an upgrade itch when they visit OCN, I get that frequently, I was recently itched to buy a 3rd HD6970... Then realized I didn't even need a 2nd HD6970 for gaming, so I'd better stay with 2 rather than 3.
How about you get 2 more monitors and use those babies to their potential!

Keep what you have and just upgrade the video card.

the upcoming launch of BD(AMD) will surely bump prices and will sure turn tables as it is a competitor platform for SB(Intel) you might want to see how it can go head-on with SB and decide from there..OR..wait for LGA2011 which is the path that you should really take from your current X58..either buy a good CPU for the X58 platform you have or if your just gaming and browsing with that machine then its fine..

Another vote to wait, at least on the CPU/Mobo. See what AMD has to offer with Bulldozer or wait for Intel's Ivy Bridge.

What you have now is still good!

Tbh it depends how much cash you have, Socket 2011 may be out in around 6 months or so but how long untill all the niggles and extra revisions are released??. There was lot's of problems with sandybridge after release so realisticly it's going to be 9-12 months before it is worth buying the new lga 2011. I plan on selling my sb setup to pay for my new 2011 rig mid next year.

So if you can afford to switch then do so, but like others have said your rig is already good enough. Unless you can sell off what you have to pay for it then it's not worth it

Wait it out dude - Get the GPU upgrade if you're feeling trigger happy, but wait it out. If you "need" to get more, invest in a sweet watercooling loop and overclock the daylights outta that system, get 4.0+ghz on your processor and the noticable difference between your rig and the proposed upgrades will be pretty much nonexistant. Otherwise if you feel the need for speed, get a nice SSD.

Like everyone has said, you'll be better served by getting a high-end GPU now. Get something like a Radeon HD 6970 or a GTX 570 and be a happy man until Ivy Bridge comes in Q1 2012 or until Q4 2011 if you want Quad-channel memory with LGA 2011.
