Sig Rig Dead - Your suggestions appreciated

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
As per the title, my current sig rig just went kaput this morning. The motherboard melted two of the ATX 24 pins similar to duke's Classified motherboard.

So yeah, I am curious of OCN's opinion on upcoming platform offerings from both AMD and Intel, specifically Bulldozer and the recently announced X79 chipset. Which would you prefer and why? Yes, I am aware of the capabilities of the 1155 Sandy Bridges, but I am leaning strongly towards one of these newer platforms instead, unless you fine folks can convince me otherwise.

I usually just lurk the forums to decide on build specifications, but this incident has caught me by surprise and right now I'm quite uncertain of which direction to take. Thanks for your help as always! grouphug.gif

Just get another cheap 1366 board for now, then sell it off for BD parts.
