Sandy bridge.

Why not get it?
Because I do not believe in paying for Lost military R&D funds, this little kiddies is why INTEL is so expensive. . .

!!EDIT!!
I will be using stock fan cooling, as my PC is in a small house with AC on all summer, so ambient temp will be 70 degrees always, plus NZXT has alot of fan slots for me to molest

well, the 2500k can be had on the egg for roughly $50 more. And look at the performance comparison. 2500k wins in literally every single area including power usage, multi-threaded apps, single-threaded apps, and gaming. And not by some small margin. PLUS, thats when at stock. 2500k can easily be put up to 4.5GHz. It may or may not push the stock cooling to its limits by that time, though. Plus, you wouldnt have to change anything else other than your mobo and cpu. and it is WAY more future-proof.

I understand that it may seem like im pushing you to buy a sandy bridge instead. Im just simply putting it out there as a suggestion. The choice is still yours. but, these differences are too big to not take into consideration.

1100T AMD 6x = $200
2600K INTEL 4x = 314 <-- Newegg

Not to mention the Mobos are more expensive, triple channel ram more expensive their label is nothing but priced on failure. . . If they didnt waste all that R&D contract money we wouldnt have to pay so much for their junk.

I pointed out that the 2500k (not 2600k) is only maybe $50 more and faster than the marked 1055T that I compared it against.

yes, the 1100T and 1055T (etc) all have 6 cores. But, the 2500k's 4 cores and new architecture are much more powerful and efficient than the 6 core AMD. Its not the # of cores that make it fast. it's how they are designed and utilized.

Plus, the 2500k is so easy to overclock to over 4.3GHz.

And, the chipsets that the 2500k uses does NOT use tri-channel memory. it uses dual channel.

Yes, the mobos are more expensive. That is without a doubt.

Its only $20 more than the 1100T.

Calling it junk is wrong. There is nothing to justify saying that what they make is junk. The 2500k's price/performance is better than that of the 1100T's.

What I am calling Junk is their produced R&D end results, which clearly are trash in the last 3-5 years as they have been skyrocketing in price on their stuff every since.

Yes, a lot of the money that is put into R&D of nearly every major company is wasted. Of that, i understand where you're coming from.

OFF-TOPIC: I understand quite well considering that i am a part of a small group of young people that has built a working Nuclear Fusion reactor that is probably the cleanest built fusion reactor ever built with a shield that has an attenuation of 9:1 for any type of radiation it can put out. And the only one that is web-enabled and can be transported easily. All done for under $40,000 (I had no part in fundings). We have seen this thing kick out over 500,000 neutrons/second when running ON-CAMERA for Microsoft's "Show Us Your Tech" bit.

Believe me, if we could do that for under $40,000. Than the companies that are putting Billions into research are obviously wasting it on something. So, yes, i know what you are talking about.

Fusion Reactors are thing of the past. . . Gen II of nuclear power plants. . I am putting my money in MSR *(Molten Sand Reactors)* as they are the best formed idea of the Gen III powering solutions. About 300% Safer then any other form of nuclear power *(Mostly because of its smaller scale and footprint)* and still pumps out same rates of power as a Fusion while using the safer process of FISSION and a much safer element of Thorium, which costs almost 50 times more to weaponize then Fusion power plant materials.

I do not support Intel's lost Military R&D quest. . I refuse to pay mark ups for their f**k ups

On that note, I just bought a peicemail Phenom II x4 965 w/ 8GB 1600 DDR3 750W PSU NZXT M59 Case 1TB HD ASUS 890FX Mobo for 450 Shipped. . . Then into that I am dumping either a single 6990 or 2x 6970s

As they were saying what will change you mind about choosing between a 64 or 128gb SSD card?

If I want to have a dual boot OS system, with 3 new games installed in the SSD that won't make it full and run out of space? Cuz games or things that are in our mechanical drives won't be opened fast if they are not recorded in my SSD isn't it?

If not someone that has a 64gb ssd explain me how they use it and maybe I would understand more about it.
