that sounds good Cheers and whats the story with dual channal and triple channal memory...

triple seems a bit posh and some circles claim that its just not good enough and i think the max support is 3 by 2gigs or 4 by 3 gigs correct me if i am wrong...
where as dual channal can be taken all the way to the mobo's max(depending on board) 24gigs or so on

the only good time to wait is when you have a release date of something comming out. other than that, you will forever be 'waiting' for the next thing and never get something built.

When i went to build my computer, i was looking at the new i7 920, but saw there was a actual date for the 950 a few months out so i sucked it up and waited for that. was worth it in my books. since then sandy bridge has been released and the next chips are now soon to be out, so if i would of kept waiting i would not have the computer yet.

ps, i wouldnt recommend the sabertooth. had my bad run of that mobo twice and it was not fun.

The most future-proof motherboards (if that's your thing) on the market right now are the Asrock Gen 3 series. They will combined with Ivy bridge (and the next gen of video cards) support PCIe 3.0.

the only thing that keeps me intrested in X79 chipset is that its catagorised as enthusiast class whereas the z68 is mainstream i think?

and the x79 is suppose to be released in 4th quarter of 2011...

but then again there wont be that much choice or variety and reliablity with respect to the compnents such as sabertooth as you saying has hickups and there was another p67 asus motherboard that was called back as there was a problem with sata 3 gig ports

I didn't even think about it either. I had issues with my original i7 build and was forced to upgrade. Ivy bridge is rumored to have up to 37% boost in performance and implements some new features, however, I do agree to not play the waiting game. As a hardware junky I always look at new stuff and what I could get if I waited, but you can waste a lot of time and money between waiting and constantly upgrading. Good to know ivy bridge will hit 1155 as well though. That's great news.

If you have the extra money the i7 with hyperthreading and the extra cores is a thought, but it isnt much better than the 2500k. It is up to you in the long run, and both chips overclock very well. I have mine at 4.5 1.31 vcore and with some changed fans on my build I don't exceed 70 under load. I also have some more overclocking to do when I find the time. I can go higher and I certainly will

Before you buy z68, there are minor feature differences that set it apart from p67. Unless you need those features, p67 has had more time to develop. Just a thought.

Waiting depends really on what the upgrade is.

Personally I wait as long as I can before upgrading because if I didn't I'd be broke...


Going from mmy Q6600 to my i7 930 I found wasn't that much of an upgrade, though, going from an i7 to a sandybridge in raw calculating terms is a large upgrade.


Since you've waited this long I would be inclined to keep waiting for the enthusiast chips since they probably wont be far from release now. Had you asked the same question to me when you had originally considered buying, I would have said go sandy in a heartbeat though.

Either way, you wont go far wrong with Sandybridge, they're good chips and significantly superior to just about everything else on the market.


Also, sorry, but big red writing looks horrific.

I went from a Q9450 to a i7-2600k. That was worth the wait . I didn't need the upgrade even when the 2600K came out, but i prefer to buy a new PC every 3 to 4 years, so i upgraded and it was a fantastic upgrade!

Thanks a lot guys really appreciate it...

Waiting is a never ending game. Also, another thing most people overlook is that when something brand new comes out there is usually problems. Like with the sandy bridge recall, the Asus sabertooth issues, the OCZ vertex firmware, the list goes on...

If you buy something that is not brand spanking new then you are less likely to have headaches since the bugs are usually worked out by then. If not, then at least you have some warning since there will be reports about the issues.
