Hybrid

I don't really know of anyone except AMD fanboys who are unsure of which way to go here.

BD stinks, in both performance, price, it's complete lack of PCIE 3.0 (so AMD's PCIE 3.0 7000 series cards have to run at 2.1 wth.gif way to not plan ahead AMD) and it's ludicrous power consumption (which will cost you an arm and a leg to run) and we already know how good SB is and it will only get better with IB compatibility.

Pioneerisloud admits that what he says are his opinions only, so if his baseless speculations are wrong you will be left with a dud when you could have bought what we already know to be a stud.

Bottom line is dont waste your time waiting for AMD to fix Bulldozer, get a 2500/2600k and never look back. I held off upgrading all year to see how this thing performs so learn from other peoples mistakes & don't make the same mistake I and many others made waiting for AMD.

Now that you bring out no PCIe along with the high TDP, I'm sure I'm going with SB. Thanks everybody.

I believe Asrock boards support PCIe 3.0.

OP i'd get a sandy bridge or thuban platform if i was you..AsRock z68 extreme4gen3 is a good board and has pci3/sata3 good mosfet cooling..good power phases..etc..oh..and get the highest bandwidth RAM you can..always good to have headroom..with sb you'll want LV RAM (1.5)..so look for that..

I would truly wait a little longer. This guy seems to be getting good results with his 8120.

AMD are still convincing themselves that someday..... someday they will eventually be better than Intel. That goes with the fanboys, too.

Intel is always one, if not, two steps ahead from AMD.

By the time AMD finally fixes these "imaginary" issues, Intel already released the next generation processors, SB-E is just around the corner, not to mention the Ivy Bridge.

I feel bad, really I do . I was thinking of switching to BD for obvious reasons, price and socket compatibility. I was hoping if BD somewhat beats SB then we would see Intel slightly lowering their price tags. I got a feeling it will never happen at least in my lifetime.

I was holding my upgrade from 775 as well, had to see how Bulldozer performed. Not impressed so far. Oh well.
