If you are sure you won't be upgrading the CPU, then the X58 with a 6-core is the way to go.

I never used the word troll. Childish, yes; troll no.
Hurt my feelings, . I don't think so. But I can tell when I meet an ass hole, and most SB owners meet that criteria. Not all, but most.

Is SB better than a 970? Depends on it's purpose I suppose. For gaming, sure. But for any sort of 3D rendering, raytracing or hardcore number crunching etc., the 970 will dominate SB.

But for most people's purposes, my old 920 is well more than enough. Hell, I think my old x3 720 is more than most people could possibly utilize.

Even though I cannot see how one can generate personal hate on a platform as good as Sandy Bridge, I will recommend you go for FX 8120. The 8120 should use less power than the 970, be sufficient for gaming, and also for your everyday use. The performance should only get better with better software support from Microsoft Windows and Bios Updates. Just make sure you think hard before getting the Crosshair V Formula as it seems to be the cause of bad performance. Plus the FX series is easier to OC than the Intel x58 chips.

so....

Raw Performance with higher perf per core: i7 970
Good enough performance + cheaper + ease of OC + cheaper mobo : FX 8120/FX 8150(loathe the 8150 due to the stupidly high power draw)

sandy bridge 2600k/2500k wait for IB/SB-E.

fail dozer tanked.

if your not going to buy something because someone far away said something about it you would lead an empty life.

go and try a SB 26/25k! i bought my setup by reading reviews looking at benchmarks and optimizing for what i need it to do.

why not do the same? i pretty much guarantee sandy bridge comes out top for what you need.

They are all within eighty bucks of each other.

i really don't understand why you're so upset about this. It's not like he said anything to incite you.

anyway, if i were you, i would actually get a PhII x6 for budget concerns. But since you said that budget is NOT a concern, go with the 970.
