1366 or 1155?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm building a new pc, mostly for music production, and need some advice. I'm leaning towards getting a 980x over the 2600k for the sheer performance (I really do need to utilize every core to it's fullest) but I'm worried building a new 1366 pc is a bad idea, as it's on it's way out.

Would it be smarter to build a 1155 with a 2600k, then upgrade the processor when something more powerful comes out? what's the word on ivy bridge?

Sandy Bridge E and Socket 2011 will be released next tuesday so that is a better platform to go with.

990X and 1366 is a dead platform

People are still looking at LGA 1366 for new setups?

No, but seriously, while I understand the (albeit niche) merit of such a consideration, at this point, wait for LGA 2011 if you're willing to drop that kind of money. For everyone else, there's LGA 1155.

Ivy Bridge will work in 1155 boards so no sense in going 1366

What will the PC be used for? If you just want the best SB-E is out this month I believe and from what I know IB-E will work in socket 2011 boards

Go for the 2600k and get an Ivy bridge/Sandy bridge-e compatible motherboard. You could currently get the 2600k as a deal for 200$ at microcenter. Just use it until the 3930k/3960x come out and then sell them and buy the others. The new processors are going to be better/more efficient than the 980x and will have fully unlocked multipliers (at least the X edition).

The processors you're referring to are for 2 different sockets, 2600k is 1155 with an ivy bridge upgrade path, 3930k/3960x are 2011 with ivy bridge extreme as an upgrade path.

Sandy Bridge E is not compatible with LGA 1155. If you go with LGA 1155 now, you have Ivy Bridge as a future option. For LGA 2011, you get Sandy Bridge E, and Ivy Bridge E later.

Again, LGA 1155 is not Sandy Bridge E compatible.

Thanks for the advice so far guys!

It sounds like I have to chose between Sandy Bridge E and Ivy Bridge for right now, when is Ivy Bridge expected to launch? Any thoughts on how the two will compare?
