Thread Starter 
Does anyone know when a new Intel socket comes out? The day it does is the day I move to Intel.

Pretty sure 775 will be aroubd for a while. Intel rarely changes sockets.

I don't know of any new intel socket....
775 is going to be around for atleast 2 more years , when all quad-core cpu's and E4*** and E6*** are launched, i think they will only change when DDR3 starts being available.

Isnt doubling, your graphics potential worth ->" going Intel" now, not to mention the 1ghz+ oc right off the shelf? If thats not enuf for you to move...you dont need to.

Haha it is enough. Just, I hate upgrading and then a new socket/whatever comes out and i'm stuck with all the money I just spent.

Yeah, it will be a while, they are releasing a new chipset next year specifically for the next quad-cores all on the 775.

Why tie your decision to purchase Intel just to the next socket change? There is no information on what a new socket will bring and defiantly no date on when it would release (almost certainly not within the next 2-3 years), so not like one could state they are holding out for a planned performance increase.

If you want to buy Intel, buy it

Okay. Now, I just need a good mobo for overclocking and stuff. Can I get some help?
post #9 of 10
What CPU are you planning on and what is your goal for the system?

I like the P5B Deluxe personally, great overclocker, easy to use, lots of options, awesome RAID options.

Well, I'm a gamer, so I would like to go for the E6600 *good proc on a budget*. I would first need to sell my current rig cause I would need DDR2 Ram, which will not be cheap.

Edit: Unless they have a mobo that would overclock good and support DDR. Then I would upgrade in the next month.
