And as for my choice of 1366 over 1156 ..... I chose for my own reasons. Ive been doing this long enough professionally and personally to know what is what. I have taken a short break (1 year) so I may not be fully up to speed on the latest and greatest but I am no newb either.
That means you didn't have a substantive response. That is, your answer was "meh, bottleneck" when it's fact (and the prevposter had said) that a SATA II bottleneck isn't an issue. You posted an answer, but your answer didn't show any recognition of his point.
@GPU: Good, glad you had an extra one sitting around. Always a nice way to save on parts.
@1366: Okay, that's your personal preference. But it's silly to come on here, solicit advice on a build, and then respond to all warranted questions and suggestions with "You make a good point, but I still want what I want...personal preference."
IMO? You should've gone with an 1156 system. But if you're going to decide every ordered part on personal preference without reasoning against our suggestions, you have to ask yourself: why are you asking for OC members advice in the first place?Edited by beoagate - 11/2/10 at 6:36pm
