switch to intel?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi guys, with the upcoming am3+ and im assuming that intel has a replacement for 1366, do you think that it is a good idea to switch to intel? or switch to 1366?

my budget is around £400 and for that i want a mobo and a cpu...

im not one for waiting and after christmas i will want some new stuff, what good combinations can i get for this budget?

may thanks..

for £400 a 1366 board and processor would be out of the question id say. many 1366 boards cost over that on their own, and then there is the ram........

your best bet is to switch to P55 or what for Sandy Bridge to be released soon.

thats about equivilent to 622$usd, if prices over there are similar, this is very easily done. core i7 920=250$, motherboard~another 250$ for mid range. thats 500$ out of 622$
