i would wait for sandy bridge as well.
i didnt wait before getting my parts, another month and i could have had the Crosshair IV and all the extra stuff like AM3 CPU (plus Bulldozer socket support later), DDR3 RAM, etc....

yes, these are my thoughts exactly =)

everything considered i will be waiting until sandy bridge launches to re-evaluate, although SB's release will probably drive i7 9xx cores prices even further down which would only make them better value IMO. it will all depend on the pricepoint of the new socket mobo's and the features they have available (no triple channel ram/less PCIe lanes is at least one reason i would prefer 1366).

No matter which way you look at it, 1155 is still going to be a 'mainstream' option as opposed to the 'enthusiast' 1366 which will have the features i want.

Untill socket 2011 arrives, If your in the position to wait another 8-12 months for it. In my case going out now buying technically a soon to be phased out setup for 1-2K doesn't seem sensible. Id much rather spend my money on a cheaper 1155 SB mobo/cpu combo that will run at 4.5 -5ghz and then move onto an ivy bridge enthusiast rig later next year.

A good 1366 high end mobo/cpu still is very expensive IMO.

Hi. Ender-of-threads here. I will sum up all the information you need right here. Take it from me, I know wink.gif.

1) PSU is super overkill, unless you plan on tri/quad SLI.
2) You don't need the R3E for that. The R3E isn't worthwhile unless you're tri/quad SLI. The R3F is an incredible board, slightly cheaper, and also newer. Unless you really want the bluetooth thing or something.
3) Don't listen to anyone who is trying to tell you that an SSD isn't worth it. They're wrong. SSDs are very much worth it, and belong in every high-end system. Speed is NOT the only HUGE advantage that comes along with SSD.
4) Get faster RAM. 1600 is a good frequency, but without even looking up that memory I can already tell it's slower. (There's a 'CL9' in the model number) Spend a few extra bucks and get a kit with tighter timings, something around the 6-7 range.
5) Wait for Sandy Bridge. By "wait," I mean, "see what happens to the 950 prices after SB is released." If you need the enthusiast line (like me, so I understand that feeling) then wait for Ivy Bridge wink.gif.

You can hold the applause, I know, I know.

Really? As if the thousands of people touting them here every day isn't enough for you?

Let's see.

Faster read/write times.
Faster spin-up times.
Faster access time.
Lower read latency.
No sound at all because of no moving parts.
Last longer because of no moving parts.
Read performance same for all sector because it's solid-state (no moving parts). (read consistency time)
SSDs require a fraction of the power that HDDs do.
Much less likely to fail from shock or any movement (no moving parts).
No need to read sequentially so no need to defrag, ever.
Not susceptible to magnets.
Can be completely erased/formatted.
Smaller in form factor and weight.

I'm sure I'm missing some, this is from the top of my head. Do I need to continue?

Nope, I get the idea. I was genuinely curious as an SSD would be the next upgrade to my sig but I wasn't going to spend $120 just for faster boots. Thank You.
