Should I return my 1090T for Sandy Bridge? lol..

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a 1090T that just came in from Amazon today... it was kind of an impulse upgrade but now I'm having second thoughts with the release of Sandy Bridge so soon.. but 1090T is realistically, plenty fast for me. But can't help but want the newest/greatest, lol... I paid $200 for the 1090T, I'd have to spend ~double that to upgrade to P67 & i5 2600K... at first thought it's not worth it to me, but at the same time, I'd really love to put a SB under water..

Do you need the upgrade? Well no. But if you want to go ahead.

You aren't going to see any real world gains with SB, and your 6 cores will be better when games start using them and with programs that do use them.

i probably dont need it.. cant help but want it though, money isn't really an issue although i'd rather not waste it

i just hate how "mediocre" phenom II performs compared to i5/i7 clock for clock

If money isn't an issue, get an SR-2 and 2 6 cores.

Just keep what you have.

lol then why did u get a AMD build? remember, clock for clock it doesnt perform as well as the I7's, but price for performance, your not going to beat a AMD build with intel's pricing. Plus, u can overclock your 1090T since its under water to 4.0.

but if u want to get it man, more power to you..don't let us make the decision for you . I know If I had the money, I'd easily sell my stuff and upgrade just because I can..u know.

i got AMD in the first place because i wanted bang-for-buck thinking i dont need anything faster... but that's changed since, im hooked on overclocking now lol
