Question Regarding LGA1366 Price on Motherboards vs SandyBridge Motherboards - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Since you got a great OVERCLOCKABLE processor for $200, which will be comparable slightly slower to the 2600k for over $100 less, and you're on a tight budget, you could go for an open box motherboard P6X58D-E for $170, which is an excellent board with usb 3.0, sata 6GB:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...641R-_-Product

But since you're on a strict budget, you could get away with this for $136:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...226R-_-Product

Get this RAM for $91.99 AR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227365

Heck, I found you even cheaper RAM for $65!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231225

So, if you go with the cheaper mobo, and ram mentioned, that's $400 for the CPU, Mobo, RAM.

I'm not sure how you can put together the rest of the build for $130-$200 though, you still need a case, PSU, Hard drive, GPU.

Do you have any of these components already? Either build will be tough for $600.

Or, are you saying you have $600 on top of what you spent already on the processor? If so, it may be possible, not sure though. Check the OCN marketplace for used parts, there are already great deals out there for the rest of the components that you need. Look here specifically:

Heck, you may even be able to score a cheaper mobo/RAM, etc.

And try to score a used vid card:

I would personally recommend grabbing 1366 parts used off of OCN if you really want to upgrade. I'm sure plenty of people will be ditching their hardware for sandybridge and you can grab a nice deal.

So that right there is $470

Actually, I have already purchase the ram sticks as well. So far, I have spend about $260 bucks after rebates. I am trying to cheap out on the case. Too be honest, I am not really into overclocking my computer component, cause I am a noob and I don't want to break anything

So I have about 340 bucks to spend on the rest computer rig. This is why, I am trying to wait maybe till January 9, 2011 to purchase the motherboards, I am hoping the price for the LGA 1366 motherboard will drop in price. I still have the power supply to buy, I haven't decided on which brand of power supply to buy, I heard corsair was good but I read on these forms that corsair has cheap out by replace with the high end capacitor with low end capacitor, I am thinking about buying a Cougar power supply with japanese capacitor components. Furthermore, I am thinking about cheaping out on the computer case, I probably spend less than about $50 bucks on it. I am not too worry about cooling because I am not overclocking any of my computer components. Anyways, I am not too sure about buying stuff in this form, I have no idea how it works.


[\\/]Paris - I want to do that but I don't know how trustworthy is the second hand purchase.

Why are people replacing their 1366 setups with the 1155 Sandy Bridge setup? It's not the replacement for 1366, so I'd say keep what you have until the true enthusiast replacement comes out. I'm keeping my i7 930 setup until the second revision of the 1366 replacement comes out; whatever socket that may be.

I think this is the cheapest useable case you can get:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129042

Corsair power supplies are excellent, I don't see too many people using Cougars.

What video card do you have in mind?

Good luck with the rest of the build, you may want to save up another couple hundred dollars and build something that will last you longer with better parts.

Just keep buying parts when good deals come along.

That would be Ivy Bridge due out in the 2nd half of 2011, and yea, if you ALREADY have a 1366 a Sandy Bridge build is not an upgrade. But for new builds, it's worth considering.

Since the OP scored a great deal on a 950, he should stick with it, but with this budget, I'm not sure it's possible to build the whole thing on $600.

Thanks for the quick response

I haven't decided on what kind of video card I want, I figure the video cards aren't worth the high investment. I am hoping to get a video card that is about under $100 bucks, I am only building the rig to play starcraft 2 at max settings. When I stated that $600 bucks was my limited, I really mean to hope and spend around that much, if it goes $200 dollars more, I think that I can deal with it, however, I don't want to spend over $1000 dollars. So any recommendation about what type of video card that I should get. I was thinking about the EVGA 460 GTX ( hopefully the one with the lifetime warranty), hence, I am waiting for the price to drop a little more, I don't know when that will be.

The only thing that sucks about building a new computer is the OS system. Now I have to spend over 120 bucks for that. I really dont want to buy it, is there anyway to cheap out on that too?

There's this GTX 460 which is $129 AR:

hmmm, I don't know about the video card, it still seem quite pricey, and the powersupply is 600W, I was hopping something with aleast 750W. =(

Hey, I was trying to work with your $600 budget, remember?

Here are 750w PSU's
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...CE&PageSize=20

For $129 the performance of that Video Card is amazing.

If you want to spend less, go with this 5770
