This is exactly what I am waiting for. Hoping sata 6gb/s performance has gotten a lot better!!!

This is pretty much a perfect comparison to my cpu/mobo (well close enough anyways)

Sin do you know yet exactly when you can release it?

What?! I started off my AMD a month ago with the 1090T and thought I was getting the best bang for the buck... you know what? It turns out the i7 950 is the same price and performs much better. Also, it turns out the SLI doesn't for ***** on AMD boards. If you want/need the best you buy Intel. If you don't mind taking a performance hit you go with AMD. Just check the benchmarks...

The best bang for your buck in gaming has always been the I5 750. The X6 is only good if you have apps that use all 6 cores. For gaming it's crap

I thought so too. And lol it looks like we both made the same choice. Sticking with intel until AMD shows me a real reason not to.

Yeah, we are all enthusiasts here. Some of us have more money to blow than others. I've learned something about myself lately though. I should just buy the very best available and that way I'll know I'll be happy... this is exactly why I should've bought the 980x Oh well, after I see the 2600K benchies I just might!

Yeah, I would've never bought it but the guy who built my computer swore up and down that the 1090T was almost equal to the 980x for a third of the price. I didn't know any better at the time. Well, now I do...

Most X6 guys on here think the same thing. With the release of SB Amd has nothing that even competes with intel's mainstream. X6 on average will compete with the 2500K until you overclock it past 4.2ghz

You really think so? I guess you can say that if it's a budget gaming machine that you don't want to be future proof. You are not going to get the same performance with 2 high power cards off of a P55 platform as in 580 sli, or even 5870 xfire. I had 2 5870's on a P55 FTW with a 860 and a 750. When I pull those card's out and dropped them in a 1366 board, I got ruffly 30-40% more out of the same 2 cards in gaming.

You can always run 4gigs of ram on a 1366 board in dual channel and get just about the same performance as running triple channel mem.

If your only going to drop 1 ok gpu (gtx460) and never plan on upgrading performance, then I could agree.

You pay about $30-$40 more for a 950 over a 750, you can get a mobo for close to the same prices, unless you want a R3E or UD7. You can get the same 4gig ram kit.

So I look at it as no more than a $100 diff, with the ability to upgrade like crazy later down the road. Adding a 2nd gpu and running sli or xfire for say another $150 in 2 years would be a lot faster then building a whole other budget gaming machine.

You don't have to run triple channel on 1366 for it to surpass P55. I gamed on 1366 for a year, then went to P55 for 3 months and wasn't that happy so see such a hit in performance with the same 2 gpu's. Pulled them and put back in to a 1366 board and was flying again.

My opinion.

My opinion.
760 and 930 are going to pull pretty much the same framerates with each other as long as they're clocked the same. Case in point. I know it's only one games but is a good example.



When it comes to SLI and Xfire with 2 cards X8 vs X16 isn't that much of a gain either.



3 card setups can be changed with the addition of an NF200 P55 mobo but for the money the P55/760 combo is a better option then a 950/X58.

DC vs Tri is a Meh as well. In gaming Tri doesn't really show the added worth. Wish they would show DDR3 2000 in DC because when i had my 760 rig and it was overclocked that machine absolutely FLEW at 4.4Ghz and DDR3 2100.



It all comes down to how much you want to spend.

760/Maximus III/4GB DDR3 2000 - 396
950/EVGA SLI3/6GB DDR3 2000 - 518

Upcoming :

2500K/UD4/4GB DDR3 2000 - 476.90
