And for those that keep saying SB beats 1366 and you have one, post up or shut up, simple as that. No pics, no proof.

i'm upgrading from a q9550 to a 2600k. Running SLI gtx 580 i'm getting big time bottleneck. People might think that because you have something 3.6ghz and up (4ghz in my case) doesn't matter how old your cpu is you will still be fine, but is funny how a sli 570 (default speed) are getting hell alot better FPS than my overclock (920/1840/2200) only because they have i7 (3.7ghz and up)

If you have i7 do not upgrade, sandy bridge will be faster and overclock better but probably won't matter since you are not bottlenecking your videocard in any way (since we are mostly gamers), wait for july and upgrade to ivy bridge. In my case i'll take the upgrade now since i definily need to move from DDR 2 to DDR 3 and have a more capable cpu.

Better vote for free title to jean-luc. Give him "Bashing Troll of The Year"

You all try to make him feel bad or something? He took his build for epic price. Wait for sandy for price drops? Local shop sell those for weak and nothing changed with i7 pricing. He'll pull out same or more amount of money for SB. He's happy with his build. Say gratz and stop showing how low is your educational level and manners.

It all depends on the use of the system. I bet that most of the i7 users here don't need all the horsepower anyway.c

You're right. Forget the SB 'cuz P67 (8x/8x CF/SLI) sucks.

Real enthusiast waits for 2011 Socket which is still away.. or buys the high end platform of today instead of mainstream of future.


This, come on guys stop dissing the OP, Its a sick build none the less, if its his own choice to "forget" SB then its his right to.

Three months back you all would off told him what a nice sick build this is and tuned him to overclock the living $hit out of it, now just because he said forget sandy bridge cause he cant wait, most of OCN pulls fanboi on him. . f.f.s. ppl get real, congratulate him on a good choice of hardware.

So what if SB whips Nahalem, thats technology, it gets faster.

As for the 2011 chipset, whoop whoop, we Enthusiasts can just buy that with our current "slow" 1366 chipsets

To the OP, great choice on hardware, it will hold a long while

Flaming here is pointless, get out and smell fresh air.

It completely baffles me. The OP shows us, computer enthusiast, a build and not minutes later some yahoo who is creaming over a new processor tells him he has failed because he did not get the same CPU? Jean-luc, I hope you're a 12 year old kid because that is the only excuse you would have for acting the way you do day in and day out here. Maybe up the meds?

No one likes to hear the money they just spent was "fail of the year." I am getting so confused about what this site is about now. A group of people who help eachother and talk about computers or a place where people are attacked for what CPUs and GPUs they like.

OP, enjoy your new rig. Screw the nerds.
