I have a Phenom II X4 955 right now, and am looking to get an i7. I'm not sure whether to get 1366 or 1155 (Sandy Bridge). I already ordered 8 GB RAM (2x4 GB) so I can't change that. The main reason I want to go for 1366 is PCI-E lanes. which would be better? I'll be gaming and doing video rendering. If I went 1366, it would be i7 950, if I went 1155, it would be 2600k.

Edit: This is now about DRM, I'm not sure which to get anymore because something just doesn't feel right about sandy bridges DRM. Although it'd feel weird to get something slower for the same price \\;.

No contest - i7-2600K

The PCI-E lanes won't matter and the performance difference between x16-x16 and x8-x8 are minimal. The i7-2600K demolishes every other 4 core CPU on the market right now and even gives the 980X gulftown a run for its money as well.

Additionally it even has new instrcutions build in just for video rendering which makes it an even better buy.

1155, x8 lanes are about 3-4% slower than two x16 slots, but if you are that concerned you can always get a board with a nforce chip like the UD7

1155. Because although 1366 is going to be faster and the like chances are that isn't going to be worth the price on 1366.

Its a new platform

1366 is pretty much at the end of its cycle.

hihi, the resale value of 1366 went down the drain.

"The main reason I want to go for 1366 is PCI-E " what for? it will not make any difference.

You can likely get 5 GHz on air with a good quality cooler.

Go for 1155, you will not be disappointed. You can even re-use the ram in your sig rig.

Are you talking about the PCI-E lanes or the CPU, because the i7-2600K is a monster, even rivalling the 980x on more than a few occasions.
