post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
so im in a little dilemma i really need a new pc and have been going back and forth with alot of things now with sandy bridge announced it makes things that much harder i dont know if i should build a pc based on that or what i was going to do this is my first pc build and im struggling to finalize

is it worth going with sandy bridge? which processor in the lineup should i go for that would be equal to my current layout here?...when will the motherboards and processors be available on sites such as newegg?

any other comments on the build are welcomed

You could get the 2600K. It beats the 950 in most tests according to some of the Sandy Bridge reviews that have been posted. Here's one. http://www.anandtech.com/show/4083/t...i3-2100-tested

so if i go with a p67 board is there integrated graphics on that at as well?..im going to get a separate video card i figure thats better in case i decide to do different stuff later on plus the other boards i think you cant overclock so i might do that as well in the future



if theres integrated graphics on that board do i have to turn it off in some way when using a separate gpu?

The SB release is so close now you may as well just wait and see how good it really is before you decide.

All Sandy Bridge LGA-1155 processors have integrated graphics. The P67 chipset doesn't support it, though, so it's automatically disabled.

This. Wait until we have some real experience with the platform.

What exactly will you be using the new computer for? The 950 and 2600k are hyperthreaded, and offer a lot of grunt you may not need.

If you're looking for top of the line...

Have you considered the 970 or 980x?
