It's common sense to go with the new architecture if it is a new build unless you don't mind completely re-building a new system when that one isn't enough due to the fact that incremental upgrades are out of the window and a new socket would be necessary.



It's a dead end because it is discontinued. There for there is no scope for upgrades in the future unless you invest in a completely new socket.

No one is saying that 1366 offers sub-par performance.

You guys seriously need to brush up on reading comprehension skills.

Unless Your benching and trying to win contests what cant you do with a 1366? I really want to know...
RE READ where did he say that 1366 is not able to do anything???. Where did he say 1366 will have trouble running new games?

Listen fan boi, stop the sarcasm and stop taking offence to all the sb hype. no one is saying 1366 is inferior to anything,
People that are out to buy complete new systems will go for the newest tech, if funds allow, which is sandybridge why would i buy a discontinued socket? because its old not because it cant do what i need it to do.

The fact that it can't utilise newer, more efficient architectures?.....

Take 775 for example. When core 2 duo came out it was a good investment. Then they brought out the Qxxxx then the E7/8xxx so it wasn't a dead socket at the time of core 2 duo because there were future revisions like the E8xxx to upgrade to down the line. However once the iSeries came out 775 became a dead socket. It could still do what the iSeries could but there would be no more newer revisions because all efforts transferred to the iSeries.

No one is saying 1366 is inadequate. Just that it is not a good investment right now.

Why did you buy an i7 when 775 socket CPU's are more than capable of anything an i7 can do and cost less? Because i7 was the newer architecture so you chose to invest, that's why.

Im just saying for a pc gamer y waste the money. Im not a fan boy of anything. i like the newest and best **** but i dont think sandy bridge is a huge step for spending extra money unless ur gonna utilize it. People should assess what they need before just wasting money. Obviously ur computer genius so u should def get sandy bridge u marketing scheme sucka!

I also have a 775 system thats pretty nasty still.

PC gamers would be wasting money on any i7 then. Just get some cheap AMD cpu or an i5 and a beast graphics cards.

I've still got a Q6600 and a DFI DK P35 lying around.

This is the reason I haven't upgraded my CPU achitecture yet. I contrate on upgrading my GPU since my CPU is more than adequate in terms of gaming.
