Since you do not want to wait anymore for Bulldozer, and you want to have a system which is good enough to last you another 2-3 years, plus the fact that you are a folder and might be interested in -bigadv (
), I'm going to say that SB is the way to go.
A 2600K + any decent P67 motherboard + Rasa kit = Win.
Oh, I don't have a rasa kit, I got my own custom loop.
And yes, the ppd of SB is seriously calling my name, I get 4-6k ppd on smp with my current proc unlocked and overclocked to the max, and the 2600k is pulling like 30k just on smp i think.
Guys, I might just jump ship.
Going to wait a little bit though, until the bios' are stable and the platform is a little mature. Also, i'm waiting to see if msi will release a gd-80/85 model.
