Core i5 2500K LGA 1155 179.99
or
Intel Core i5 2400 LGA 1155 149.99
both of these are Sandy Bridge.
However i dont see many socket 1155 CPU.
is a socket 1156 better ?

or what about this chip.
Intel Core i7-950 3.06GHz Boxed 199.99


what socket is better i guess.
I dont want to spend much at all on a chip and board.
Honestly 300 for the combo is my price point.
I will not be overclocking just looking for a solid CPU/board.
I am leaing toward the 2400 but was unsure about the 1155. Is this a old socket ?
is the I7 a far better chip for 199.99 ?
these were all found on microcenter.
please let me know guys this sale is comming to a end soon.

LGA-1155 is actually Intel's newest socket for their value to mainstream desktop processors. LGA-1366 is Intel's high-end and has been for more than two years now.

If you want to spend no more than $300 for MB/CPU, go with either the i5-2400 or i5-2500K. LGA-1366 tend to be more expensive. Caveat, if running SLI/CF configurations, you're pretty much limited to x8/x8 on LGA-1155.

Asus P8P67 Pro, Gigabyte P67A-UD4, MSI P67A-GD65. If you want to step up past $200 then P8P67 Deluxe, Gigabyte P67A-UD5. If you want to go the best and extreme overclock to the max and money don't matter then get Gigabyte P67A-UD7 with NF200 and certified Intel VDR12. Otherwise I choose P8P67 Pro, it has a lot of features and is less than $200. Many people are using this board so you can be sure if you have a problem someone will know what is wrong with it.

But the UD7 is out of reach for most people, at $320 it's not cheap. This is practically enthusiast prices, if you're willing to pay this much it's just much wiser to wait for socket 1366 replacement.
