My First 1366 Build!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hello again Guys,

I wanted to share with you what i maybe ordering tonight/tomorrow this system bundle from Aria.co.uk

It consists of:

i7 950

Gigabyte GA-X58-USB3 Intel X58 DDR3 Motherboard

6GB Mushkin Silverline 1333MHz 9-9-9-24

(ill be doing the OC'ing myself hopefully depending how much the price will come down if they can quote me without OC'ing)

What do you think of the RAM?

And do you think 2x 470's will go well with theis motherboard considering its 2x x16 slots?

Any suggestions on RAM/Motherboard is welcome

Thanks All

Looks pretty good, 1366 is not dead yet. As for the RAM go for something that is spec'd to run at 1600 Mhz or above. That will help you alot when you start overclocking. A good set would be these G.Skill 6 GB (3x 2gb) sticks
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231335
They have run at timings 7-8-7-24-2N but I've got mine running 6-8-6-20 1N

Yea i kinda agree actually, a few people over on another forum are saying the same things. Benchmarks on anandtech show the i7 2600k performs better, not much but better then the 950. Im just thinking about the dual x16 slots for sli will do me better jsutice than the i7 2600k series.

What your thoughts on that?

for now the i7 950 would be a good choice. LGA 2011, which is replacing 1366 in the enthusiast market, is slated to come out by the end of this year. 1366 is also going to give you a little more overclocking flexibility.

so you can either go 1366 now or wait to the big boys come up later this year. Coming from a Q9450 it might be worth it to wait since most games aren't ultimately CPU bound

The difference between 16x and 8x is something like 2-4 fps, now don't get me wrong I love my 1366 and I like the overclocking process it has. But unless you are encoding or rendering (or benching ) the benefits of HT may be lost on you. If just for gaming and regular use you might want to look at a 2500k and a 1155 system, probably save yousome dough on the MB and RAM.

Well ive sold my Q9450, so i doubt i can wait that long. And if the CPU are top end i doubt i could afford them anyways. From what i get back from the 775 ill put towards a socket and a bit more to get a great upgrade and go from there.

I'm not too sure about UK prices but I would say grab a 2500k and for likely considerably less money you can get a chip that will do 4.8ish on your H50.

Are you just going to be gaming or would you need 8 threads?
post #10 of 19
whether you go 1366 or 1155 it will definitely be a step up from what you are used to. 1155 is a bit cheaper now and if you went i5-2500K you'd save some money as well. Like tats said if you don't do encoding or rendering the 2500K is a good proc to go with
