Folding is the one thing that makes me regret not getting the i7-2600k, the difference in ppd is pretty huge

It takes me my i5-2500k, my gtx 470, and my 9800gt all folding to get upper 30k ppd.

This coming from the self proclaimed troll.

I'm only responding.

But yea, as it usually does, discussions don't get anywhere with you.

It's clearly not well known (if its even true) that SB chips exceed what is offered on 1366 when it comes to gaming performance. If a $224 chip really is faster than a $1000 chip in gaming then that information needs to be out there and everyone needs to be aware of it so people don't purchase them thinking it was the best option only to found out later it may not have been.
I think 1366 has a gaming advantage with how it handles more than a single GPU right? Or did 1155 finally allow for true 16x16x16x16? But I have to agree that it did seem that SB was clearly ahead of nehalem in gaming with a single GPU from all the benches (guru and *cough* Toms). Outside of that I'd never recommend 1366 for any who isn't being sponsored as an OCer or doesn't have 2k or more for a build.

Somehow I'm kind of glad intel went all monopolistic in the last year as AMD has been providing the sane options for CPUs now. I remember having to pay 250 for a freaking 6700 which my $99 640 easily trumps. And who in their right mind would buy a dual core past the 100 price range? Right now the 2500K is the only thing I see as reasonable from Intel. For the great majority of consumers who game or OC it made nehalem obsolete.

Same here. SB is faster, but not by so much as to warrant the cost in upgrade (new cpu/mobo/ram) whereas you can get FAR more gaming performance by spending the same money to get...oh another GPU or a higher end GPU?!

Not by a HUGE margin or anything, but for the mere fact that you can go past 4.2 on air quite easily, where as most i7-9xx processors need WC to go past 4.2, that fact alone makes them better for single & SLI set ups. ( Not tri-sli of course )

16x 16x VS 8x 8x makes no difference.

Plus, even clock for clock SB is slightly faster too, that has already been established.

For existing 1366 users, the upgrade hassle isn't worth it for the minimal performance gains, but for anyone on 775 or Quad Core AMD setups for example, it is definitely worth it, as the gains will be noticeable.

It's not a shocker that new tech is better than 2 year old tech ( it better be! ) in real world performance there's nothing i7-9xx processors can't handle, even if SB is faster, that doesn't mean your existing computer no longer functions or something.

I think the people who are whining are too dependent on their epeen status, and if it's really that important for you to have the fastest available tech, there are some 1366 users who have sold their CPU/MOBO/RAM for SB rigs, and some have reported that there's not a big difference price wise for switching. Of course, you need to find someone to buy your parts, and you have to be willing to take a loss for what you originally paid ( just stating the obvious ).

To me, it ain't worth the hassle, but for others, it may be.

Personally, I would be disappointed if SB was slower than the 1st Gen i7's. I can't wait to see what the 6-8 core IB processors will perform like, because THAT will be a worthwhile upgrade for 1366 users.

If we had any sort of confirmation that 6-8 core processors would be compatible on 1155, than SB would be worth upgrading to now, but at the moment, everything points to the fact that 6-8 core IB processors will only be available on the 2011 platform and not on 1155, so if you're a 1366 user you're better off waiting for 6-8 core processors for a REAL upgrade where you will actually notice the gains.
EXACTLY.

Both sides are having a crap fest over each other because of epeen. SB owners want to show off their epeen and Nehalem feels their epeen are getting hurt.

Yes SB is faster and to those who can afford to upgrade, all the power to you! And to the 1366 owners, your computer isn't an abacus compared to the new SB, it's still plenty fast for everything and won't even notice in gaming if you have good GPU setup.

Sandy Bridge seems to be cheaper than 1366, at least I thought it was. And no I think the best SB offers is 16x 16x 8x 8x and thats with the NF200 chip, else it's 8x 8x. That performance loss is about 4% I believe, but it is something to factor in.

Actually, the only noticeable difference is @ 5760 x 1200, and even at that, it's very minimal. At all other resolutions, they're pretty much equal.

Yeah, I don't know why you did not go w/ the 2600k, especially since you fold..
