CPU's will always have a "successor", yet, it doesn't mean that the predecessors aren't a bad buy for some people. I just thought that would be common sense with anything along those lines. Then again, I'm 14, and I still have a ton to learn about computers.

Just my 2 cents.
You're 14 and have a 980x!

*extreme envy*

I'm 16.

I have an i7 930, is there something better/faster than mine, sure there is but before I upgrade to anything I will ask myself...

1. Will it do things my current setup wont?
2. Will I really (not synthetic benchmarks) notice a difference?
3. Can I afford it to upgrade it?
4. Will the wife let me keep my balls if I upgrade it?

3 and 4 are normally the decision winners/makers for me If all 4 are yes I will do it

I am in for this. I considered going to 1155 from my current setup but I don't know if the crossfire loss would be worth it and to try to filter through the Intel CPU forums is a pain.

What do you mean crossfire loss? x8 is hardly a loss compared to x16.

1) Let you say you have a SB computer...? Apart from that, no.

2) Depends on what you do with it. If you're animating, rendering, photoshopping, encoding, or somesort all day, then yes, definitely. If all you do is play Farmville, no. If you're somewhere in between... then yeah, but not a massive one.

3) Again, depends. If all you want is a low-end SB setup, then you're looking at about $2-300. Higher end setups go up from there.

4) Really nobody here can answer that but you.

Exactly.

8x is only about 1-2% slower than 16x.

I'd never go as far to say that Sandy Bridge = Fail, though I'd be willing to say that Sandy Bridge is going to take a serious pause (with the recall) at a pivotal moment when Bulldozer is about to hit the streets..

So what then if Bulldozer out performs Sandy Bridge, would Sandy Bridge be a fail then?

No...

Sandy Bridge, for it's intended purpose WILL SERVE THE MASSES...

If you look at the capabilities of say a Pentium Dual Core vs a Core 2 Duo..

or

A Core 2 Quad vs an i5-750

or

An i7-2600k vs a Phenom II X 4....

You will see that the difference in performance isn't anything to jump out of your chair and say "OMG"!

Now when you compare say the Pentium D vs the i7-980x, then you are talking about a HUGE difference in performance...

It's easy to foresee that, this is nothing to get excited about, Sandy Bridge will STILL be a good chip, MB Problems or not... It's not like the thing cannot be fixed!

All in all though, I think the only thing that will come about over the issue with SB is, Bulldozer will have a larger spotlight! This is not a good thing for Intel, market share wise...

How comical.

It really just boils down to cost to upgrade vs the performance difference it will make, if you can get by with what you got, continue to do so...

When new technology comes out that makes your computer a lot less desirable and an upgrade is warranted, I'd say buy the upgrade..

Obviously going from a dual core to a quad core was justifiable, especially in the light of using x64 Windows Vista or Windows 7 with 4 GB of RAM or more.

Upgrading with a 50% to 100% performance gain makes sense, anything less just doesn't make sense unless the cost difference is nominal & you need a newer computer..

This really isn't rocket science, truly..

True but that 1-2% increases as cards get more powerful. 2% for one card may be 2fps for someone but 10 fps for me, see what I mean. Also, if in the future I plan on getting say a dual gpu card, this http://techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/H...caling/26.html leads me to believe that 4 lanes per GPU is definately a big hit in performance. Some games have as much as 40% lost performance. Granted, the overall loss isn't that big but I don't like to lose performance I paid for. I am all about Performance per dollar. Some people may not be but to each his own.

if you want performance per dollar, you get sandy bridge
