What to do?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was planning finally ordering my sandy bridge parts in the upcoming days, but this whole cougar point thing really threw me off.

At the moment, I REALLY need a computer and holding off til April is not an option.

I don't know if I should just get a p55 system or just go with an AMD 1100T x6 system. I want to weigh my options before making a decision.

What do you guys think I should get?

I'd rather get an i7 instead of an x6. I think you mean p67, because that's the chipset for Sandybridge. Wait a few days, google around to see which manufacturers have shipped out new motherboards and then, buy it.

Build a super-cheap H55 system or AMD for $500 or under. Use that as your placeholder computer until P67 is fixed, then build a P67, and relegate your H55/AMD to a media center pc or file server.

If you can find a P67 board on the web, such Amazon.com get it and build a SB build.

Gigabyte and Asus are giving out free motherboard upgrades to the new revision come April (when they are released) no questions asked.

SATAIII ports are unaffected, and SATAII only has like a 5-15% to even be affected, and then takes 1-3 years to show signs of degradation with (AFAIK) no damage to the component using the port.
