(Feel free to ignore me)

Instead of the 2tb Wd

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-181-_-Product

1Tb (2tb seems overkill) $50 less and an amazing hdd


Instead of 8 kington Ram

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...13&Tpk=g.skill

4gb (8gb also seems overkill for gaming) $45 less

And instead of h70

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-065-_-Product

Both are great coolers but you can't beat hyper 212 for bang for the buck

That should save you around $175 for a new ssd or maybe money towards another gtx 470

Just my
HDD, I may just go along with your recommended specs but I like the Corsair H70 XD
Cheers man, +REP

I don't know about you all but I'm waiting for 8 core Sandy Bridge/Bulldozer chips are released. Then people will be able to compare performance and prices will be fair instead of one company's CPUs owning the market and pricing their products however they want (that's how it is now) instead of to compete.

And I'm not buying a quad core no matter how much faster it is than last gen quad cores (C2Q, i5s etc). Quad is the new dual core now.

Google is your friend in this case, because so far no one here has fixed the misconception of his first post.

The motherboards will not degrade over time. The Sata II ports have an out-of-spec (I want to say transistor but I may be wrong) component that has current leakage. The board you list in your sig rig has 4xSata III Ports which are completely unaffected. So with the 2xHDDs you list+1xOptical Drive+1xE-Sata from your case; You can use all 4 of the Sata III ports and never see an effect.

Edit: You'll get a free replacement board anyway.

The only issue that would arise is if you had more than 4 sata devices, but then you can safely move the optical drive to the sata II ports without much worry.

SandyBridge dominates i7 9x0 series and bulldozer is still just mythical at this stage.

2600K $298 (after Tax in store at Microcenter)
P8P67 Pro $185 (Price newegg had. Amazon still has)

Total~$483 for the current best intel has to offer (exclude 980X). You probablly won't save much if any money going Bulldozer, and anyone claiming it will beat or be beaten by anything has no idea what they are talking about. There are no real benchmarks yet.

Personally I am returning all my SB stuff and waiting for Bulldozer now, I had already RMAed my motherboard before the recall so I got stuck with no motherboard at all a quick email to newegg and they are allowing me to return my i5-2500K and Ripjaws X with no restocking fee as it is not my fault.

I have always preferred AMD in the past and this just put me back to waiting for Bulldozer.

You just contradicted yourself in the same sentence.

Remember this is an enthusiast site so a lot of people (like me) get gear that may be a bit overkill for what they actually use it for.

If you are mainly a gamer, I would focus on the video card (or 2 cards in crossfire or sli) rather than worrying too much about whether or not you have the fastest/best processor.

upgrade from the 470 to athe newer (cooler running) 5xx, or go with a 69xx or two 6850s in crossfire, etc.

also, you don't need 8g ram - go with 4g and then see if you can get a SSD for your boot drive.

How did I contradict myself? I said you probablly won't save much money buying a bulldozer system. Then I said Performance-wise, no one knows what Bulldozer will bring (There are no benchmarks out).

The statement may have been a touch vague by using the word "It," but clearly "it" is the pronoun associated with the noun "bulldozer" in the same sentance.

In fact, the more that I reread the statement the clearer it actually seems, because I specifically state that there are no benchmarks immediately following (but what you failed to highlight)

You shouldn't use Microcenter prices because only a small percentage of people are able to buy from there.

I have to agree with inferno..you can't compare something that's not even out yet or there is not one synthetic benchmark to compare it to, Remember one thing...Bulldozer is brand new chip and will require new platform (you think P67 have issues..? lol)
@OP choose what will suite your needs SB is very nice chip and the MB will get replaced free of charge or you can wait forever ,2011 is coming also
