If you live near a MC you can get the i5 760 there for $169.99. Also that's a good mobo and the 760 is perfect for gaming .

If you're building now, i5 2500k is much better than i5 760.

Microcenter is still selling both the 2500k and the 1155 boards, you will want to RMA the 1155 board for free around April when the fixed ones are released.

is the 1156 a good socket to build on?
post #8 of 11
Don't get a sandybridge,it's usually only good for OVERCLOCKING.. and plus i heard you HAVE to have a 480 and up to play dx11
however a i5 760 is just perfect. Good budget too and more room for your upgrades too. Think smart!

I have an 1156 and I love it, but if you can go with the newest architecture, why not. 1156 is still good though.

Yeah but most of the really good motherboards are gone. I got lucky and found mine brand new on ebay (sig one) for 180 with a $20 MIR free shipping.


Cause my p7p55d Deluxe Open Box was dead. Piece of the south bridge fell off or something? lol I was like uhhh wuut?
