Decisions!?!?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a i7-2600k and had to rma the board.Due to having to wait I am trying to decide what to do,this is a hard decision for me. Would it be worth going with a different processor, like a i7-960 or just wait it out with a dead pc. What does everyone think?

Depends how much you can get back from the 2600k and the mobo.
If you can get most if it back go for the i7-960.
I would only do this if you were really impatient though.

Patience is a virtue! How long for board to come back? If not long I would wait.
You must have read the reviews on sandybridge, and compared?
Goes without saying, wait!

I would wait to be honest. From what ive read is it could be anytime in March or mid april for boards.
