1366 deals or 1155?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN, I previously posted about building a 1366 rig which never came to be, not to crazy about it but life goes on and well, I still need a new rig and trying to figure out what my options are. In the meantime I’m trying to learn as much as I can about all this new tech, reviewing other builds etc…

I cannot be the only one thinking this so I figured I ask. Since SB pricing for performance is so awesome, at what price point would it be a good deal to go ahead and pickup a 1366 over a 1155? Or is the SB performance/pricing just to good to bother trying to build a 1366 as its not likely one will find prices low enough to justify not getting SB?


Examples… (price including shipping cost in USA)
I7 920 - $150 - $170
I7 950 - $190 - $200 ($199 retail at Micro Center and 2500k is just $30 more)
I7 970 - $450 - $470
I7 980 - $600 - $650 (2600k still cost half this price)

Your thoughts please…

Considering the minimal diffrence in prices between 1366 and 1155 i think it's a no brainer really. Unless you are after a crazy powerful i7 990x cpu/board combo.

Bang for buck you can't beat 2500k unless you can find a used 1366 rig

well this is what i am asking, at what price point, be it someone looking to sell their rig or some closeout deal, what would you call a good deal that would make you pass on SB, even if just to hold you off till Ivy?

All of the 1366s 950 and above are basically equal to the 2600k, with the exception of maybe the 975 Extreme, and certainly the 970, 980, and 990. I would still go with the 1366 though due to more PCIe options.

I'm holding out for Ivy myself; I'd say if you can get a used board/i7-960 for $450, take it. But there's also the tri-channel vs dual-channel for the memory to consider. 1366 still has its own advantages, and your CPU normally isn't what bottlenecks your system.

I pulled the trigger a few days ago and got myself an i7 950 from the far far away microcenter. So far so good.

In that case, it's a no brainer. 2500K all the way.

Motherboards will be back in shelves in 2, 3 weeks max.

MSI's boards may be available as early as March 7, ASUS & Gigabyte started shipping their shipped mobo's as well.
