First build! and why I should of did this years ago. - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Thread Starter 
Yeah 6 months ago 1156 was gonna be the mainstream socket, then 1366, and then 1155. I don't know what the truth is. I'm hoping the talk that 1156 will be this gens 775 is what happens. If anything yeah I'll be limited for a major upgrade but I can move to some i5 i7 quads if necessary.

Yep it is but I think I read somewhere that intel makes their next chips on 1366 aswell or something, but as I said I wasn't 100% sure but just used it as an example in my post that if it is, I can upgrade my cpu as the new ones fit my mobo if you see what I mean

this so far from true. They are replacing 1366 with 2011. Intel will not be making new chips for 1366. The latest chip from them for the 1366 socket is the 990x which is most likely going to be the last.

There's nothing really wrong with 1156, even right now. Sure it's now a bit limited in upgrades, but it's a decent platform, capable of running i5 and some i7 chips. And the i5-760 is as much as most gamers really need for the time being.
The i3 is a rapid little thing, and it clocks very well. With the right cooler and board you may well get over 4GHz out of it.
I personally believe that killing 1156 was possibly the worst thing Intel has done recently. Every time I consider a move to Intel, they pull some crap like this and push me right back to AMD. AMD hasn't obsoleted an entire platform in one go since they killed s939.

they didn't kill 1155, they recalled it to fix it. They are releasing it this month. lol, you people really need to read about your hardware news more.

It is so dumb to buy 1156 right now if you are building new, when you can buy 1155 for the same price and get so much more out of it.

I don't think it was dumb to get a 1156 system for now, but planning on upgrading to a better 1156 CPU would be dumb in my opinion. I was able to get a new i3 550 and a new H55 motherboard for $135 at Microcenter, so I bought it to use while the SB chipsets were fixed. But any significant 1156 CPU upgrade (ie i5 760) would cost you only slightly less than an upgrade to a 2500k and 1155 board.

what are you talking about? where in his post did he mention the death of 1155?

seriously, you need to comprehend what youre saying before criticizing other people.

edit: also to op, pressing enter would help immensely- hate walls of text with barely any space.

either return packages or something. you can definitely do better with the amount of money u put in.

with SB, it relies less on ram and blck- so you can skimp on ram and take the money you saved and go with a better cpu. the win7 is probably taking a good chunk of the money away too

Lol I just said I was mistaken and you keep going at it, please try to understand what I said. I said in that post that I used the 1366 as an example (and in this case fictional) to make it easy to understand that if you buy into a dead socket you wont be able to upgrade your cpu, try to understand before keeping to go at it. If you say that he can upgrade his cpu when buying a socket where there will be no newer CPU's then fine, your a magician. I even stated I wasn't sure if I was right and said again in the 2nd post that I just used it as an example.

i3 is a very gud chip even for current games...i dont understand why people want to get "the best" when all they r gonna do is game or day to day usage......
or i think a few people get insanely costly rigs just to show off.....
to op an i3 is perfectly fine...but i too agree if u could cancel the order u should do it....
and lga1156 is not a bad platform the i7 870 is similar to the i7 9xx with only diff being lesser pcie lanes(that too is meaning less if u r going for dual card setup,it will only hinder performance a bit in tri card systems)....+integrated memory controller in i7 8xx(lga1156)......so for anybody who does no like to show off and just wants to game and use day to day apps,even a measly i3 is sufficient(not to mention amd phenoms and older lga775 quads too)........

You nailed it! Win 7 takes a large % of the cost. Memory was dirt cheap. Lots of people say get SB and Lga 1155 for the same money. I never found it for the same money though. I mean yeah if it's even money I F'ed up. I don't need amazing capability I basically just game, and I don't have six programs running in the background like some. I guess the question is do I need 1155 gen processors?
