Take your grouchy pants off there

I can tell you have done no searching on your own, so I'll make it easy for you.

1) Sandy Bridge CPU's are hands down faster in EVERY way.
2) They're competitively priced.
3) Motherboards are priced ridiculously low - $120-$150 for a GOOD overclocking board.
4) They're uber sexy and give you a very large e-peen, and in some cases, a very large REAL-peen.


Now, go do everyone a favor here and do some SEARCHING ON YOUR OWN!!! I will go ahead and tell you that everything I have said is true, including #4.

Thanks and come again!

And again, since no one on this thread mentioned it once which I am very surprised - Intel Core i5-2500k is a brand new CPU. 1090T came out in April of 2010, a year old technology. And might I say further more, a technology that was even around before that for years since Thuban was just an architectural upgrade of an Istanbul Opteron Processor and not an entirely whole new architecture. The 1090T holds its ground well considering its an old chip and its history. And I would still like to see other sources claiming that the 2500k blows the 1090T/1100T out of the water except for that only one source everyone keeps posting here on this thread.
I will address your motherboard issue 1st. You can easily grab a GOOD p67 motherboard for $150.

The 2500K is being compared to the 1090T because they are in the same price range, and this is AMD's top of the line RIGHT NOW. For new builds, it doesn't make sense to go AMD, heck it doesn't even make sense to build an X58 system either right now. Notice the keywords "right now", since BD isn't out, there's nothing else to compare it to.

The 2500K & 2600K are overclocking beasts that can easily do 4.5+ on AIR. Show me a 1090T that can do 4.5 on AIR. So, when you look up all these benchmarks keep in mind their overclocking potential as well.

No probs, I just copied and pasted all the reviews from my SB reviews and info thread.
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...scussions.html

I put in the time in this thread a while back to learn all about SB, and to help educate others as well.

Nice! Good job on that thread as well!

I'm still disappointed I couldn't get Sandy Bridge. I went to MicroCenter when they were having their awesome sales, and thats when I found out about the Mobo recall Yep, so SB Mobos for me, so I had to pick up the i7 950 & USB3 Board, cuz I needed a RIG that day!

Oh well, life goes on. I'll see what happens in the next round.

I never said that Intel or sandy bridge motherboards were way more expensive, I said they are more expensive which is a fact and anyone who builds pc's knows this. And ACTUALLY, if you look at high end offerings as in the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula Motherboard ($214) compared to an ASUS Rampage III Extreme ($379) there is a huge difference in price for what?! Both motherboards are essentially the same thing and the specification of both are practically identical. There should not be that large of a price difference. It could mean if your building an AMD system and you are on a budget you could get a second GPU and or nice Corsair liquid unit, or what ever you want.

I like how you went back and edited the post to include prices of LGA1366 Motherboards (highlighted in red)!!! You do realize this is a discussion regarding SANDY BRIDGE / LGA1155 now right?

Anyways, why would we bother to mention how new or old a CPU is?! It doesn't matter in a thread like this. The OP is asking what's the best bang for his buck, regardless of how old it is. Before Sandy Bridge came out, sure the 1090T was fantastic! Heck, I owned a 1055T before trading it and a little $$ for an i7 930 + Board here on the forums.

Noone here is trying to piss you off, but do yourself a favor and SEARCH before DEMANDING we provide you with links and information you can find on your own.

That sucks, the 950 is still great, if you needed a computer at the time, and picked it up at MC, it was $199 correct? So that's a really good deal still, and if you're primarily gaming, you won't encounter a CPU bottleneck with the 950 + 580 ya know? That's still a pretty beastly set up.

Look at it this way, you have something to look forward to in Ivy Bridge.

Also, just ignore that other guy, I think we've provided more than enough info for the OP to make a wise decision.

Yeah, it was a good deal, but just mildly upsetting as I don't really game that much, and was looking for a lower TDP you know? I sold the i7 930, and "upgraded" to a 950. lol That wasn't the plan mind you, as I was planning on buying Sandy Bridge... oh well, it is still brutally fast and does everything I want/need in a timely manner, so no worries

And yeah, I'm not worried about the guy, just amused.
