True enough,however AMD boards have been cheaper than Intel ones.
OH NO, llmited PCI lanes, definitely go with an AMD instead.
Oh wait, x8 x8 vs x16 x16:
Look at the difference, you can draw your own conclusions.

I already showed him a build which would've had a $15 difference vs his $150 difference claim, but he just skipped over that post. That included the Hyper 212 as well. Without it, the SB build would've been cheaper compared to what his buddy just bought. LOL
Oh, and what people don't mention or talk about is that Sandy Bridge is Intel's mainstream, while the 1090T is AMD's "high end"
I got a feeling that this post will be skipped by both of them as well.
But hey, I'm just an ignorant fanboy.Edited by 2010rig - 3/21/11 at 9:34am
