I'm about to build my first computer, which I haven't done in 10yrs since I've I've owned laptops forever. I recently started ripping blurays (w/DVDFab) and realized laptops suck for this. After reading up, I was planning on getting a 1366 i7 970 setup with the price reduction of the 970 (I got a GTX470 card from a friend which will help with the compression with the cuda cores). But I started reading all this stuff about SB and seeing benchmarks and what not and the fact that 1155 P67's are starting to hit the shops again. Reading lots of forums and threads, I see there's lots of conflicting replies over the battle btwn 1366 & 1155, which is better, faster, etc. If I'm primarily using it for video compression, am I better off with the 970 vs 2600k because of the threading and addl cores? I'll be using it for gaming once in a while, but primary use is ripping.
