Well, a Sandy Bridge system is going to better now and in the long run. As I understand it, it's already more powerful than a 1366 setup, the chips overclock like mad (assuming unlocked) and 1155 has more of an upgrade path than 1366 does.

It all comes down to what you prefer, neither platforms are lacking in the performance department and you already mentioned you'd prefer the cheaper x58 setup. If you're not concerned about having the latest and greatest and are fine knowing that there'll be no more CPU releases for your platform then go with x58.

If you are allready on i7, going to SB is pointless
If you are building from scratch, then SB definatly

(I went from x58 to SB only because i did a straight trade/swap) The only advantage is cheap ram(sort of) and higher clocks (i am at 5.0ghz now)
and SB is faster clock for clock

c'mon man. You already have x58 parts. I personally would go for x58. But if you are gonna start from scratch right now, I will go for Sandy Bridge. You will spend the same price or maybe less. price to performance ratio would be Sandy Bridge.

+1 - for price performance defo Sandy, But price performance goes out the window if you sell an i7 rig for it and then have to add cash for SB

Only reason you would built an x58 rig now is for hexacore or Quad SLI/Xfire
also the x58 motherboards look sexy!

With an 1155 setup now, you're getting a system that is as fast or faster than 1366 85-90% of the time, can potentially cost less, overclocks higher, runs cooler, uses less energy, and has an upgrade path with the upcoming Ivy Bridge processors next year.

If you're going to do some hardcore benchmarking (competitively) or extremely high-end workstation/CAD/etc work, 1366 is the best choice with a hex core. Otherwise, it's 1155 all the way
