i3 - 1155 or 1156 ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hello ocn,

im new here with my first post. smile.gif
sorry for my english, it's not my main language...


i'm gonna start building a budget gaming pc with i3 and gtx460.

this build should play my games till Q4 2011, then i'm gonna use this as second PC and building an ivy/kepler/wc build.


so my quesion is: i3 on the "old" 1156 or new 1155 sb socket?
I rellay like to OC and hope to push the 1156 i3 to 4.2-4.4GHz with an good air cooler.

but the 1155 is newer and faster clock for clock, but dind't oc that mutch (bclk +5?), also features like usb3.


the 2500k is to expensive, also too good for an "second pc" later.


Whats your opinion? cheers.gif



thanks
