could be silly to you but when your mobo and cpu both fry .. and ur left with an open slate to go either way .. i went with the best route that is available to me at this time ..

i can care less for BD, AMD lately has been pretty disappointing for me with their CPU selection only reason i even went with the X6 chips in the first place was because it was a gift and really .. Sandy Bridge wasnt even out yet.

I know that if I dropped $475 on a CPU + Mobo only to find BD is faster for less I'd be very upset with myself..

you do know ivy bridge will be compatible with current p67 boards right?

475 was including shipping $444.98 is the subtotal for both parts. I would also be disappointed to have gone back with the ****ty selection of the 1090t for my gaming rig and be slapped in the face by another ****ty cpu line released by AMD .. either way it doesnt matter im left without a gaming pc atm so i needed replacements anyway.

Heres some food for thought:

Asus Crosshair IV Formula - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131644 - $229.00

AMD Phenom II X6 1090t - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103849 - $199.99

Total Price for both to replace what i had lost = $428.99

Total Price for my Sandy Selection - $444.98 a whole $15.99 difference

Do i care for a whole 15$? no .. do i care BD is coming out in July? NO

what i do care about is getting performance what i paid for and tbh seeing this open slate to go either way i went with the better choice for really a marginal price difference.

Bulldoser works in the Crosshair 4 wink.gif

Not to mension much better PCIEX lanes... x8/x8 on SB is bad for such a new chipset.

All I have to do is buy BD and drop it straight into my existing AM3 motherboard = Mega cheap upgrade wink.gif

And if BD is faster then SB then even better for me biggrin.gif

like i said .. if my motherboard and cpu hadnt fried i wouldnt be jumping ship to a sandybridge setup. TBH even if my crosshair iv would support the new BD chip im the type of person who would go out and buy the chipset am3+ boards that will probably be releasing when BD comes out.

I'm sorry I do not look at AMD products through rose colored goggles, the 1090t never performed that well from what i expected back when it came out so tbh why would i go back to the same chip that disappointed me in the first place only to sit around and hope AMD releases a great chip with BD?

Ill take my chances seeing as how its already been said that some P67 Boards will be supporting Ivy Bridge when it comes out which will allow me to upgrade to an IB. Then later on buy a better board if money is an issue when Ivy is released.

Reporting for trolling with incorrect information.

The x8 lanes on SB have as much bandwidth as x16 lanes on AM3 and 1366.

Go away, let the man enjoy having the fastest quad core on the market.


OP enjoy, you're going to love finally being able to stretch the legs on your vid cards.

Even if Bulldozer someone manages to be faster that won't make your chip any slower

Care to prove me wrong?

x8 is not faster then x16...no matter which way you swing it.

And the fastest quad core on the market would be the 2600K and not the 2500K he's ordered.
