Ok there is a difference between x58 and p67.


I wanna know by how much including mild overclocks and really by user experience the noticeable difference.

If you went something like a i7 960 or 2600K with a ssd, high end gpu card all the standards for a high end pc.

For gaming and general use, surfing the net downloading movies etc

Watching HIGH DEF video etc. What would be the best choice ??

And keep in mind price dosent matter in this situations, and keep in mind the bugs and etc of P67 atm.

The P67 has some advantages, performance isn't one of them. Between the X58 and the P67 a user shouldn't see any performance advantage, one shouldn't be able to realise what's inside the box without searching for that info in particular. The P67 is better though because of:
*2 SATAIII ports of the fastest implementation available, SSDs like Vertex3 should be able to take advantage of this
*consumes less at idle, somewhat less at load
*if one would push the CPU at max, the higher performance per clock, higher clock headroom and the lower heat dissipation of the 2600K would be an advantage (noticeable only in benchmarks though)

For HD video even an E-350 or the slowest regular dual core is good enough, for games both are as good as the graphics card mounted on the rig. One last advantage of the P67 boards is they seem to support 22nm Ivy Bridge CPUs.

Single or dual video cards - Sandy Bridge wins - the place for X58 is when going to multi gpu such as 3 way or 4 way sli. Clock for clock SB wins, but only has 16X lanes, it can use an NF200 to get around that, but still the implementation doesn't work quite as well as 32 dedicated lanes.

what do you mean they will support the ivy bridge CPU's ?? on the same motherboards? I thought they were a hole different pin count ?

No , the IVY BRIDGE will adapt to the SB socket.

my vote goes with sandy bridge due to better oc potentiality,
sandy bridge supports cf/sli @ 8x compared to 16x in x58 chipset,but frankly speaking there is no differnce between a card running in 8x & 16x

I was just looking at it, in stability wise as well ?

Like seems x58 has a much better driver set and no bugs, since ive gone to SB i have come across quiet afew different bugs and motherboards, yes the overclock is good but in all honestly i dont think going from stock speeds to a major overclock is much noticeably different to the naked eye. Its more for bragging rights ?

Going from 3.3GHz to 4.5GHz is pretty nice though.

true does feel good, but u can go 4ghz on a x58 board and its got 6 cores its hard to choose between the two to b honest

It is NICE but, he is right...there's really no discernable difference.

Really any core on the X58 socket, you can hit 4ghz...It is a well ironed out platform.

Clock for clock, SB is somewhere in the neighborhood of 15% faster BUT, you do sacrifice some stability.

In the end, it's really about what you want...My 980x can hit 4.5+ghz but, I paid over 700$ for the core alone, 300$+ for a motherboard that could handle my overclock...So, you do PAY more and get slightly less.
