Go with 1366. I'm rocking out a 920 which you can pick up for about $200ish (depending where you buy from). I've heard to many complaints about sandy bridge. I understand the problem was fixed, but the fact that there was a recall with those processors just does not sit right with. But you may want to think of Ivy Bridge since that should be releasing soon. Or another option you may want to consider is may going the AMD route. Good processors for people on a tight budget. Thought about building an AMD rig myself this year. But back to the 1366, these processors really are beastly. I OC'd my 920 to 4ghz, and it is F.A.S.T. Even before I OC'd it, it was a beast.

What do you think about my ASRock X58
Its great! And yes 4.0ghz was a breeze!
Definitly think about getting a 1366/1155 . I wouldnt buy a new E8400(imo) look for a used cpu ( like suggested) if you need to get your rig going now. That would hold you over till you can update! like it was said ,by christmas there will be bigger better things out there ! So maybe just save and see what happens!!!!

The recall wasn't with the CPUs. The CPUs are fine. It was with the chipsets on the motherboards, and they're fixed.

The existing Sandy Bridge CPUs beat the existing Nehalems for most intents and purposes, and then you have Ivy Bridge coming later, whereas LGA1366 is about as done as LGA775 is, so why go from one dead platform to another almost as dead? Yeah, it performs better, but so does Sandy Bridge and won't cost much more. It's really a no question case unless you want to be in this situation again sooner rather than later.

For all intents and purposes, depending on your use, all three sockets can still be relevant. You can stick with the oldest, but spent the least, or spend more and the latest, or go somewhere in the middle with LGA1366. Actually, if a high end board and CPU for LGA1366 are what you're after, you'll probably spend as much as you would on Sandy Bridge, or if not pretty close to it. If the idea is to get up to date, I say go Sandy Bridge.

Since you already have the motherboard, you could probably find some used Core 2 Duo E8x00s around $100 (or lower?) or so, maybe. I'm not sure of their exact value, but if you need a new board and CPU, just get Sandy Bridge.
IF I'M NOT WRONG, yes, Ivy Bridge will use the 1155 platform, but no, Ivy Bridge will not be supported on the current chipsets.

I disagree respectfully SIR!

1366 will be around and still respectable for along while. And i agree 775 is near death! There is still a big market and alot of avaliable products for 1366, and will probaly be around almost as long as sandbridge!(just my opinion)

Wow looks like i will be doing some more searching about sandybridge and ivybridge i would rather go for 1366 but looks like the more people with "rep" say its just as dead as 775

Why bother with 1366 when for the same price if not cheaper you can get 1155.

with either the 2500k or 2600k you will get better bang for buck than any 1366 cpu

1366 will be around only for those who have something better than a i7 950...

But come next year, 2011 will rape it.

So in that case, no... 1366 will not be around very long, they've already stopped the series...

So ask yourself this...
Get 1366 but spend $800+ on an actual 1366 CPU?
Or spend $200-300 on 1155 and get similar performance as the $800+ 1366 CPU's?

And Ivy Bridge will use the same 1155 Socket, and I'd assume a simple BIOS update will allow full functionality with it on any 1155 MoBo.
