1) Which socket would you go with: am3 or 1156?
2) Which of those socket do you think will have a longer life?
3) What are the prices going to be on i5 cpu and 1156 mobo's?
4) Will any of the 1156 motherboards support crossfire?

Thank you in advance.

Am3 has already been out for a while and 1156 is just coming out. Most AM3 boards with 2 pci-e slots support crossfire.

I think 1156 is going to be a waste cause the high end is still going to be x58...

So I would go with the Am3 so your getting the better side of AMD.

As for the longer life I am not sure as of this point.

If you have the money now I would x58 but that is irrelevant to your question.

Hope this helps a bit.

Also I doubt that I need the power of the i7 because I will only be gaming, folding a little, and homework. You do not know how many times I considered it though.

so go amd or intel (775) if your going to be doing light stuff.

start off with p35's then work your way up if you get interested more.

amd's i dont personally know that well i have a server setup with amd works great but i could use an upgrade on amd but only for budget.

if no budget go 775.

I'd actually start with P45s.. no reason to start THAT far back.

If you have the cash, I'd wait for the 1156 socket to become prevalent and then assemble a rig.
