I must say.I am dissapointed with myself ,in the fact that I really did not do my homework before I went into my local Compusa 2 months ago , to start my system build. Years ago ,I was somewhat of an enthusiast ,but after years of marriage ,and 3 kids ,it had been a while since I really had kept up with the latest technology. After entering the store , ,and heading over to the component section ,I was greeted by a salesperson named, Marcello. After telling him that I wanted to build a gaming rig for my son and I ,he said I was" his" kind of customer.He then took out 3 Boards, The Intel DP55KG ,and 2 X58 Boards ,and EVGA ,and an ASUS . I was figuring to spend like $200-$300 on a Board. He then took me and the 3 boards to the counter to talk to "The Big Guy " to see what" he" thought I should get. Well the Big guy (he was 6'4" !!) decided ,that the P55 board was the way to go ,and I purchased it . I now feel like an Idiot ,because ,if I could do it over ,If I only knew ,I would have gone with X58 in a heartbeat. Oh well ,I guess I will have to start over from scratch and do it right next time. My current system is OK ,and I am not rich by any means ,But I really, really wish I had Gone the Bloomfield route.
