No I'm still using a E6600 (lol), had it since it came out. I've been waiting for Sandy Bridge to come out to do a full system upgrade but not until recently I became aware of the 2011 socket. Right now in my head I'm thinking "why get the 1155 when the 2011 is also coming out the same year and it brings a lot more to the table?" Quad-Channel memory and PCI E 3.0!

I think I'm gonna wait for the 2011, grabbing the 1155 will sure give me an awesome performance boost but I will be stucked with the same technology (same dual channel memory, same pci 2.0 support)

If socket 2011 has quad channel memory and PCIe 3.0 than socket 1155 is a complete waste IMHO. No way I would invest in 1155 when socket 2011 is going to be much better!

Or you could wait until 2012 when the socket 43432143 is coming out, shit will flip your damn pancakes for you I heard!

In all seriousness, gaming you'll get great performance. Upgrade now if you want to, if you wait like that you'll be waiting years.

you forgot the main thing about the whole s1155 VS s2011

1155 = 2/4 cores
2011 = 2/4/6/8 cores

but i've seen info of 2011 being a server oriented socket
1356 supposedly being our high end socket

so to sum up
1356
24 3.0 PCIe lanes
1 qpi
dmi2
tri/quad channel(depending on which information is right)
2/4/6/8 cores
20mb cache

2011
40 3.0 PCIe lanes
2 qpi
dmi2
quad channel
4/6/8 cores
20mb cache

1155
20 2.0 PCIe lanes
NO qpi
dmi
dual channel
2/4 cores
3/6mb cache
intregrated graphic

1155 is only the peak of the iceberg when were talking Sandy Bridge, it will make some really nice laptop tho

Lol I buy the latest all the time but I know when there is a time to wait.

If those reviews are indications of what SB is capable of, I may hold off to see Bulldozer performance unless the SB performs a lot better than what we have now through oc.

Tough time to decide to get a new computer =\

The main question is : Do you need 6/8 core CPU and PCI-E 3.0? I mean 40 LAnes... GPU don't even use 8 lanes right now, (see 8x vs 16x in SLI). Unless you are Quadrupule SLI'ING with 6990 LOL. I mean not for gaming that for sure since most games doesn't even use 4 cores and won't unless they are optimised for PC (witch most aren't) because of console ports..

Yeah that's true, but if I'm planning a new system build and I'm jumping from my current Core Duo, I will want the latest out there so that I don't have to play catchup so soon. The 2011 should last me for about 5 years or so before the next upgrade

yes some games use quadcore efficiently...bfbc2 is the first to come to mind, and yes if they stop doing simple console ports it would help

you ever thought that there's more about PC than gaming? have you ever encode a video with an hexacore? You'll cry when you'll loose cores

if you read me right 40lanes is the server socket
And yes some DO use 4x gpu. That's why they make 3 different platform for 3 kind of different user. You might be surprise on how pcie3.0 will behave in 16x vs 8x we don't know yet but it'S a new standard which might change how we use to see it.

if you have no use for it....doesn't mean other people don't
