Sorry fellas we )my mate and I) got off on a tangent there

Actually PP I got the i5 2500 and it has been just real nice although in hindsight I should have gone the "K" and P67 - never mind will wait for what others think of the IB otherwise I am going for the 2ng gen i5's on a Z68.

Why not the Z77?

Intel Unveils New Z77 Motherboards

Just wait a couple months to make sure there isn't a 67 chipset repeat.

Agree Dave would be the height of impetuousness (one of my bad habits) to jump straight in eh?

Wonder what the prices are going to be like hopefully not like some of those 2011 jobs

Il'l wait untill I suck the life out of my amd board and cpu or until it's not enough for my needs and upgrade to a intel board and cpu For now my amd build is pretty rock solid for my needs. Might change it to a 6 core phenom ii maybe later if i need more horse power or a intel board with a intel cpu like a i7 once they get a bit more affordable for me.

Actually MIG if you are going to go for an Intel if it is for the normal day to day stuff plus a little gaming the i5 cores are just as good and two thirds of the price - normally.

My son has Phenom 1090t and $3K set uo and I reckon my i5 2500 and H67 board knock a few spots of it even with his O/Cing.

But it's horses for courses eh?

I use my pc mainly for 3d gaming,internet and doing some photo editing in gimp. Though The reason I want to maybe get a pheonom ii 6 core is because it is the highest cpu my current mobo can handle and the other way I would have to buy a new mobo and cpu instead of just a cpu but thanks for the tips. Will remember this for when I want to switch over to a intel board and cpu

Hum had a look at some of those Z77 boards and the RAM speeds supported are not that crash hot! - 1600Mhz seems to be the best they can do.

Mind you get a squizzy at this article and the wholesale prices

Intel Z77 chipset LGA 1155 boards launching April 8th

The Z77 specs haven't been officially released yet, Z68 is 2133MHz, I'm sure the RAM speed will be the same or a little more.

You can always overclock higher if needed

Hum I'm sort of getting a bit lost with the whole Ivy Bridge issue at the moment there seems to be a lot of stats and articles referring to what will go with what.

I personally am not so sure now that I want to wait for the IB's as the 2nd gen Sandy Bridges look to be more or less "in situ".

I see some refs from other members who are still using and happy with the older Intel cores and boards that accommodate them. It leaves me just wondering if there is going to be any real benefit from having an Ivy bridge build apart from it being latest tech and the decreasing availability of parts for older systems
