January 2nd, 2010 is when I ordered my Asus P6T and I7 920.
Replaced the GTS 250 with a 680 this year, and put in an SSD as my primary.
Still a sweet gaming rig, and for anything else.
So it's worked out well. Lacking only SATA 6gbs and USB 3.
Only thing is socket 1366 is basically dead.
So I had an odd problem that pointed at a possible bad disk controller on the MB, and I started looking at options.
Get a new or used 1366 MB with SATA 6gbs and USB 3. Fixes it right up, with all my current components.
Pretty much discarded that after seeing the prices, and decided that going with a new 1150 socket and CPU would only cost a couple hundred more, max.
But I'd also lose my mem chips unless I wanted just 6gb, since the new stuff is dual channel.
Kind of a BS position as far as I'm concerned. I won't toss good gear for marginal improvements.
Don't know if this specific situation is unique to the 1366. All my other upgrades, including the 1366, bought a lot of improvement.
Going to an 1150 won't get me much at all.
But the price of 1366 MB's with SATA 6gbs and USB 3 make the 1150 and new CPU look like a better choice.
Not a fan of used MB's either.
I'm probably wrong about the controller going bad, and I'll stick with my P6T for now.
But I've had a couple MB's die on me, and I might get pushed.
Anybody have any thoughts about this? It's an "old" type question, and maybe I'm not thinking clearly, or missing something.
