CPU's are just that good mate.

I have an Intel Core i5-2500K myself, and this thing pwns everything I throw at it.

@ $220 it's price performance ratio is just crazy awesome.
I'm on a socket 755, using an Intel Core 2 Quad 9550. And for me, my box still pwns everything that I throw at it. It encodes videos like a beast, with my rip lock disabled DVD burner I rip DVD's in less than 8 minutes. It launches and runs multiple VM's super fast, etc. I looked into upgrading to a Core i7-2600k...but that's going to cost me $650 for mobo, CPU and RAM. I just don't see there being $650 worth of improvement from what I am coming from.My current box is about 20 months old...still going to wait another year or so before upgrading it I think.

I'm sure that's the case (those Q9xxx CPUs are top notch).

But still, for people looking for some extra performance, Sandy Bridge is the way to go.

LGA 1366, on average is ~17% faster per clock compared to LGA 775, and LGA 1155 CPUs are ~5% faster than 1st generation Intel Core i5-i7 CPUs, so that's about a ~22% performance difference per clock compared to LGA 775.

Sick.

I am still sticking with my LGA-1366 as i am still making it better i had 12gb of ram in it for over a year now i now have 24GB Ram my next upgrade is a Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition Gulftown 3.33GHz LGA 1366 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor BX80613I7980X.
why should i do a upgrade when i can make my 1366 a monster i allready have everything ...i dont need to go out and by everything new.

now if i was going to buy brand new and dont have a motherboard case cpu etc.. .. then i would go with a LGA 2011.

Me i am sticking with LGA~1366
