I am thinking of the following mobo/CPU combos:
1) Z77 LGA 1155 with Core i7-2600K CPUor2) X79 LGA 2011 with Core i7-3820 CPU
The LGA 2011 combo will cost me about $50 more then the LGA 1155 solution.I will be doing some gaming, photoshop and video creation.
My question is, which will be faster?
Which format LGA1155 or LGA2011 will last the longest in terms of new CPU support?
1155 processors for mainstream. 2nd generation. http://ark.intel.com/products/52214
2011 processors for high end processing (2011 would be bang for the buck deal.) $50+ is better Flops/Watt performance. 3rd generation. http://ark.intel.com/products/63698
Go with 2011 processor. The setup is new (may cost more); if you are not keen with spending more, go with 1155 processor setup.
Hey, thanks a lot!!! This was very helpful.
I like the option to overclock, even if it is a light overclock.
The 3820 for $199 at Microcenter is a great price, but I am not very close to one.
Actually it is $229 - closer to $250 with tax - still a good deal:
It does look like the 2011 might be the better platform if I plan on keeping the system more then a couple of years.
i'd vote for x79 setup.
though would also recommend IVY BRIDGE i7 3770K for future proofing
