I would personally go for an i5 2500k with a p67 motherboard Once you start the waiting game, its a hard one to stop.

agree with Tortuga on waiting game but I'd go with i7 1155 2600K. Which ever you get get the Gigabyte Mobo (mature drivers)...OC'ing is much better. See Toms' review / Video

You also have AMD bulldozer and Intel Ivybridge coming out. If you wait too long you will end up changing everything and that really sucks Lol

Meh, he said gaming rig, for that purpose I think the 2500k would be the better bet, as he could put the extra $100 bucks into a better gpu which will be doin most of the work. Just my warped 2 cents But if money is of no issue, 1366 is still the champ.

Opps...got his and another thread on workstation combined,,,multiple tabs can be a pain in the arsey. I agree with 2500K...not much of a performance increase other than 2 extra MB of L3 cache to substantiate 2600k price tag for his needs

If you need the rig now, go with the best for your needs/budget now. Do you need 6 cores? HyperThreading (2600k)? If no, go with the 2500k.

Also compare some reviews. If you don't like to read, watch TTLs great reviews on Youtube, but those on OC3D are more complete.

If you don't need de rig right now, wait until you do, and then think about AM3+ or 2011 sockets.

But with the waiting game you'll loose a few months of fun with a realy good rig (1366 or 1155). Will it be worth it? You decide.

I wish I could afford one of those 1366 980 extremes. 1300.00 us dollars i think
