Ya I got 4 Intel quad cpus in the house atm, 2 installed and flying on what I`m considering old (but excellent) tech (35/38 series). I want to go 45/48, which will home all the cpus I have then, and frankly the first round of the new intel sockets can blow me afaic.
I got plans for the 35/38 hardware, with psu/cpu/mem/drives/gfx all ready and drooling away, it`s just w8ing for Abit (who I really want to buy off) to get their finger out. They`ve already spoken out about rumors about them dropping mobos as false, but by the time they bring their 45/48 out in UK/US, ASUS and the likes will be pushing their 58 ranges.. or so it seems and feels.
Think I may fetish mobos like u may gfxcards
It`s all well and good to get one of the existing 48 models, I`ve eyed up the Foxconn for a trial in the wild and even the ASUS which would feel bad to me tbh, I just know it. Even the DFI.. meh. I`d just feel absolutely sick if I got an alt and then the Abit comes out.
Bleh, as far as gfxcards are concerned, I may well need 1, and in this case I would go for the greater nVidia, not x2, 280 would be it atm. I installed a ATI for some1 not too long ago, and it still `felt` strange to me, kinda like an ASUS mobo
I`d still recommend them tho, price per fps.
Ugh I got a few days off too and I`m effing gagging to do some rebuilding.
