    i want to buy for a new computer and cpu means
  3. Then it depends on your budget and expected use. Fill in the form stickied at the top of the forum.
  4. I want to know whether my graphics card support lga2011
    Sapphire HD 7870 XT with Boost 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
  5. Your graphics card supports every motherboard released in about the last decade (or a bit less). Whether a 7870XT and a SB-E chips is anywhere near balanced is another matter.
  6. Well if 2011 is the newest, I'd want to get it.
  7. 1155 for intel and AM3+ for amd is the newest at the moment.

    1156 and 2011 for intel and AM3 for amd is a previous era.,

    wait couple weeks and Intel will release a new socket type CPU "Haswell" which is coded with LGA1150

    fyi... There is no best socket type... Its just new or old... You should be asking which CPU is the best performer or smth like that... but it comes again to the point what are you willing to do with it.

    have fun...
  8. Not really - while LGA2011 was released before LGA1155, IB-E is still yet to come out. There will be more chips for LGA2011, but LGA1155 has reached it's end.

    I would imagine that the 3930K is going to be above the top 115x CPU at least until Broadwell.

    i know, i was talking about the release dates, lga2011 was released before lga1155. but performance wise ofcourse still lga2011 cpus are either on par or better than 3770k...
  10. What I meant was kind of that it's not the release date that's important - it's the EOL date.
