Don't think so. BTW, why would you care if you can't even afford a new platform?

I don't think 6-core will become affordable in a year or two.

what do you mean? i can't afford a new platform for now , and would like to only upgrade the cpu in the future.

EDIT

damn intel and their high cpu prices

Nope, that's a dead platform now.

THE 1035T WILL B AFFORDABLE, OP get rid of that 775 setup, go am3 or 1156, if ur an intel fan, you can get a 530+board+2gigs of ram for 250, i really believe that once intel sees how well phenom II X6 is doing, socket 1156 will majically become hexacore compatible, tho they might restrict hexacores to the p55 chipset, you know how intel does

Nope, the current Core2 line up is the best thing that will every be on socket 775. If you want better, you need a new motherboard.

6 core will also be very affordable soon, for those who use AMD at least, but it's likely they won't outpeform I7.

1035T? Is it from AMD?

Since most apps still utilize no more than 3 cores, Thuban would be useless and lose to quad i7 in most cases if it is nothing more than a PII with additional 2 cores added which is very likely to be the case. Hence, I only have my eyes on the Intel 6-core and hope that the Intel Sandybridge 6-core will be available for around $350 (which is the most I am willing to pay for a CPU) in a little more than a year from now.

I'd like a cheap hex for 775. I personally see no reason to upgrade yet from 775 to 1366. The difference I notice in gaming would be negligible in my opinion.

But I get my Noctua NH14 in the mail tomorrow! Can't wait to overclock the crap out of my Q660 before moving onto 1366.

I also heard that 6-core CPUs will completely saturate dual-channel if I am not mistaken. Hence, 6-core on dual-channel MB is meh IMO.

At least AMD has upgradable path for affordable 6-core?

Why should I care as a guy who always get a new MB in every upgrade?

You'd be correct, but you've also just negated any reason to get a 6-core in the same breath.

Socket 775 is dead and gone, and I'd be very dubious about seeing a 6-core on 1156 either to be honest, unless (as stated above) the AMD Thubans really kick some ass and Intel want to compete with them in the mainstream sector.

To be fair, a Q9550 or above is hardly a bottleneck on most anything at this point. No, I'm not saying buy a 775 platform, but if you already have a C2Q, I'd just stick it out and wait for Sandy Bridge in a year and a half.
