Intel 775 vs 1156

Hello,
I am upgrading my desktop. I am not a high end gamer. I do want to do video editing, store lots of pictures and music. Which platform do you recommend? Thank you.

More about intel 1156
  1. 775 is cheaper but has little upgrade path.

    1156 is slightly dearer and is due to be replaced, but has more of an upgrade path depending on what CPU you go for.

    It does entirely depend on your budget. Have you also considered an AMD set up?
  2. I have considered AMD. I've always owned AMD..so I wanted to maybe go with Intel this time around. I priced out an AMD locally, its a
    Athlon 2 245 2.9 ghz dual core, 4GB of DDR 3 ram. The tech mrg said for what I am doing, this will do very nicely..and I keep the new rig at 349.00

    Another reply to my question was to do Quad core. for another 40.00 bucks I could get a Athlon 2 x 4 2.8 again, I am an intermediate user,,,not super advanced...thats why I am on this forum...would the 40.00 bucks be well spent..and do I just go with AMD? Thank you, Otto

  3. I think your answer makes allot of sense..but, I am trying to keep my budget 500.00 and under the i5's are going to be out of the price range... I am now looking at an AMD Athlon 2 2.9ghz dual core also for 40. 00 bucks more, I could get an Athon 2 x 4 2.8 I am an intermediate user...I need help deciding...I appreciate the advice I am getting here...

    of the two go with the 1156 and an i5-750 or i5-760 CPU. the other i5 are dual core CPUs and the 750 & 760 are quad giving you faster video editing time. you can use the site below to look at video editing times with various CPUs

  4. Depending on how much video editing you do and what software you use, the Athlon II X4 would be well worth the $40 over the Athlon II X2.

    With that budget AMD is your only option, you can get an Athlon quad core CPU for quite a great price and easily stay within budget if your GPU is not expensive you will have a nice inexpensive video editing computer with that budget
