Where to buy intel i7 880 processor

To whom it may concern, I have looked all over and cannot find a single place to purchace the Intel i7 880 processor, so do you know of any place where it can be found to buy. however I have seen it in pre built computers but not the precessor alone because that is what I want, so do you know where it can be purchased; just the processor itself.

  2. Hi spiderman234, Welcome to THW.

    There are very few sites with that chip available, maybe 3-4, you may have to have a trusted store order one for you, or.... May I ask why you want to buy such an expensive and hard to find chip when you can get one for much less that performs almost the same? i7-880 vs. i7-950

    Is the lower tdp really worth that much?
  4. ^Thats the question I was asking also, its not in my eyes, but maybe the OP has thier reasons for choosing that particular CPU.

    Thank You for that information, but I thought that they were already available because this site has it for a pre-order

    that is because the Motherboard I have is an LGA 1156 and the next best i7 processor that fits that socket is the is the i7 775k
  7. Ok, I understand. Makes sence to me now. Have you considered selling the motherboard and buying am x58 socket 1366 or maybe a sandy bridge in January? With that kind of spending your could do either quite easily.

    Possibly, but I haven't seen to many good hi performance motherboards with the proper configuration, because most of the new motherboards have too many PCI-E slots, and I only use one graphics card. however I always buy gaming motherboards because they are the best for hi performance.
  9. What's wrong with the i7-870?

    And i agree with chief, it would be a good investment to wait until Sandy Bridge comes out, that's if you can hold up intime :)
  10. Wow I feel like such a newb some days hahaha

    Well with the x58, I think you find those are the top boards out there right now and most if not all x58's have two x16 PCI-E slots because that is a selling point of the i7/x58 chipset. I think if you euse the 1156 motherboard you have along with an i5-760/P55 chipset I belive will still give you great performance at a even cheaper price, that is unless your are not happy with the motherboard/featured that are on the 1156 board that you have. Do you already have a 1156 CPU and your not happy with it or just a motherboard?

    I think you may mean the 875K:

    Almost all P55 based motherboards will have overclocking capabilities that will get you to high levels safely.
    All motherboards will perform about the same, performance is determined by the cpu.
    All of the i7 chips are basically the same, differing in the starting multiplier. Depending on the quality of the chip your max OC may vary.

    What exactly will the cpu be used for?

    what is the difference between the sandy bridge chips and the current intel i7 chips that makes them better, and when are they going to be available

    No I havent purchaced any new hardware yet but want to upgrade my computer ASAP and the motherboards I usually get are ASUS motherboards which are among the best, but I just dont know which motherboard to buy, or if I should try a different brand. however that is a problem because I am only familliar with ASUS which are very good for overclocking and stability, and Hi performance, but too many of them have far too many PCI-E slots and no standard PCI slots which I need for my wireless modem and sound card

    Yes I did mean the intel i7 875k, and the reason I was considering a P55 motherboard is because I always use ASUS motherboards which are the best for stability, overclocking, and hi performance, and I only found one with an acceptable configuration, because most motherboards have too many PCI-E slots and I just use one graphics card, and two other components that require standard PCI slots. However, I am a Graphic Artist, which requires alot of multitasking and use adobe CS5 design premium along with After Effects, so to do all of the work with those programs requires a high performance motherboard, CPU, and graphics card. however I am also a student majorin in Information Technology so my system needs to be hi performance. but the problem is that I am only familliar with ASUS motherboards, so I am not sure what others or if others are as good as ASUS.
  16. The other major player is Gigabyte, and they are good also. I have also used ECS with a H55 mini-itx board, and it's quality was much better than I expected.

    Thanks, But I think I found a good board it's an Asus Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 Intel X58, and it has a very good sound chip so I will only need one standard PCI slot for my wireless modem, and can just forget about using my sound card.
