Hi everyone,

I am planning on buying Sandy Bridge (i5 2500k). In comparison with AMD six core, its performance seems to be much better (using benchmarks on AnandTech as a reference and feedbacks from various forums and friends). Would really appreciate if anyone can post their feedback and opinions on the same.

I would definitely go for a SB i5 2500k because you will have more upgrade options later on.And its a newer architecture that with 32nm architecture it is better at overclocking and better at absorbing and handling information.

Thanks zulfadhli ... And i do agree with you about Ivy Bridge although I have heard its based on 22nm architecture compared to 32nm SB. Still am more keen on Sandy Bridge

2500K is a fine CPU for general usage and gaming, and beats out the Thubans by a pretty wide margin, though depending on your usage you might be interested by Z68.

However, if you can wait longer and/or want AMD, Bulldozer, out around June, could turn out to be something nice.
