For gaming the lga1155 platform is recommended.
Not to cast doubt on your expertise but why?
1155 support only 1 full speed PCI 3.
2011 upto 4
1255 support dual ram
2011 support quadro
ONLY problem for 2011 is fact that only SB CPU available atm. IB-E planned for Q3 2013. Sandy Bridge CPU do not officially support PCI 3 and USB BUT... unofficially NVIDEA has a fix for it
It does not work for all configuration and hence request for help. Is anyone run video in full PCI 3 on 2011? Can u recomend mobo/v-card?
