New Build Tags: CPUs New Build Last response: February 2, 2013 3:12 PM in CPUs Share ConnorMc11 February 2, 2013 3:00:53 PM So, my old rig is coming on 6 years old and im thinking of doing a new build. my main question is do i spend the extra money to go socket 2011 and SB-E, or 1155 and ivy bridge. my only reasoning behind 2011 is that it would allows me to upgrade to IB-E in the future and not need to buy another motherboard. however, going 1155 and IB will save me the money to put into a SSD and better graphics. I do a lot of GoPro editing and CAD/Revit work, but also play games. what do y'all think?Clearly, Budget is question here, but if I'm not going to see a huge jump going to 2011 id rather not spend the money.
