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.

You will also get quad channel memory with the 2011 instead of dual channel memory with the 1155 (more PCIe lanes too for your rendering). m 0 l timarp000 a b à CPUs February 2, 2013 3:12:19 PM yes, go with 2011. you dont need a 3970X n all.
