What socket to go for

Hi there guys

I am new to this forum, and i would like to ask a question , help me decide...

I am currently thinking of what to jump from socket 1156, to 1155 or 1366

ASUS Sabertooth X58 + i7 970


BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 + i7-3770

Price difference from these 2 are really low, but ASUS + i7 970 is used board ( no warranty ), and biostar + i7 3770 is new ( 2 - 3 years warranty )

Need a nice MB and CPU for 3d modelling, animations, video editing, etc.

I can't say anything bad about Biostar ( still use Biostar TH55 XE ) and i am huge fan of biostar since it's really cheap

More about what socket
  1. BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 + i7-3770 :)

    there is no reason to go with old i7 920
  2. btw you should consider this cpu


    and pair it with BIOSTAR TZ77XE3
    much more appropriate for professional work
  3. Well i really like warranty and brand new stuff, so that's my first choice as well. Thanks for Your opinion u kinda made my decision easier.
  4. To be honest with u, i live in Bosnia, and i cant find that CPU anywhere... ordering that cpu from germany, or other county would take long time.. but i think this cpu could do the work.
  5. One more thing, is socket 1366 that much better cause of triple channel, six core cpu's etc ?
  6. actually tripple channel is a gimmick, no plus at all 920 is 4 core cpu

    trust me, newer cpu is always better in performance/power
  7. oh you are talking about 970 :)
    sprry, i misread this whole thing....

    i cant decide which one....
    6 cores is sweet for 3d work
  8. me neither... but hate buying old stuff without warranty...
