I bought a AMD 1090T when it first came out, and i'm still using it! Its still super fast and Im very happy with it.

I really want PCI Express 3.0 for future, so I dont think I will be buying the new AMD chips unless in the next month they come out with it.

But I heard the PCI-E 3.0 only gives about 3 FPS better performace, and only the newer graphic cards support it. My GTX 580 currently does not, and I wasnt going to upgrade it just yet - as it is still pretty good.

So maybe a AMD is in my near future, as I can get the whole system $600 cheaper then the Intel Verison

Decisions Decisons!!!!!!! UGGG

just thought i would add...the cpu is fantastic! i am using the AMD Phenom 1090T and value for buck Intel cannot go near them...your choice is brilliant and i will be upgrading with that soon...like yourself i also have a thermaltake case however the one you have chosen is nothing short of the best of them all! you will love that case (my brother has one) just make sure the power supply is a thermaltake TP of at least 1000w and nothing could better that either... (man its fun spending someone elses money) lol :D

the decision is easy...AMD AMD AMD......why give intel all the profits when AMD is every bit as good at 1/2 the price.
your system is super good now nand i am sure you can wait for what you want...i know i can :)
as you said your cpu is already super fast and can handle what you are doing now already... :D

Well I cant decide yet, so I got this now - will decide on MOBO, CPU, and Ram

http://screensnapr.com/v/m9FGx2.png

I want to get either:
I7-3930, ASUS Rampage IV MOBO, GSkill 16GB Ram 2133 speed (quad channel) About $1130
or
AMD FX-8350, ASUS Crosshair V, 16GB Ram 2133 speed (dual channel) About $560

well...the i7 is nice (although i am stubborn with companies ripping people off like apple Vs samsung) value for money still goes to the AMD set up :) i did a lot of research and it amazes me how you even choose the same keyboard :D good choice :) the only one problem with the black widowit is that late at night with the wife sleeping it is a little noisy with the clicking of the keys...Kos...at the end of the day with the AMD you have another $600 you can spend on something else...and with what you are doing i guarantee the AMD system will cope without faltering :) the first AMD system i built was back in 1998 and i used the AMD A7v mainboard which at the time was the best of the best :) i have never changed my mind about using AMD and will always do so :)
Hope this helps :)

Wellllllllll shit - I've always had AMD - always! since I started building PC's back in the early 90's. Never had Intel because they were expensive
and I was a broke Marine.

However - Since the site is doing really well and I can use it as a tax right off if I buy before the end of the year. I'm going to try Intel for once!

I went ahead and bought: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231503

I got it for $105 delivered ($25 discount code).

So now I just need to save up for the mobo and processor :(

I will buy the mobo and processor at my local fry's electronics - because in the event I get a bad one I can take it right back without having to RMA to newegg and waiting.

Frys didnt carry the GSkill Memory, thats why I bought that from newegg - shit $100 for 16gb niiiice!

I guess it will take me < 30 seconds to compile the BF3 Full hack with the i7 :)

I ordered all my parts now. So in 2-3 days it all should be in............

Then I will be able to watch porn, Admin this site, Code hacks, and Encode BlueRay -> XVID at the same time :)

Damn, wish I would have seen this thread sooner. There was really no reason to switch to Intel. Sure, you want PCIe 3.0, but why?!? As it stands right now the best hardware available doesn't even make full use of the PCIe 2.0 slots in machines. A server may see some benefit from PCIe 3.0 because it will make use of the added bandwidth but I don't see home PCs ever doing it, especially when they couldn't do it with 2.0. I guess what I'm saying is that hardware manufacturers probably won't even make any hardware for home users that will realize the benefit 3.0 has to offer if they didn't do it for 2.0

As a side note, I believe AMD won't be offering 3.0 for another year. So, PCIe 2.0 will still be going strong by the time you need to build another PC. :D

I overclocked my 1090T and im still lucky with it :D All cores running at 3,7 ghz with deactivated turbo. My mainboard is not so well. With a better one you can overclock it to ~4ghz with no problems.

I totally Agree. I am thinking down the road with PCI-E 3.0 SSD's that will use the whole bandwidth. The Intel system was $650 more. I am going to give my GirlFriend and her son my old computer.

I'm using a Rampage IV, 3960x, 32gig of 2133mhz GSkillZ, AX1200 PSU, EVGA GTX 680, 2x Corsair 120gig SSD in RAID 0, and a H80 water cooler.

It runs pretty good :) I run overclocked at 4.7 daily while under volted. I can exceed 5ghz, but I don't like to over volt the shit out of my hardware.

Overkill? Yes.
crazy stuff....but great if you can afford it.... 4.7ghz and over with bf3? overkill? sure! but awesome stuff dude :)

You have a PCIe SSD card?!? Those things are crazy expensive but ridiculously fast. I believe those are currently the only piece of hardware that max out the PCIe 2.0 bandwidth. Currently though they don't have any SSD cards built to support 3.0. You did make sure that everything you purchased supported 3.0, correct?!? CPU + GPU + motherboard. You also made sure the motherboard has Ivy bridge?? Because it is the only true 3.0 support. Some of the board manufacturers have been misleading customers saying that there board is PCIe 3.0 compatible when if fact it is not because it is a Sandy bridge. Here is something to check out regarding the claims of PCIe 3.0 by some manufacturers that aren't true --> http://www.tomshardware.com/news/msi-gigabyte-pcie-gen3-mobo,13377.html

The link is a year old, so probably outdated, but something to be aware of.

Damn, wish I could be your girl's son. I bet the PC you are giving him is still some top notch shit! :D

Ok, I ordered another 16gb sticks, so I will have 32gb, and I ordered a SSD vertex 4 240gb, because with windows 8 my boot drive only has 20gb free (it was a vertex 3 120gb)
