|I'm customizing a new PC from parts I find on Newegg.com. The trouble I'm having is choosing between LGA 1156 and LGA 1366 sockets. I have decided on Intel, however.|
Tomshardware.com says that X58 Northbridge MOBOs are not my best bet, but the Sandy Architecture (such an EVGA 123-LF-E653-RX LGA 1156 mobo) is the best bang for my buck, and so I'm thinking that 3 years from now, when I upgrade my CPU, I'll be glad that's what I got. They could be wrong though.
I've decided on an ASUS GTX 570 graphics card, and this is also a consideration. I need a MOBO and CPU that can take full advantage of how awesome the 570 is.
If I can spend less and get the i5, I'll do it, but if the i7 is better in the long run, and better now, I want to jump on the x58, socket 1366 bandwagon. This isn't an easy choice. Can you help me?
