Re: So who and why Sandy Bridge?
I just bought an i7-2600k, ASUS P8P67 Pro, 8GB Corsair XMS PC3-1600 RAM, and a Swiftech Apogee XT waterblock for my current gaming rig in my signature. The Q9650 just wasn't it anymore in most games with both my 460 FTW cards. Let's see if I can hit 5GHZ now!
I will post pics and benches once I get everything. Right now, I only have the CPU ($279 at Micro Center).
