Default Re: New PC, looking for a direction!

Is the LGA 1155 socket still going to be upgradeable for awhile? I saw the really high end CPU from intel is using LGA 2011. Also, the 2600k + z68 chipset looks like an awesome combo. Is ASUS still a great mobo company to buy from? In the past I have had great performance out of thier motherboards. Also, any suggestions on Brand and model of memory? I would be looking for tight timings with good OC'ing headroom on a FSB

Sorry for sounding noob... lol. Its quite literally been years sence I have built a system from the ground up other than a few upgrades to what I last built.
