Let me phrase it this way then, from a single GPU stand point, Sandy Bridge whoops the dog snot out of everything my X58 rig sitting right next to it can do with the same GPU. Pure fact, no way around it except to buy a CRAZY $800+ dollar CPU for multithreading workstation tasks or to play Civ 5

Can you not run sata 3.0 Hard drives on Sata 6.0 ports?

You absolutely, most certainly can. I'm doing so right now. No problems. One SSD, a Patriot Torqx 128Gb, and an HDD, a WD 1Tb Black, both happily cruising along, no complaints. The second SSD stays disconnected as a hot spare for the OS in case the SSD in use ever fails.

You have a short memory, don't you. I need another Rig to take to Lan parties as this one is just to heavy. Seeing as SB is so cheap (now we know why) it was what I was going to build. It wouldn't super-seed this one, just a backup.

That's actually what I plan to do. I'd like to build a PC that I can carry around with me. Here's one I spec'd out (minus the video card).

SANDY BRIDGE SHUTTLE PC

Case: RAIDMAX ICECUBE ATX-015B Black Aluminum MicroATX Desktop Computer Case $70
Memory: Corsair XMS 4GB DDR3-1333 Ultra Stable $50
Motherboard: ASUS P8P67-M LGA 1155 Intel P67 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard $130
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo) $190

TOTAL: $440

Little thing packs a punch for $440.

Yeah something along those lines would be great.

Yean man, I was only having a dig at Intel with pricing point.

I'm hoping for a price drop on this "broken" chipset ,That would be great.

The problem is they are nearly impossible to find so the prices have actually gone up. I'm building a second SB system for my brother, and it took me forever to find a place that had the P67 boards in stock and at a reasonable price.

Pretty much every site, including Ebay, is sold out, backordered, or charging an arm and a leg so I doubt you want to see any discounts, unless you want an H67 board, which are still in decent supply and much cheaper.

Sorry, we were talking about the new boards with the fixed Sata 2 issues. They aren't due until April. I wouldn't buy a board now as you will have to RMA it when the new boards come out.
