    Default Help with this system update

    Hi Guys,
    Just a quick question: Im planning to update my I7 x58 rig P6T mobo 1st version.
    with the upcoming release of the new generation i7-processors and the socket 2011 if im not mistaken (correct me if im wrong)

    im seeing a lot of cheap 2nd hand Rampage extreme III on sale in trading websites. 333 dollars from $500 (converted from ph peso to dollar)

    i was wondering if its wise and economical to upgrade my setup with high end x58 mobo to maximize and extend the life my of x58 system or just wait for the new socket which will probably cost more since i need to replace mobo and proc as well?

    Thank you so much for the input guys

    i would wait a while longer and see what happens,might see a drop in p67/z68 and 2500/2600k mb's/chips prices too as everyone will be wanting the new 2011 socket

    biggest problem with x58 and 920/930 is heat,unless your watercooled,newer chips run alot cooler on higher overclocks so if i were you i wouldnt spend anymore money on x58 platform
