they maybe over priced...but is their performance to be laughed at? i've had no problems with their performance...unless i'm missing something( u're the one who okayed a similar configuration about a year ago)?
But Sandy Bridge pretty much rubs the x58's face in the dirt, so.
idk about that. the specs i mentioned in my previous post...i'm having no problems with it infact i'm yet to run a game at max settings that actually utilizes even 50% of its capabilities. in any case every 3 months or so u'll always have a product rubbing some product's nose in the dirt.
When Ivy Bridge arrives early next year, both 1366 and current 1155 procs will be left in the dust.
yea...u're right. makes me think like i'm always a step behind with specs that r expensive and have a very short shelf-life.
I didnt say they performed badly, I said they are pricey for what is available. They should have dropped in price by now but haven't.
...yea i know...they should have done so by now but partly to blame for the pricing is the different tax/levy regimes of various countries too. i would never or have never dis-regarded or made fun off ur observations/advise...u know that
