Need Just A Little Help

Postby skippyboy » Tue Jun 01, 2010 11:04 pm

Most of my shopping list is done before I head back in two weeks, but a month ago the wife's ASUS P6TD Deluxe LGA 1366 Intel X58 board died. I think it was a dude to began with it was plagued with memory problems from the start. I'll RMA it back to them when I get home and more than likely use it as a spare. In the mean time she has been using my ASUS P7P55 WS SuperComputer, 1156 i7-860 Lynnfield, 8GB DDR 1600, and a Radeon HD 5870. She is very happy with the way it runs the chemistry cad programs. So I'm down two two choices after I get her a SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100281-2GVXSR Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 2GB.

Transfer the 1366 i7-960 Bloomfield into a ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution with NF200 ... 6813131358 I have 2 different matched 6 X 2GB sets of Corsair ram. (1 DDR3 1600 and 1 DDR3 1333)

Or Get
Intel Core i7-875K Lynnfield 2.93GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Unlocked Desktop Processor ... 6819116368

ASUS P7F7-E WS SuperComputer LGA 1156 Intel 3450 w/ NVIDIA NF200 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ... 6813131648

Noctua NH-U9B SE2 92mm SSO CPU Cooler ... 6835608016

for myself and give her my stuff. Decisions, decisions. Regardless I'm jumping on the 1156 i7-875K Lynnfield and do a Bios upgrade for the P7P55 WS SuperComputer. Looks promising for her line of work after I read some reviews.

Other than 2 HD 5870's, and 2 HD 5770's (thanks fuss) I'm done.
