Bought this at £220 from Scan December last year!

Am I being blind, I can't see what socket in the description?
#3
1366

Is this any good for a gaming PC?
Or should I wait for the newer Sandybridge models, I have a budget of £600 and this CPU seems like a good price.

This would be great for gaming, but I'd get the 2600k.

I need[ed] this big time for Uni work (3DS Max, Vray) due to my piece of anul juice PC at present, so was going to buy a new i7 chip but for £200. This is a good price!!

Instead I just paid £800 for a new DELL with i7 2600K, 12GB Ram, ATI 5770 HD card. Trust me... it was the cheapest option.

Waste of time the socket will be dead like the 1156 in a few more months and can be beaten by second gen i5 2500k for less money and overclocks further aswell there is no reason to buy this at all not for a new build or as a upgrade from the 920/930.

cold the price will drop further and further over the coming weeks.

As a 1156 owner I feel like I was screwed over. At least 1336 lasted a little longer...

#10
id go for a i5 2500k

2nd generation Sandy Bridge is better by all means,and nearly the same price.
Waste of money on i7 950..
#12
Never buy anything what uses old socket - no chance of upgrade in future.
Yes I know it is almost every year - new CPUs with new sockets.
#13
I'm still on the Q6700, does everything i need it too.. lol

Re Q6700.

Spot on. Feels great that I've not had to upgrade in nearly four years now. I do keep getting the bug, mind.

I agree. The 1366 still has the edge for some specialist workload - especially memory hungry numeric computing and databases. But for most purposes, 1155 is already better, and I am sure the 1366 is dead before long. Most games are not multi-threaded, so you are much better off with a 2x00k.

Yeah, I dont see much point. Unless a CPU comes out that is worth the money, for that it would need to be atleast twice as fast overall. Until then, i wont bother. Had it been 4 years down the line, I would of snapped the latest one up though.

I paid about 160 for the q6700 3/4 year ago.

In comparison to this via toms hardware, the Q6700 is 12189, and this is 15682.

tis a hot deal, but not that much progress in 4 years.

I've never known anyone to buy a new cpu for their system, buy the best mobo+cpu (mid to high range) combo and switch the graphics is what I tend to do. And considering if you have a 1366 board, you most likely have a 920 which this 950 doesn't offer many advantages over.
