Default go with a build like this or sandybridge build

so im in a little dilemma i really need a new pc and have been going back and forth with alot of things now with sandy bridge announced it makes things that much harder i dont know if i should build a pc based on that or what i was going to do this is my first pc build and im struggling to finalize

is it worth going with sandy bridge? which processor in the lineup should i go for that would be equal to my current layout here?...when will the motherboards and processors be available on sites such as newegg?

Yha go sandybridge.

the 2600k is suppose to be $319, same as a 950, and performs, so far, way better. Almost 5Ghz on air with about the same power usAge.

Btw I just bought a 950 too!

so if i go with a p67 board is there integrated graphics on that at as well?..im going to get a separate video card i figure thats better in case i decide to do different stuff later on plus the other boards i think you cant overclock so i might do that as well in the future



if theres integrated graphics on that board do i have to turn it off in some way when using a separate gpu?

i read this in pcworld article

"The Core i7-2600K comes with a new fan–heat sink unit similar to the one introduced with the Core i7-980X last year, and that requires a special bracket to be installed underneath the motherboard; this is easy if you're assembling a system from scratch, but not if you want to replace a chip in one you've already built."

can anyone show me a video or exactly explain how this brack is install as i said this is my first build and like to be prepared dont want to run into any problems when im installing things..also does this processor come like the 950 with the thermal paste already applied or do you have to do it your self?

Its just a back plate that any decent cpu heat sink comes with. Its used as the assemblys heavy and you bolt/screw the heatsink and fan into it.

I doubt anyone can honestlty answer if it comes preapplied as no one here has seen one yet, but odds are it will.

Oddly, no one will be replacing a 1155 chip as no one can buy one yet.... so no one has an exisiting 1155 setup.
