I'm starting to plan a new machine build and can't decide which socket to go with. I won't likely be running SLI but it's possible... Thoughts? I'm not a gamer, this machine would be a photo workstation more than anything else.

maybe he is an engineer or a graphic designer doing 3D stuff. but for photo editing sli is much of an ovekill. in the latter case, save that money and put it towards a good display, or lenses if you like

The difference in cash between each socket and the corresponding hardware would hardly be a drop in the bucket toward a new lens. And, like I said in the original post, I won't likely be using SLI (unless they actually make it functional for non-gamers). I wasn't asking about SLI. Nobody thinks the extra memory bandwidth is worthwhile? 64 bit Lightroom 3 doesn't take advantage of the hyperthreading and power of the i7s?

well the problem is, both of those will be obsolete by socket 1155 and 2011. in theory, if you can afford 1336 then go 1336 (i7 + triple channel do cost more $$$) otherwise 1156. performance per dollar is less with 1336, but you can go higher with it, and in theory it will more upgradeable consider there's quite an array of really high performance 1336 CPUs.

The principal reason to go with 1336 is if you want a hexacore processor. Even though the 1366 processors (Bloomfied) are competitively priced, and sometimes less, to the 1155 processors (Lynnfield), RAM is where it gets you. For me, 6 gb wasn't enough, but 12 gb was too much. One of the reasons I went with a 1155 system and 8 gb of RAM.

SLI is useless, and graphics/CAD use workstation cards. You probably don't want to buy two of those if you don't have to....

I would go with 1156. 1366 will be killed next year, so might as well go cheap now and pick up a more upgradeable setup next time you need an upgrade.

Do you have a link for 1366 being killed next year?

1156

I built one with an i7860 and a GTS250 video card (with SSDs and other stuff too) It's the ultimate image and video processor. Amazing speed. I have tutorials under the same user name on YT on how to OC it too if you care to.

You could also get by with a good 775 socket chip if you really want to save some $$. I have a good Core 2 Quad Q8400 and it works fine. Just a lot slower than the 860.

Good luck to you.

Ok, but you can make the same argument for 1156.

http://en.wikipedia.or​g/wiki/LGA_1155 (external link)

Honestly, I'd go with 1156 as it's a lot cheaper and just as fast unless you're really hammering your systems. You'd be better off spending the extra on an SSD, more RAM, more archival storage, etc. than a 1366 CPU & board (though this comes from the guy with two 6-core 3.33GHz 1366 boxes with a combined total of 30GB of RAM).

The logic I'm using here is one that's worked well for me over the years that I've built my own PCs. I get the entry level of the bestish platform available and then upgrade that mobo as I go along. For example, the 1136 procs that are now over a thousand bucks can be picked up much cheaper/used in a few years at a much more sane price. I'm currently using a 939 socket mobo that started with the entry level proc and a couple sticks of ram in 2004 which was slowly maxed out as I picked up bits here and there to upgrade. This is not what I use for photo editing, but happens to be the box I'm replacing-longish irrelevant story. Even though it's seven years old I wouldn't be replacing it if I didn't suspect a bad capacitor on the mobo for causing random lockups. Anyway, on topic, as far as I can tell, over time, which, as explained, is how I max out machines, the 1136 socket gives me a little more upgrade room in terms of proc and ram and the motherboards of that platform also seem to have a bit more room for upgrades.

I am well aware of the storage options and the advantages there for which I have a plan.
