    T0 990x OR NOT?

    T0 990x OR NOT TOO IS THE QUESTION?

    I have been offered a very good deal on this i7-990X + DX58SO2 Extreme Series Bundle >£400

    As Bulldozer is being delayed I had decided to postpone my build until after Christmas,to let the dust settle & get on the band wagon of some new tech / socket.

    I would very much appreciate your thoughts, as I see it:-

    Pro's
    Price
    Capabilities of cpu.

    Con's
    MOBO,I have not heard of it, very little in the way of reviews apart from (Good MOBO, Complex bios)
    Skt 1366 to be supperseaded by Skt 2011 soon.
    Longevity

    I use my computer for Photo processing /rendering images (60%) Gaming (40%) I use 20Mb raw files also HDR images & Photoshop, Lightroom, Etc
