    i7 1156 is quicker than the i7 1366 at the same clock for everything cpu related but memory bandwidth.

    if u get something like an 860, it will get more PPD than a 1090
    p2 1090t, m4a89td pro, 2x2GB corsair elpedia
    2x samsung 500gb(raid 0) SBA2 plat pro antec p180B corsair 750tx
    beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80ohms headphones (they are like wall hacks for your ears)

    An i7 860 will get more PPD than a 1090T? Can I see this?

    I was looking at the one Miah had and was wanting to know if he still had it. I also thought Neuro had one for sale. This will not be overclocked and I will be looking for minimum voltage on it as well. I am mainly think about it for encoding anyway but I have noticed that the better it crunches the better it encodes. If this were a bang for the buck thing or an overclocking thing I would go AMD all the way. I have a lot of movies I need to take care of.
