don't get me wrong I love the 1090T too, the whole platform is cheaper than X58 and gaming is the same experience, its just you have an X58 now...
X58 and i7's are to overboard for what i need (gaming being the main priority). It's a very rock solid platform, but it's really something not meant for what i like to do, sure, it excels in gaming immensely, but there is still a lot of untapped power that's being pushed behind because it's not being taken advantage of. There is no point in me keeping the Enzo Ferrari around if im just going to be driving it around the block every once in a while. That's why i figured i'd just sell it off and go with a different/cheaper platform this time around.
Plus... I like playing with new hardware.
