I don't know who to believe anymore. :shadedshu I think I'll be going to Intel for a while. 1155 sounds like it has an upgrade path (Ivy) and it simply does its job. I played Brink multiplayer tonight and it was annoyingly choppy most of the time, even with a 4GHz PII X4 and an overclocked HD 5770. Crappy console port or not, it's still pretty lame that BD has trouble competing against PII X6 processors, so I don't feel it would be much of an upgrade.
