triple channel means having 3 banks (6 slots), but that only comes in x58 MOBO. when I've been told to use p67 mobo...now i'm confused lol

The only boards that support triple channel memory are the x58 boards and those only allow the high end i7 and not the 1155 sockets/h2 uses the p67 boards.

I was told that i7 only like triple channel and not dual?

to run solid-works, and Auto-cad you need a true "workstation" Video Card, not a Gaming Card. Look for a Nvidia Quadro Video Card. To run more than 4 GB of memory You "must" Run a 64 Bit OS! 32 Bit OS's Will only support 4 GB Ram
Get as Much Memory as you can afford, as well as the Best Processor you can afford, and as Much Hard Drive Space as you can...

Look at this Chart from Nvidia http://www.nvidia.com/page/quadrofx_family.html This will help you with choosing the Right Video Card...

Intel announced the other day there is a defective chipset for the SATA port. It only affects the II and not the new III that is on the boards. Unfortunately that chipset is on every single 1155 motherboard so nothing is available from the big retailers. I'm doing a Sandy Bridge build (get the rest of my stuff tomorrow) and ordered one of those boards. Luckily I placed the order hours after they got word of the defect. I went back to Newegg not a couple hours after I placed my order and everything 1155 related was removed from their site. Even the processors. Good thing is I have no plans on using the SATA II ports so it's no big deal. Intel said the boards should be out around April with the new fix. Anybody who bought one with the defective chipset will get a new replacement.

Oh, they did send me this along with the Email regarding the replacement. Probably could have saved some time had I remembered this video before I posted.:rolleyes:

I would hold off on anything SandyBridge for a few months if not forever...........Its been recalled like a bad toyota and they are scrambling just the same
Laptop companies are refunding money,MOBO companies and getting crushed and and NewEgg pulled SB off the shelf.......

AMD on the other hand just slashed prices in a big way ,30 bucks or so a CPU - 6 cores for 175 bucks and up
your only other intel choice now is go back to first gen i5 i7 intel (i5 760/ i7 950)

I just got a Sandy Bridge setup going, it's phuckin quick compared to the old P4 2.4 ghz. I'll just do their little work around and use it till replacement boards are available. Only have the one SATA drive in the system so it's not hurting me at all. On Newegg's forum they have a thread going with info about the problem. All sorts of people are whining about thermal paste replacement of all things. You can pick up a tube of that at Radio Shack for next to nothing and that little tube will last a long while.
