see that u already have enough money for x58 i would go for the x58 more performance than the p55 , and its future proof i think that intel has stop the development of the 1156 but continued with the development of the 1366 there are some 6 core i9 or something releasing in some time,so i guessing u should go with the x58.

BTW where helll did you hear about them stopping the development of 1156? They just released another chip line "recently". Intel invested alot of money into LGA1156. They wouldn't just drop it or stop development like that. Probably just a rumor. Links please..

 

i7 880 is coming out this year along with more i5's. Totally not true

The Prolimatech Megahelem is the best cooler on the market right now, although that Notchua isn't bad

Then go for the 920 setup with these (Just using Newegg as a reference)

 

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD5

 

Memory: G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

 

OR

 

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

I give a thumbs up for the Noctua heatsink! It is the best I have tested so far by far. Plus it does not come with the noise penalty associated with high end air cooling. 4.2GHz on my i7 920 prime stable with the maximum temperature seen of 71C with no noise?
