I'm inclined to agree, actually. Fact is, i7 was basically an opportunity for people to play with a (slightly) server-spec chipset and processor, getting those tiny little extra gains that were to be had. I mean, what kind of desktop setup actually needs triple-channel memory?

[/shrug] I knew that when I spent the money. Besides, the boards offered were fantastic, and the 920's a great proc, and the couple bucks for the SLI license wasn't too bad. The real money pit was what a lot of people paid for their memory, and that's just how things have always worked.
