My System Specs

Default i7 920 + MB + RAM for the cheapass

Well, I've been feeling the need (not really need though) to upgrade to i7. I was hoping I could get myself started off buying some used parts here. I'm looking for a full ATX motherboard and 6GB of RAM. I'm looking for around $375 + shipping or a bit more if needed. Once again, this isn't something I need so I don't mind waiting for something to show up. And I am indeed a cheapass, so don't try to sell me a Classified unless it's for under $250 . RAM timings is not an issue, hopefully trying to get something around 6GB of DDR3 1600 if possible.
Hopefully someone wants to dump their i7 stuff on me Thanks in advance.

The thing is i5 isn't much of an upgrade for me. I've been looking, but I think the i7 is at a better price/performance ratio at the moment.

why buy i5 when i7 are almost the same price?
JMO but I would go this route
NCIX.com - Buy Gigabyte EX58-UD3R ATX LGA1366 X58 DDR3 2PCI-E 2PCI SATA2 RAID Sound GLAN CrossFireX Motherboard - GA-EX58-UD3R In Canada.
NCIX.com - Buy MSI X58M X58 mATX LGA1366 DDR3 2PCI-E16 1PCI-E1 1PCI-E4 CrossFire SLI SATA2 GBLAN Motherboard - X58M In Canada.
NCIX.com - Buy G.SKILL F3-12800CL9T-3GBNQ 3GB DDR3 3X1GB DDR3-1600 CL 9-9-9-24 Triple Channel Memory Kit - F3-12800CL9T-3GBNQ In Canada.
NCIX.com - Buy Intel Core i7 920 Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.66GHZ Bloomfield 8MB LGA1366 4.8GT/S - BX80601920 In Canada.

or if you need a D0
NCIX.com - Buy Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.66GHZ Bloomfield 8MB LGA1366 -SLBEJ- - BX80601920 - D0 In Canada.

all new gear and won't cost that much more then 600$ mix and match or wait for some other sale. JMHO

I'd say i7 is about $130 to $160 more expensive than i5. I guess that would be "almost". For i7 most people go with 6GB kits not 3GB.
