the thing is the stores as well as the distributer or whatever it is called that provides the stores with the products, both of them agreed to sell and replace the boards once the new ones come out. I think that i should wait for a week or two and maybe intel says something about the release date..cause i think it is really annoying to put every thing together in a dream PC and then take the board out and put another one in..this is a bit tiring but, i have no other choice if the new boards will come out in april or may

I am so glad that i waited to hear from Intel, and i think the parts will be available in 3 weeks from now

I think you are underestimating the time it takes for a part to be shipped to a manufacturer, the manufacturing process, QA process, shipping to retailers, and product availability.

Intel said " it expects to ship .." not "we are going to ship .." what i understood that maybe intel delays the shipping date due to certain situations.

Even if they have the new chips in 3 weeks, there's still a bit of testing to do AND then the OEM's get their greedy little hands on them long before we do.

If you buy a board or if you HAVE a board, do not expect to see a replacement before April/May at the earliest.

This is a funny post, what issues does it have other than involved with this reissue business?

I had hopes to eventually mitigate my system to this platform, however that being said a Solid X58 build will see you well into another 2 years I think. There are still people getting very good gaming performance out of their 775 systems with either Q9550's or E8400's.

Personally speaking, unless you need the advantages of the better than average IGP or such, go X58 and then save up. And in two years time grab 2011 for cheap.

My thoughts,
ST
