Default I'm bored..so I was thinking of a new build...

Well, I really like my qx9650 and Rampage Extreme and asus 4870x2 with my Mushkin ram, but I'm bored...miss building good powerful rigs instead of the cheapos all the time. So I was thinking :

I7 920
Rampage2Extreme (maybe)
Crucial Tripple Value D9JNM (maybe)

Just wondering if it's really worth the move to the i7.

If you bored and have cash - yes. Otherwise - I'd say no.

Recent Core 2 Quad -> Core i7 isn't really that big of a jump, bro. I echo Dazmode on this one, if you can afford it and you want to do it, by all means.

The Rampage is a good board, but I'd suggest checking out EVGA's offerings as well (if you haven't already). While being a relative newcomer to the motherboard scene, their wares are really top-notch.
