Well, if the i5's do end up being better than i7 that's ok, at least I won't need to run the furnace this winter...

Wait a second.. I can get similar computer performance to what I have now, 6 months down the road for slightly reduced cost? Wow... what a load of my mind that was.. I never knew such a thing happened..

Computers getting old and phased old is like death. We all know it's coming and it's inevitable, but everyone freaks out when you know EXACTLY when it'll happen.

think of it this way,

I7 for peeps that want the best in PC tech

I5 for regular peeps that only want to get there hands on a PC

as for myself, a freakin dual core at 2.0ghz is enough for my daily needs But it is fun to try to overclock it to the max

So jealous of you I7 owners but then again if i had what you guys run, i don't know what to do with it, maybe just run some F@H

wish i had that kinda money to blow

I have decided to go ahead to build my i7 920. Got most parts, except for the i7 920 D0 stepping which is hard to find. Price is coming down, too. So, I'll go hunting for a D0 before it all disappear, and discontinued.

I know that, but wanted to hunt for one locally, just to make sure there is no mistake.
