I personally won't buy into nehalem yet.  Why? Remember how great core 2 duo was.  Yeah, then they started glueing two dies together for a quad-core.  Who wouldn't like an 8 core with HT.  Add Johnsburg chipset (my imaginary skulltrail motherboard for core i7 and you get 16 real cores and 16 virtual.  Yeah, I thought you'd like that.

'Cause I'm hoping to upgrade my current box on the relatively cheap.

Mwave.com has them for less. http://tinyurl.com/6ebafj $289 / $575 / $1,039
It will be interesting to see the prices/combos over the next 2-4 weeks.

Well, i7 sure is tantalizing...but the need for X58 and DDR3 saddled with an ecomomic outlook in the tank mean waiting a bit would be more than prudent.

Newegg now has the X58 boards up.

I'm glad Intel sells budget/slightly outdated chips. At those prices, I would have to stick with my pentium 3 for a few more years.

There are Core i7 prices (Including the Intel X58) in the most recent Tiger Direct catalogue I received late last week.

 

Intel DX58SO: 299.99

Core i7-920: 329.99

Core i7-940: 649.99

Core i7-965: 1,149.99

 

Can you say EXPENSIVE?

A MSI X58 Platnuim from Newegg.com sells for $220.  Add some cheap triple chanel corsair RAM (3 GB / 1333 mhz / latency of 9) for $130.  Add a $320 CPU for $670 and you're not off too bad.  Heck, throw in a GTX 260, and a PC Power and cooling 610 for $80 after the rebate, and $175 after the rebate.  Throw in an X-Fi xtreme gamer for $91, a Caviar 640 GB drive with 32 mb of cache for $85.  Add Vista for $100, an Antec 900 for $100, and an optical drive for $30. Done. Finished. Fait. Termine. Hecho. Terminado. Awsome gaming computer for under $1300 bucks.  If you want more buy a motherboard with SLI support and buy a second GTX 260, or buy duall 4850s, or even a GTX 280.

Benchmark that, Max PC!

(It would beat the living daylights out of your most recent $1500 PC.)

(Sure, GTX 280 beats GTX 260, but DDR3 and core i7 makes up for that)

Well, I personally can't afford to build a system (of that magnitude, anyway) right now...  But I get to basically put together one for a friend who has been wanting a new machine (I told him to wait for i7).  So I'll get to do a complete system build with one of these guys in about a week.  The proc.-o-choice is the 940...  And I'd like to point out that my prediction for the pricing on that part on Newegg is exactly one cent lower than I predicted...  If only that prediction were written down somewhere...  Heh.

As I was looking over this article I remembered....I got my usual Tiger Direct catalog in the mail the other day, and in the processor section was the three new Core i7 processors.  I thought it was strange since I didn't think they were out yet (which they aren't...) and nothing on the catalog said anything otherwise.  I went to tigerdirect.com and found out that they didn't have the processors on the website.  But they are in the catalog, with the prices and everything.

Hell I'm still fantasizing about a q6700.  Will prolly settle for the 6600 tho.  I am not gonna buy an i7 anytime soon because I would have to buy a new motherboard and memory.  Since I am more than happy with my 680i, I see no reason to want a new motherboard in light of how much it will all cost.  I like being married and she was mad because I got a Kandalf LCS Silver for $290.

Any idea if these prices will go down for black friday?  Or will intel just keep them high cuz they're brand new?

You're kidding, right?

hmmm, the local computershop has been selling the core i7's for over a week now. All i remember is that the Core i7-920 was selling for just over $400 (cdn) and they had already sold out of the Core i7-965, i was tempted to get one but that ment new mobo+ram... and i just couldn't cost justify it
