I guess we all think that $300 motherboards and more expensive RAM for a processor that is only 5-10% faster don't make a whole lot of sense at the moment.
I'm going to wait out on i7 and see what AMD bring out..Also I really like my x48 board and I'm happy with the speeds. Plus I really need a car this summer so I think I have other priorities..
To be honest, I'm not expecting anything magical from AMD. They have yet to beat the current quad core models, let alone i7.
X48 is a nice board, you shouldn't have to upgrade for at least 2 years or so.
I'm just waiting to see what they bring out since they've done wonders with their ATI cards. Still I'm going to wait till maybe next year although I might get my hands on another 4870 if I can find one cheap.
Finally got confirmation on my Touch HD order, looks like i'll get it the day before Christmas
Very cool, but I have to admit I like the look of the last one you bought a bit better. Ballin' either way!
