Upgrading from you current rig is again foolish if you don't do something extreme with it, even if you did game, what game you run that needs more power then your current setup. If you just have the extra cash and want to upgrade because the new hardware is on the market... what on earth you worrying about $10 for?

Well, and hate people that Rant about anything they dislike. And I hate even more people that come to a calm, nice question-answer thread and start a flame just beacuse he thinks his opinion is better then everyone's else but not being able to answer of help the OP. And then judge someone for their thoughts and the decicions they take with THEIR money. So please Either help or GTHAOH. On a little note, At least what I said was neither Guessing nor expeculations. And ther is the link up there. CHECK IT OUT before you leave.

Interesting artical but I'm not sure what to take from it. Has any of this helped sway in a direction?

Oh, and I like the way age ruler articulates himself.

Hey NoG, I'm in the same boat..not sure. I guess I'm going to wait til the Z68s hit the shelves and if I can get one from Asus or Gigabyte that has a direct connection from Mobo IO outputs to monitor I will get it and evaluate where to go from there.

I've been gettin' "over the top on this " and still I don't know....Patience I don't have

Age ruler is ok ...nickbaldwin86 likes to thread crap

The igp graphics with sandy bridge are a bit of a mess. They can't play a blue-ray dvd without skipping due to running at the wrong refresh rate, and of course they can't play even the most basic 3d game.

Hopefully the drop-in IB 1155 CPUs will have the blue-ray issue fixed, but I wouldn't be surprised if that requires a new chipset/MB.

The guys overseas @ VR-Zone are all concluding that the price will be same or a tad bit more than their P67 counterpart.

Here is a jizz-tastic unboxing of the Z68X-UD7-B3 to hold you down until next week :
