you know, the people on here with the best OC's seem to own 680i boards.... i shoulda known

i agree.

in 2008 you'll get more use of them. at which point you'll be paying mainstream prices.

the transistors are getting so small that they're almost on the molecular level. it'd be more expensive for companies to produce and us to buy. we're reaching the limit of what a single core can do. oh, and some people (like most of us on here) simply want the best. and then there's the future-proofing arguement

it seems to me that the people with the best OC have a 680i board

imho the "best" is the "best" chip your PC and applications will actually utilise at the lowest price you can get it for. chuck a nice OC on top and you're laughing.

quad is still overkill for a lot of joe bloggs out there. my dual core sits about picking it's nose half the day!

Yes i know that people whant the best and that is fine,I also know that quads and dual cost more to make but its not going to hold up in the long run.If they spend the extra money now and invest in better cores then they would save the money that they spend on making duals and quads for the next few year.what am saying is spend more now and make a beter dual or quad core latter or end up smashing 6.8.10 cores in a CPU later on down the road.then you will see just how much it cost.

Same here,Also you talk about wanting the best but what will be of you quad core down the road when the do get to making it better.You will whant the best then and it will get used to it fullest where as the quad you have now will give you the same proformance that a E6700 dual core will becuase unless you whant to add some big numbers it is a wasts of 2cores.Intel is just whanted to be first in the "quad'' market and it cost them.AMD will come out with a real quad and intel will have to finaly spend that extra money on coming out with the real thing.Its about quality (IMO)
