Its rather funny.
Yes it is
For example Lagoom.com is offering a free pen with purchase of their quads. LOL!
I am ususally an AMD man, but I am ready for an upgrade. I do not know much about Intel's processors, especially when overclocking them. I have read and listened to guys like Nasgul (among many others) and decided to pre-order a quad thru TankGuys.com. These guys been around this a long time and I trust their judgement.
Also, when I begin my overclocking adventure and run into a snag, this forum is the first place I am gonna hit up for tips
I also believe the G0 stepping is gonna be a great overclocker due just by reading its specs. I think it will be worth the wait. Before I joined this forum I planned on ordering my quad as soon Newegg dropped theirs under $300, which would have been today. Now I have to wait LOL!
