Yes, because a new mobo and DDR3 RAM doesn't cost any money.

920 is not under $300.

At $300, critical point to be made. Additionally Intel motherboards cost more, and aren't as good unless you go with the really expensive ones.

Let me go on to say that I am glad for the overclocking results the P2 is achieving. I just get a little ticked when people think the i7 is monstrously expensive and can't clock just as well if not better (with lower voltage to boot).

Was not Saying that what you said was fanboy talk. Sorry for not putting that more clearly .

Just tired of all the Intel fanboys and AMD fanboys going at it.

Amd has a new chip, great, Intel fan or AMD fan, if it is a good chip it will help us all in terms of pricing.

Considering that you have a new P6T mobo whereas many people already have AM2+ mobos, I'm expecting more people to make the move to P2 and plan on AM3 further along the upgrade path. This is the matching Gigabyte 790GX that I could find: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...gabyte%20790gx

The X58 is a really awesome chipset, but buying an X58 mobo is like spending on 2 mobos to have both SLI and CF.

Wow dude, what is wrong with you i7 supporters? The processor might be under $300, but why do you not factor in the outrageous RAM and motherboard costs? Granted that they will come down in time but as of now, cost of an i7 setup >> cost of a Phenom II setup. The price delta widens even more if we consider an upgrade from current-gen platforms in the respective camps.

Disclaimer: I think I will go for an i7 setup come February.

EDIT: Too slow

Actually, the i7 920 is 1 cent under $300 in the link you posted lol

So what will you say when the AM3 boards and Phenom II CPUs come out which are also DDR3 only, and only dual channel (not that triple makes a difference in games though)?

You are basing that off a single site. A single site that is selling it at $299.99 with free shipping. It can be had for cheaper as well, see redalert's post, and this:
