I already have it.

I'd like to upgrade it due to the fact that it's SB600. Even though Phenom II's don't really need ACC, I'd still like to go with an SB750. But the budget is pretty tight.

Voted one coz of the cpu
If the 710 would be Mount Blanc, the 720 would be the Everest. There's just no comparison possible between the 2, the 720 being way better.

On the other hand, the NB on the UD4 is way better than the one on the DS3 so...


Edit : Since you already have the DS3, definitely go for option 1, and wait for a few weeks before getting a new mobo with am3 socket and some ddr3

Agreed, You already have the mobo, for now roll with the 720 and save a lot of money. Shoot, all you're needing is to save up the little difference between the two chips and you'll have the 720 with the better board ;-)

Granted it got too popular too quick and the 720 is OP right now on the egg. If you're dead set on buying it now and not waiting for them to bring it back to MSRP, at least get it from buy.com and have it for $150!

save for another week and get exactly what you want... buy the processor you want then pick up the board when you get the extra cash!

The egg is victim of its success and thus trying to make a few extra bucks off the new toy available on the market. Kinda what you'd expect from companies like Intel or Microsoft but not from Newegg

They're just gonna lose customers over this...

Pao's right btw, buy.com seem to have the cheapest 720 as far as online resellers go.

Shift, it seems you and I are about to jump on the same bandwagon at the same time... And i just thought that I would let you know, but the 720 BE is $149 on newegg right now, and I'll likely be snatching one up real quick.

I'm getting the 720 BE rather than a new board and the 710, because I think that I would rather wait for the new AM3 Chipsets, and upgrade to that later on down the line.

Good luck with whatever you do though... and know that I'm likely in the same boat.

You can't imagine how much I was looking forward to this!

This has REALLY changed my choices.. Substantially. Thanks again!

And best of luck to you with your build as well.

Okay, the thing is - I need to get a motherboard anyways, as I'm making a rig for a family member. I figured I'd get the 790x, and give him my 770-DS3.

I need to do some hunting on the egg.
