Get the i7-875k, it has an unlocked multiplier allowing for some amazing overclocking, and there 32nm I believe, nope, there 45nm, ZE PICTURES LIED!

EDIT: It's the 665K thats 32nm.

i7-875k, unlocked multiplier and 1156 mobos are cheaper plus you wont have to buy triple-channel RAM.

Still 45nm, they are binned 870's with a unlocked multi, very good chips.

i cant decide. im unsure of the i7-875k overclocks so far. There doesnt seem to be much of an indictation what they will usually clock to.

I am also unsure if the 1156 will go with the six core cpus at some point. It seems like the 1366 will have some 6 core cpus available in case i want to upgrade.

Rumors say that intel is unveiling a new socket anyways.

Where in Madison do you live?

3.6GHz for T frequency compared to 3.06GHZ for the 930

200 bucks for that 875 is a steal
