Personally I do not need SB. I am hoping that i5-760 will be a little cheaper so I can grab one.

I'm going to be upgrading from a 775(Q6600 specifically) so I want to get something that can last longer. In terms of performance, how is the gigabyte P67 UD5 compared to UD7? Is it worth the extra ~$70?

Just settle for the UD4 if you don't plan on running a 3 card setup.

I see no reason to even waste money on a 1366 setup anymore.

SB Offers :

32nm > 45nm
95W TDP > 130W TDP
Lower Power consumption
Higher overclocking headroom
Unlocked

1366 is dead.. Long live the new king Sandy Bridge
BS. The X58 platform is legendary.

The Gulftowns run on 1366 and will soon have a new model 990x. They will lay waste to the 1155 mainstream socket which replaces the 1156 socket. The replacement to the 1366 comes with socket 2011 Sandy Bridge EP. Socket 1366 will be supreme till socket 2011.

If you are running a 1366 I7, this release should be a skip!

Jean-Luc, Intel should employ you in Marketing for this release! Count-down threads, 30 posts daily replying to any mention of this release, and probably a marriage date set for you and 1155.
If I was the product manager for this product, you would definitely be on the payroll!

If you need a computer right this moment, purchase the i7 950. If you do need a computer right this moment, purchase Sandy Bridge. Keep in mind, however, that later in 2011, Ivy Bridge is supposedly to be released. Thus, no matter what, there will always be something new coming out shortly after: the endless cycle of technology.

I understand that everyone is excited but let's put this into perspective. With SB you get higher overclocks and that's really about it. You lose PCI lanes which is important to people like me and you also lose triple channel memory. At best SB is a sidegrade if you value higher overclocks and don't care about multiple GPU setups but I'll reserve final judgement once credible benchmarks come in.

Jean-Luc, at first I thought you were just excited about SB but now it's obvious to me that you just like attention.
