About to order 2000$ i7 build

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
this is what im looking at


HAF X 199.99
P6X58D-E 239.99
I7 950 299.99
ASus 6950 299.99
megahalems 62.99
2 114.7 CFM panaflo fans 33.98
Sunbeam Rheobus Extreme 29.99
Corsair Force SSD 120GB 234.99
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 6GB 139.99
CORSAIR 750HX 144.99
asus dvd burner 19.99
windows 7 64 bit 99.99

I already have shin etsu X-23 and the 4 38mm clips for the megahalems.
I really wanna wait for the SB to be released and hope for a price drop but am rather impatient. Any idea how much would be saved by waiting? im looking at iether an asus led moniter or asus sound card with the left over $$$ and not sure which to choose for now. And finally, will i be able to facebook and game with this?(i play a lot of solitaire.)

You're planning to pay $299 for a i7-950 and you are hoping for a SB price drop? That doesn't make sense. An i7-2600k costs the same, even less at Micro Center.

No, X58/1366 is still a current platform. It is really unlikely for the motherboard prices to drop, and I read in another thread there may even be price increases.

Also please don't expect prices to immediately drop even if they drop. Retailers aren't dumb, supply and demand has to take effect. It's not, hey this stuff performs better so lets liquidate the other stuff.
