But now if I want to go Quad with i5, I have no real room to someday upgrade. I'm kinda stuck...

Edit:

And wow, $180 for a motherboard that only has 2 USB ports, and RAM placement that might interfere with large heatsinks?
I'm considering just going with a Quad Core now...
Are you're talking about the P8P67 PRO
