Just missed i7... regret??

1758 34
I built my Signature system just before i7 came out..

My question is.. was i wrong to not wait and go i7?
Should i sell up and go for it now?..
..or will it make little difference its not worth the price and hassle?

Also any recommendations on my system apreciated

Nah, i dont think that you will see much difference... core i7 is on average 300-400$ more than a c2q build, and for the most part, not much performance differences (unless you are rendering and encoding).

Honestly wait till westmere (probably similar performance to c2q tho because they will be mainly dual cores) or what I am doing, wait for Sandy Bridge (octo core with hyperthreading).
