Well I am waiting a few months until the new B4 Phenoms hit...I will be upgraing my rig then. I just bought the Antec 900 case for it, but I will most likely be getting the B4 and a DFI board or something...who knows, if I am not into the whole B4, I might just flow with a q6600...

well if the b4 actually proves to be better than the intels quads or atleast be on par then that will be cool, but if they fail again...the q6600 will be your best bet...or maybe even the q9450!

They should be much closer, if not on par.

I was thinking the same...If B4 isn't a major upgrade, than to **** with it...I will go with the q6600 and call it a day. It might even be cheaper in a few months, who knows...

You cant return them if they're out of the box....I never touched it. I bought it on Monday night, then heard about all the bugs because I was out of the hardware loop for about 6 months. I decided to screw the new build for now and I will create my new rig when the B4's come out...So I returned it yesterday and got all me money back!!! heh
