You're going over to the wrong side man, Intel is the dark side.

Just like the QX6850 vs the Q6600....

....the age old argument of buying an Extreme flagship CPU vs waiting for the mainstream reasonable cpus to come out. That's why I was saying, you're better off with a Q6600...and you can just upgrade to a Q9550 or something when it comes out....and save 800 dollars til then

yes it will be for sale soon...within the next 2 months. It will be dirt cheap and the fastest dual core 939 cpu you can get your hands on right now...considering they dont make them anymore. I will let you know.

also...i love the fact that i got sigged...haha....

ok...well i guess i will see what happens. This build is happening by the end of this month so if i feel like i really need this CPU then i will get it, if not then i will just go with a q6600 and upgrade later.
