Back on topic, I am planning on building a new comptuer with the 790i board from Nvidia, but do you think that it would be smarter to wait for then new socket boards to come out and get a Nehalem?
Don't expect to get your grubby mitts on a nehalem rig until early 09 at best. They just wont be affordable at all until at least then. All of the first stuff will be server rigs anyway. Best bet is just to get a good penryn and ddr2 rig to hold you over.

Intel is certianly not into "eye candy". If they put a naked picture of Salma Hayek next to the skull and crossbones I'd buy and be so Randy!

Can u guys answer me something, I have been wondering why they do not put the South Bridge and the North Bridge in the same spot? Then you could put a huge heatsink that covers both of them up, lets say you put a tuniq on them, that would increase performance if I understand that correctly?

on topic, you do this to torment me right

this looks promising but by the time i get my current build and run it for it's life span (4-5 years) the next big thing after this will be out (or very close)

ha i've already jumped from a single to a quad core skipping dual core's

lol same... i basically went straight from a celeron to a q6600.... talk about progress.
