Even with the expensive mobo's:
E6600 = $350 (Street Price)
Mobo = $250
(Nice one any ways, there are some ~$150 options)
Total = $600
That set up will beat a:
FX-62 = $800
Mobo = $150
Total = $950
Now I know, in the lower end set ups the difference isn't as great, but point is, the Price/Performance of the chips, does counter the prices of the mobo's right now to a point. All that being said, I am disappointed at how expensive the nicer mobo's are right now.
