Nah, no Yorkfield here. I've got a Q8200. I really don't care anymore the more I think about it. Like I said, at first I was oogling the newest thing, only to realize that the first few weeks/months of the i7 gen will probably suck and rape my wallet. I'll wait till next summer and see how they're doing and how prices are. If I could pick up a mobo/cpu/4gb RAM combo for 350-400 then, maybe I'd consider upgrading. But I just spent 340 on my mobo/cpu/4gb RAM combo, and that was at the limit for me with my current financial status.
