I know, less than $200 price difference. For someone that will still be a bargain somewhere.

This just confirms my theory that waiting for the 970 (because of the 980X price) is/was a bad idea :p

Less than $200 wasn't worth the wait IMO.

i7 i5...etc. It's names like that that has me reluctant to upgrade. It's confusing.

Agreed. My i7 920 has been the best tech purchase in a long while. I should be able to keep this CPU for many years to come and never want for performance.

Only thing that would make me buy a new one would be crazy high default clocks which I don't see ever My i5 laptop is sweet as well..

although I don't see them much anymore, the i7-950 (I think that's the 3.06ghz one) is dropping to near the 930 price range. Now that part I would say is being competitive, although a little late.
