I thought the QX6700 was gonna be be $999 like all other EEs from intel.... is this just a temporary thing? I was planning on getting kentsfield in january for my 8800GTX rig, but i cant afford $1500....

I think alot of people are happy with their core 2's i see such awesome clocks and performance. Kent looks sweet but i think alot of people will pass on it least till the price comes down a bit.
thanks for the heads up

I think a Dual Core + 8800GTX SLI will be money better spend than 1 1500CPU -.-

I spent 319usd on this chip and don't regret it one bit. I can't see spending that sort of cash on quad core. All it would do for me would be inflate my 3dmark06 score and that's not worth 1.4k to me at this time.

Yea, Kentsfield is totally useless right now for gaming... until Crysis and Alan Wake that is... :D

Perhaps by that point there will be even better Quad Cores with higher clocks as well.:D

Yup ;) Maybe even 1333MHz FSB CPU's.

Yup ;) Maybe even 1333MHz FSB CPU's.

Since all of these 680i boards are compatible with 1333MHz FSB that will rock.

Heh, there's no way in hell a CPU is worth $1500. There are so many more useful things to be bought with that kind of money. I think I'll live with my lousy dual core Pentium D! :D

You would be a moron for buying a kentsfield unless you were a 3dmark (which should really be named system mark), encoding, compressing, or rendering addict.

Also I believe that even when Alan Wake hits the streets it will still be GPU LIMITED!!!

I wonder what kind of 3d mark score 4 of these would get when powered by 3 8800GTXs. :p
