btw, the 45nm Intel Quads (9000 series) aren't compatible with the nVidia 650i/680i chipsets
Yep. That's what kept me from just buying a Q9400 and popping it into my eVGA 680i. It would have been a great upgrade and would have cost me about $200 less than upgrading the full platform to AM3. However, due to compatibility issues, I couldn't do that.

My Fiance's Gigabyte P45 is capable of running Quads, but due to current pricing, it's really not worth it to buy the chips. I wish the prices would go down a little.
