I can see anyone with a 1st generation i7 would be kind of disappointed with the Sandy Bridge CPUs, especially because you have to buy a new mobo for little perfomance benefits but for anyone like myself that was running an old Dual Core E8400 socket 775 system Sandy Bridge is unreal!! its kinda like winning the lottery, so much computing power available at a respectable price!
