Default Re: Intel X79 Chipset

I really like the look of the platform, however, something tells me we aren't going to see the successor to the original i7 920 on this platform. I'm thinking prices will start at $500 for the lowest end at best. Of course, it could be worse and this could be for EE only. Or maybe just a whole bunch of expensive 6 and 8 cores.
