Wait on the monitor and get a better motherboard and 4gb of RAM instead. Trust me.

true that. I made the mistake of of getting 2 GB of Ram at the start of this year, a few months went by and I already had the urge to upgrade to 4 which is pretty much the new standard. Definitely don't skimp on the motherboard either because it'll be a pain in the butt to swap out down the road when you find it doesn't do something you want it to.

I just picked up an E7200 for $80 from fry's. Considering its half the price of the E8200, it was a pretty easy pick for me.

Hmm... I don't remember hearing anything like that. Would be nice though.

We also learned that the highly anticipated Core i7 comes in the first two weeks of November. The higher clocked one works at 3.2GHz and will cost $999.

Intel doesn’t even hide this information much, but we know that it also doesn’t like when someone’s points it out.

The nastiest of all will be the 2.66GHz part that will sell for around $300 and so far Intel is the only one to a have a chipset for its own product. Nehalem looks like it's in great shape, it will overclock well, at least the high-end part. It works much better clock to clock compared to Yorkfield and its eight treads can really make a difference.

It's out in early November, we still don’t have an exact date, but we will try to get it.
