I wouldn't be wanting more than 3dimms really.

The Gigabyte looks hella overdone, but pretty impressive, the colour scheme is a bit much, though.

I'm really looking forward to having the choice between NV and ATI, that alone is worth the upgrading to core i7.

I honestly can't see the benifites from upgrading if you already have a highly clocked Quad rig. So far all indications are pointing towards a slight performance increase in daily tasks and nothing in gaming so why the hype? are we all talking about e penis rep or a simple need to speed insane amounts of cash for the sake of upgrading?

I don't think its gonna cost me that much extra, especially after I sell my stuff. Like I said.... I like to have the choice of Sli or XFire.

Yea I agree its a very strong selling point for sure but they will need to release a CPU at the $200 price range that will take on a Q6600 at 3.4GHz and crush it for it to be cost effective and I don't see that happening any time soon. For me it would almost be a downgrade!

Yeah, I'm gonna wait a couple of months for prices to go down. I see no reason to upgrade at the moment, everything I play runs great. I will probably wait until early next year.

Most previews talk about 20% to 40% performance increase in applications other than gaming, how can that be called "slight performance increase". Actualy if true I would call it significant performance increase.

Just because you're not ready to upgrade there is no need to attack others who are, with dumb talk about e-penis.

I definitely need upgrade badly. Does it mean if I spend more money on latest hardware, it's all about e penis?

I'm sure most people have pretty valid reason for upgrading when they do (even if they have "Quad rig") and for many it might not mean "insane amounts of cash", like it does to you.

Others are not ready for upgrading, nothing wrong with that but there is no reason to attack people who are ready to upgrade with dumb talk about e penis
