if you are ordering from canada, check out ncix.com they are also able to price match from newegg.ca, just call them, and shipping could be easier from ncix...but yea, tigerdirect and ncix are the biggest canadian stores...

"A month or so" is optimistic for Sandy Bridge. Intel is supposed to begin shipping the corrected chipsets at the end of February, but "full volume recovery" may not be until April:

I assume there will be some additional lag getting the complete motherboards out through the retail channels.

That said, I think that the I5-2500k and I7-2600k offer good performance at better prices than the first generation I5/I7 chips. Both are quad cores; the I7 supports hyperthreading (8 virtual cores), while the I5 does not. The k suffix indicates an unlocked CPU multiplier. They easily overclock to 4.5GHz or more.

I hope that AMD is positioned to take advantage of the opportunity, though.
