What have you done or are planning to do with the 920?

my cousin gave me $300 so that helped out ,I went with the i7-3820 and a AsRock X-79 Extreme 4 since they overclock just as good every one can do 4.6 some people are even running it at 5.7g.I thought about waiting for the ivory-bridge but it did'nt look like muck of a upgrade ,It should overclock better ,and uses a little less power.After I did a clean install my i7-920 and gigabyte EX58-UD5 seem to be working just fine now.If I had new this I probbally would not have upgraded.But since my cousin was helping me out I thought I might not get another chance.My GTX 470's play all the games I have just fine and might as well get another year out of them.I have to make sure everthing is running OK and then I will probbally sell them I have the i7-920 and Gigabyte EX58-UD5 and 3 sticks of OCZ DDR3 1600mhz 7-7-7-21-1T at 1.6v

..

I'd sell all the stuff I don't need including the 470's and spend it on graphics right now.

Or maybe throw another 470 in there.

I have three GTX 470's ,was just running SLI because I really did'nt need three for the games I was playing ,but If I get a game and need to run TRI-SLI ,I am ready.I wonder what a i7-920 would bring since they don't make them no more .This chip is great for overclocking.I just hope the i7-3820 does just as good.
