Not exactly breaking news, but I remember a few people planning builds using the 930. It might be worthwhile to wait until the 30th.

Lord knows I didn't need this either... now I'm looking to bank on the i7 price cuts since Sandy bridge doesn't seem all that revolutionary; both on the socket facet and CPU performance.

I wonder if the 930 will be seeing a similar price cut? That would be spectacular.

I think the plan is to phase out the 930, so probably not.

Intel isn't doing anyone any favors, sadly.

That sux.

If that new AMD chipset proves to be as badass as that link you posted the other day would suggest... I might jump to the AMD boat...

If you can wait until q3 2011, then I suggest you do (after much deliberation, I will as well).

Things look promising between Bulldozer and IvyBridge.

My Q6600 quad-core is running solid at 3gHz... I can wait another year to upgrade.

Yeah we're pretty much in the same boat.

I've been asking around @ Anandtech, NCIX and Rodney Reynolds and everyone agrees that the i7 is a superfluous upgrade for core2 quad with regards to gaming. Guess I'll shoot for a new graphics card and monitor in the meantime.

I've got the i7 920 and I still don't think i need to upgrade it anytime soon. My video card is just pretty terribad right now. So lookin' at upgrading that in the next couple weeks.

Wait until they launch the 6xxx series in November Borgoff. Prices will drop across the board.
