Wish I had the cash to chunk down, but I still think I would rather build my own.

Yeah it looks OK, even if a little pricey, but it bugs me that they don't tell you which motherboard it is. All it says is that it's x58 (duh, the only chipset that supports i7).

If you look at the pics, its an ASUS board. They also show a **** XION 800W PSU and it only has the stock HSF on there. For the price yer payin there, I certainly wouldnt feel good about the PSU and I would hope that they would atleast throw a nice HSF on there because if yer gonna spend that cash, you should atleast try and OC it a little. Sure you can replase the HSF, but if they are going to build my CPU, id rather not have to take it all apart. Wire management looked shotty too.

It's possibly ASUS P6T Deluxe

Funny, official release isn't until Monday, correct?

Anybody spot any Shanghai's for sale on Newegg yet? They were supposedly released already.

I think you will Shanghai single units later, maybe late this month, in retailers. Most are being used by vendors like Dell, HP, Sun, etc. to make servers. I looked at different retailers and did not see Shanghai for sale, but that is normal, as OEMs will be first in line.

Look again, around the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 24) and see if there are any Shanghai CPUs available at retail sites.

Did they take it down? I can't seem to find it.

Newegg puts up ridiculous prices so you don't buy the products before they're out. Once the i7 comes out next week, the price will drop by at least half (most likely more).
