If only I had the money for that. Not a bad price. pick that up with the $200 dollar X58 mobo and 6GB of DDR3 and thats about $600. Less probably.

Man I wish I was rich.

Amazing deal. I paid 369.00 CDN plus tax in January...And for motherboard get the Asus p6t (or deluxe) very promising, i own one myself works flawlessly. Tom's hardware has an article comparing x58 mobo's and the best one is the p6t...

And then have fun OC'ing it. i run it at 3.3ghz no problem

I hear that most places were able to get it to 3.8GHz stable on air and on sock voltage. Thats a feat in of itself TBH since most other older chips (both AMD and Intel) could barely hit the 1GHz mark on stock voltage stable.

I wouldn't count on 3.8GHz on stock voltage. My 965 couldn't even manage that (though admittedly, my stock voltage was only about 1.08). I would say 3.8 is within reach in almost all cases though.

I'm curious why on earth did you go for ridiculously priced 965 over the 920 ?

I wouldn't count on 3.8 either @ stock voltages. I built eight of them and 3 had problems running long-term on 3.2. Blue screens, failed Prime95, etc. Sure, they booted fine and ran cool enough but running for days straight seemed to be a problem. I bet 3.8-4 is a safe bet for post and booting windows but I don't think you'd want to run them that way.

EDIT: Oh yea, great find btw! :)

I just grabbed one of these yesterday! Great bargain.

Starting to fall into the same price range as a "equal" PII system....

Man, I wish you were rich too, and would lend me some money :D 

Actually somebody posted a link in another thread about 6 gigs of DDR3 being under $100.

I would bet Microcenter is clearing out inventory for the D0 stepping. Anybody know how to tell the stepping if it's not printed on the label??

No one says that the phenom 2 is equal to the i7,it simply has a better price to performance ratio and costs less to build a system with it because it is backwards compatible and does not require new ram and mobo while still bringing in a solid performance.

Spath you are confusing the p2 with the C2D series... nobody has ever said the P2 is equal to the i7 as far as total power goes. if they did they fall under thundermans retard category.
