I think alot of people are wondering something similiar. I decided of the Asus P7P55D. I have been kind of partial to Asus for years and when I have had any problems, they have backed their 3 year warranty with no problems. After looking at all the different models of the P7P55D, I decided on the basic model, not the LE, Pro, Premium or Deluxe. I'm sure their might be users that might use some of the other features, but being realistic, I knew I probably wouldn't and that made the price of $149 at Newegg with some Corsair Memory on a combo deal that saved me $10 and free shipping easy for me to make. I bought my i7-860 at my local Micro Center for $229 plus tax and also bought a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ Universal CPU Cooler for $24.99 plus tax. I have read numerous reports that the stock HSF isn't very good expecially if you plan to overclock. I should have my motherboard, ram and cooler in the next few days and am looking forward to putting my new system together and installing Windows 7 RC and seeing how it runs after reading CPU Reviews the past few weeks.
