If you live near a www.microcenter.com you can pick up the i7 920 for $199. I've been told that the ASUS P6T Deluxe board is the one to shoot for. I'm torn between it, and the cheaper ASROck x58 Extreme.
Unfortunatly there are no microcenters near me, but no i will get my cpu from newegg. 50 bucks cheaper.
I just added up the prices, ill b paying pretty much the same amount total, but ill be getting all the parts i want. so its a win win
