I'm in the market for a new processor and I have a Microcenter near me which has the cheapest price on the i7 930. When I called to verify whether it was in stock, I was told they will not be re-stocking once their inventory is depleted. Rep said the part was being discontinued by Intel. Wondering if anyone heard the same? If so, will the i7 950 be the likely successor?

Its probably just that they won't be stocking them since the 950 is only a few dollars more.

^+1... Also, the new X68 socket is being released in a few months, so those chips will replace the current X58 down the road.
