I am looking into building a computer and I currently have the i5 760 in my shopping cart. I was considering i7 but it is out of my price range. Will the price of the i7 drop after Sandy Bridge? And how much will it drop?
mobo's don't usually drop as fast as processors when they develop a new socket/chip, as the lower prices move the now replaced cpu's and peopel need a place to put em, but as i said you are lookign at a mid grade build so i'd say the i5 should drop a good bit, maybe a small drop in mobo price, but not much of one. I'd suggest waiting till you see how sandy bridge -NB preforms and pricing of mobo's before buyign anything.. its only a little over a week away and 32nm quad cores... yes please
