    I love the price difference between i7 870 and i7 860. Its only 133 Mhz diff, yet almost $300 diff in price. I cant wait for Tom's to come out with OC guide for i7-860, that will be a real value.

    depends if you have your heart set on tripple channel. but if its the same price or cheaper than the 920, I think u'd be crazy not to go for the 860, hell, even the i5 is the same clock speed as the 920, and it turbos higher, you don't get hyperthreading, but especially for gaming, i'm not a big fan of hyperthreading anyway, don't think it makes much of a difference (i have a 920), will be interesting to see the 920 and the i5 compared in games.
