Wait the 40 days until the release and then make up your mind.
5GHz at under 1 volt is absolutely rediculous!
I sooo want to buy one of these babies the second they are out, well after TechPowerUP have given them the once over and 5GHz is real!
BUT as always with me i have to know i am spending my money in the best opposible way which means I have to wait to see how Bulldozer does as AMD are the kings of performance/value,
BUT by the time Bulldozer is out then Intel's high-end LGA-2011 will be just around the corner,
BUT just around the corner from that is 22nm Ivy Bridge!
Welcome to my world!!
