I would love a mainstream shoot out that compares what people really buy in ways that people actual use them. But then people would call me crazy.
Your right the Intel EE sku (980X/990X etc.) are for the most part cost prohibitive... good mainstream performance and good overclockability is the sweet spot. Now if BD can just be competive with Intel's 2500K/2600K? I'm looking forward to more info being released in the days ahead!
