    Right now, since its black friday, some store is selling i7 920 for 150. I want to get it, but i also want to see how Deneb performs and the AM3 Black edition 3.0 ghz and the Dragon platform and that stuff. So should i build now since the i7 is so cheap?

    I'd go for it. I doubt you'll be able to get a Phenom II for near that price very quickly.

    ok, I've looked everywhere, but didn't see it for anything even close to $150. is there a coupon you have to enter?
    and mey be abit off topic, but why do people call it black friday if its not 13th?

    OMG!! 150 get it. I wish i could get that now but too bad for me. 150 for a i7 is extremely worth it since u can get to 4.0 GHz on stock and probably 4.5 aftermarket and 5.0 GHz water quad.

    that sounds awesome but what about the heatsink,ram,mobo The savings would probably pay for half the board. Did Crucial come out with the tri channel ballistix tracer yet?
