    When moving from my Q9550 to my i7 I found that it was better for my wallet to wait and see what deals popped up rather than to actively look and buy i7 parts.

    I ended up getting my i7 860 as a combo deal with motherboard (@ less than the retail price of the CPU alone) and got a ridiculously nice deal on DDR3 RAM from Bogmali. I bought my P55 SLI @ retail price but got a nice MIR on it. After selling my 775 hardware and the bundled MB the total cost of the move was under $80 for me.

    The i7 has put it it's first 70 points since it returned to me :rockout:

    The other rigs you see returning result is a very kind member who is crunching a full day for me to celebrate my anniversary with TPU :toast: I only have two rigs crunching which are in my signature.

    Just noticed I have over 1000points today. Funny since I stopped (small break of sorts) at around 20:00GMT yesterday. Interesting to see how many points carry over from not being validated/scored on the same day.

    Ninja EDIT: @CP how do you bring up those stats?
