    My opinion is that it's rather silly to decide what you're getting in a few months. Prices will be different by then, new hardware will be out. Look at your options by the time you're ready to buy.

    Can't look at the page either, needs a login and I'm not registering.

    Sure it's fairly new, and in 3 months it's the previous generation. If not there will be at least 10 alternatives to pick from. In this industry the lifetime of a product is relatively low.

    I'd wait till a few months.. I did and my build set-up a few months ago and it's changed so much, and my budget too..

    If your gonna build very soon its another story. :)

    Yea im sure I will change but how can intel release so many chipsets! Grr its so annoying. I would love to go with AMD if they release some good cpu's soon cause thats why I dont like Intel they have too many chipsets. Are the Phenom X3's supost to be any good? How much will they be?
