sol.... dont feel down...

you have one piece of the i7 puzzle. thats more than 98% of TPUers man. you'll get the board and some ram. hell... the ram is cheap really. the gskills i have are $134 on newegg right now.

keep your chin up bud..... im looking forward to you getting yous going.

in all honesty... ask dark and kursah how hard i had to work to get all this stuff together by today. this has been a really stressful 2 weeks and it has all begun to pay off.

Hey Solaris, be happy you're not in Argentina like me where they don't even know what a quad-core processor is :wtf:

Just hang in there man. Things will work themselves out. And you better throw a few OC's in there for me :pimp:

Me too. Just think though, the longer you wait it out, the more options you'll have with motherboards, not to mention some cheaper DDR2 prices.

But then the fun goes away!!!

I bought my 790i ASUS the day it came out along with the 790FX board.


BOTH I LOVE, and still love to this day.......There is always something new around the corner like Skulltrail... I have said I wanted to wait, but why should I is the real question.

I understand. I like being a relative early adopter, but I also like to have a fair amount of choices too. That's why I give it about 3-6 months before I'll move to i7. I did take a step in that direction though. I bought a killer set of ddr3 that will hopefully transition well to i7.

Which is also a good view point.


Like me with the 790FX I had a jacked up Quad.....but I oced the hell out of it and had fun.

If I would of waited a few months then all that would of been fixed.:rolleyes:


The same with my 790i board. The dang os would get corrupted every week and force me to reinstall from the chipset tell my system to more or less kill itself:slap:. They did fix the problem months later, but by that point I was having a blast anyways.:)

I figured out how to OC AMD Quad core....It's harder, and most people still don't get it.

I got 2.980 on the 9500 LOL

Just on water!!!!! Along with 4 sticks of DDR2 at around 1200 at what 3-3-3-10 or something like that. Which was very low timings for the speed of the day........

Good times, Good times.

i was shootin for $50 shipped.

90 new according to a quick Google check....let me think....Like I said tho I don't have it right now.

I like to take my system to other places on air for the most....it's just easier.
