    I'm thinking about upgrading my main PC, and I have the opportunity to get a Core i7 Extreme 975 for $499 - brand new, retail box, etc. Motherboard, probably some ASUS... P6T Deluxe V2 for very cheap or free. I'd be upgrading from a Core2Extreme QX6800 2.93GHz on a D975XBX. Should I do it? :noes::noes::noes:

    i would probably get it if for no other reason than to sell it and make profit. Most everyone can get a i7 920 to the same level of performance as a 975 for a fraction of the cost.
