so theres a new Intel Processor with a new socket, the LGA 1366 socket, its to good for FSB it now uses i think its called QP or Quck Path.
if you're planing on getting this be prepared to buy a new motherboard, specifically the X58 witch for the first time can do Crossfire AND SLI (but not 3 way SLI) it can only do up to quad sli (2 x 9800 GX2's) so basically you can have 2 nvidia cards or like 3 ati cards or some other variations of the board allow 4 way crossfire.
anyway heres me re information about the X58 Motherboard that supports thw LGA 1336 Proccessor:
Intel X58 Extreme DX58SO motherboard review
and the ASUS Model:
ASUS P6T DeLuxe review - X58 motherboard
and of course information about the new Core i7 quad cores:
Intel Core i7 920 and 965 review
these informative links are in the format of Reviews by the great guys at guru3d.
i myself wanted to get an Intel Core i7 965 so that it could last me a while.
and was planning to get the motherboard in the link above(ASUS one) or a Rampage II Extreme for the extra features.
since there's a new processor and a new socket/motherboard to match it i want to know what your thinking about it.
i think this is a new step forward fot the gamer/enthusiast market.
