Anyone here built a Core i7 system yet? If so, how does it compare to Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad?

I haven't built a new system in a while and have been considering building a new one using the Core i7 940.

My new system is going to be an i7 as well. So I would be interested in the news of this also.

I recommend everyone spec their machines around that :)

Any particular reason(s) for those choices? I'm partial to Intel motherboards and was planning on using a DX58SO or if it's out when I build a DX58SO2. I've had very good luck with G.Skill RAM too...

Mine is going to be the intel x58 board with corsair dominator ddr3 triple channel and 2.93 processor :p

I am thinking about getting a sapphire 4870 1 gig video card as well. But haven't decided.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
