    after buying the i7 975 i understand that its a bad bargain. do u know y?
    because i bought it for $1200 (shipping cost to my country + tax) . i thought is 920 do can be overclocked @ 4 ghz then i can easily push it to 5 ghz. i pushed it to 5.2 ghz stable ( prime 95- 24 hours). but i faced some problem with shutting down the pc. so i get back to 32x 152= 4.86 ghz. but there are many people who did 4.5 ghz using 920 do. so next time ill not buy the top end cpu. i ll not suggest u to do that.

    In January or February 2007 I jump from a P4@3Ghz with an FX5600 128MB on a 15" CRT, to my lovely PS3 on a SAMSUNG 40" 1080P..
    Now THAT was a massive experience jump for me.. :p


    Dont worry, I never buy any High en cpus, especially from Intel..But if money wasnt an issue I would ofcourse..
    When the i7 975 came out, it was beaten by an i7 920@4GHz.. Lets do the math.
    Just estimating: i7 920= $284 + a $60-80 CPU Cooler(Noctua?) and we are around $350 and $700-800 cheaper and have the same or more performance..
    But when money isnt an issue the i7 965/975 is the way to go..

    I totally get you.. Its been almost about 8-10 months since my lovely 40" is broken by that GODDAMNED Wii!!! :biggun: and I'm currently saving for a 50-60" 1080P sceen and the best setup I can build around 3rd Q 2010..
    So I can say for sure that I will get my "massive high" experience jump not too long from now.. :D

    That's what you get for not listening to us and then there're the two 295's you've bought. 5970's Beat your card, whilst being cheaper and that margin will only increase when DX11 are released en mass.

    i spend 1200 for cpu another 650 for coollin ( phase shift cooling ) just to push the processor @ 5ghz. but now i have a 4.8 ghz processor what costs $1850 (cooler + processor). and my friend has a core i7 920 4.4 ghz setup costs $416 ( processor $266+ cooler $150). before core i7 there was a benefit of buying extreme series processor " the larger cash memory" so at the same speed it used to perform better then the normal edition ( core 2 extreme ). but now there is nothing like that. now the differences are QPI, clock speed and unlocked multiplier . qpi and clock speed can be changed by overclocking. u dont need unlocked multiplier if u have a good ram. so i made the bad choice..

    i bought it 7 months b4. 5870 was not in the market at that time. i ll buy a new one this summer ( June or July ) i hope that will be an i9 and a farmi.

    i'm happy with my 295 but not happy with the i7 975. because my expectation was higher from the 975.:puke2:
