Depending on what you want to do with the PC, I would recommend to stay away from the X58 motherboards for the i7 Intel CPU's, although they are great they are way overpriced IMHO, averaging about 200 in the UK probably double if not triple the price in Australia, and of course the i7 CPU's are extortionate also.

they maybe over priced...but is their performance to be laughed at? i've had no problems with their performance...unless i'm missing something( u're the one who okayed a similar configuration about a year ago)?

Not to be laughed at, no...

But Sandy Bridge pretty much rubs the x58's face in the dirt, so.

idk about that. the specs i mentioned in my previous post...i'm having no problems with it infact i'm yet to run a game at max settings that actually utilizes even 50% of its capabilities. in any case every 3 months or so u'll always have a product rubbing some product's nose in the dirt.

Pretty much. Until Sandy Bridge came out, the 975EE was right next after the 980x. Now, the 2600K is right behind the 980x.

When Ivy Bridge arrives early next year, both 1366 and current 1155 procs will be left in the dust.

I didnt say they performed badly, I said they are pricey for what is available. They should have dropped in price by now but haven't.

...yea i know...they should have done so by now but partly to blame for the pricing is the different tax/levy regimes of various countries too. i would never or have never dis-regarded or made fun off ur observations/advise...u know that

That's sometimes the case, but if there's a high demand then they'll probably be taking advantage of it. Their aim usually is to create the greatest amount of profit.
