I'm gonna do my upgrade around mid may. Does anyone know when it's likely the new i7's will be out, I was really hoping to use one of them. :)

Maybe I don't need one, maybe I am becometh a power whore, maybe I can't afford one... but I want one damn it . ;)

Well, unless they all offer hyper threading for extremely cheap prices and unless you encode a lot or do something very cpu intensive then I might say it's not worth it. Unless you're meaning to the Dual cores Nehalems anyhow.

oh, they're arn't going to be any high end dual i7's, shame.
Hey do more cores speed up the ability to transfer files between hardrives and running virus scans etc on ridiculously large hardrives?

It helps a little but the hard drive will be the ultimate bottleneck. As it won't operate nicely if you're scanning , transfering and browsing around.
