    OMG i'm so going to try and get one... Cannot wait till lynnfield comes out. It has timed perfectly for when I've finished saving so hoping to get a brand new rig.

    Just hope they're not all gone by the time i'm back from school.

    Cheap as chips! Is there a similar deal on the Core i5 CPUs?

    Quite. Good price on the mobo, but how much will the CPU be?

    Re: News - MSI to offer a 55% launch-day discount on P55 motherboards

    I was thinking of getting one of the Asus P7 Evo boards since i was put off by MSI's stupidly high retail prices however i'm definitely considering getting either the GD65 or GD80 now ... or maybe their mATX board if information on it is released before the release date.

    Shame there is no DDR2 support, that is putting me off upgrading as I'd need to get new everything and don't want to waste 6-8gb of RAM I have

    Re: News - MSI to offer a 55% launch-day discount on P55 motherboards

    This is a bargain, heres hoping other vendors will follow suit. I may actually buy one at this price and just get the CPU later on as well as some RAM, wouldnt be a bad investment would it ? The only problem is do you be greedy and get the higher end board or do you go for maximum savings and go for the high end board, descisions...
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    I will be keeping an eye out, ahahaha

    Anyone know the model numbers of the equivalent Asus boards? I've always been an Asus guy so Im wondering how these compare. Saying that tho, these MSI seem pretty feature packed.

    Yup - it's a great offer from MSI but it's a shame Intel (and all the associated distributors and retailers) won't have anything to match it for the CPUs themselves. On that note has anyone been tracking DDR3 prices? I've noticed DDR2 has been going up the past few weeks.

    Yeah, right, keep telling yourself that: you know damn well what'll happen. You'll get the new board, and to start with you'll think "I'll be good. I'll wait for the other bits". Then, after... oooh, 2 - 3 hours? Something like that? You'll be bored and think "well, maybe I'll just get some RAM". Then the next day "And maybe a CPU". "And a case". "And a couple of 290GTXs". "And some red neon string and uvs and fuzzy dice and a 5.25 bay fan controlller and a fata1ity gaming mouse and a rumble chair and a 32 inch display".

    ...

    That's what happens to me, anyway.

    What's up with these prices? 63 is not 45% of 169.
