If you are looking out and plan an upgrade with Core i7 920 ... you might want to hurry up. It is now semi confirmed that Intel is going to axe the Core i7 920 and 940 quite soon.
Now the 940 will be replaced with the 950 and also a 975 will be launched next week to replace the 965(we'll review it). But IF the Core i7 920 is to go EOL .. there will be no 'affordable' 300 USD counterpart anymore to fill that gap UNTIL Core i5 is released late(r) this year.
So if you where in the market for a Core i7 920 .. now's a good time to pick one up. And hopefully we'll be proven wrong. I picked out dome good deals the 920. Here you go:
