It is a nice cpu, can't go wrong and like the amd cpu's you no need to upgrade for a while. Hell the 3 year old i7 920 is still by no means at all out dated by gaming standards, for a real money saver, you can pick up that cheap.
these prices are going to get even lower, the 8150's sold out on newegg in a jiffy.
but i have to wait anyway to get the 8150. ive other things to buy and yada yada
not to mention working out of town... kinda kills the dick on this for
