why u say that?
olmer#5
P55 mobo manufacturers would lower their prices temporarily at the official launch to promote new chipset (subsidised by Intel). Could be as low as£50 in fact - wait and see.

Micro-ATX with a good PWM, dual PCI-E 2.0 slots and 4 memory slots, pretty nice!

Building a PC is easy provided you choose the right parts, just let us know what you're looking for and we'll help you choose them.

"dual PCI-E 2.0 slots" operate at x8 when in dual-card mode, and CrossFire ONLY! :-(

The launch is on the 8th, isn't it? According to http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/473102/msi-to-knock-55-off-for-new-p55-boa/ anyway.

I hope so, I'm trying to stay awake until midnight, on the assumption the MSI boards will immediately go cheap then. Though I have not checked out the Gigabyte boards, I had a look at the MSI P55-GD80 preview on http://www.hardocp.com/article/2009/08/14/msi_p55gd80_motherboard_preview/ . Pretty nice, and it's blue.

Yeah they're PCI-E 2.0 though, so are equivolent to a 16x PCI-E 1.0 slot, more than enough for any of the current top end cards in a crossfire setup.

The OCUK team seem to think the MSI boards are unreliable for clocking. Question is whether it is better to take a flyer on a cheap one of them, or wait for some proper reviews and buy the best value board and chip.

hopefully some other motherboards will come down for the i5 core chip
markeh#18
so these sorta half price boards tomorrow are for the new i5 chips?
Minstadave#19
Yup if they're actually available.
markeh#20
so whats difference between i5 and i7, is it basically a celeron and athlon type deal?
