    Interesting news, and it looks to be true:

    Here is the FRYS link

    knowing us, it's probably just a screwup on our website. I'll ask the components department today if we have it brick 'n mortar yet.

      The link doesn't work anymore. Drats. Seems like $205 was a great price too. :(

          ??? I though you could find i7's for $229.00. Doesn't seem that great a deal.

            Usually the i7-920 model runs about $280, and it is about to be discontinued most reports say.
            This is a new mainstream socket, and needs a motherboard with the p55 chipset, while the i7 uses the x58 chipset.

              Well I'm glad I didn't wait any longer for the i7.

                Not sure what you mean.
                I actually didn't mean the i7 is being discontinued, just the cheapest 920 model. The i7 is going to be around for a long while, and if you are hoping to go with one of the new 6 core or late next year 8 core cpu's, that is going to be the only way to go. You also can't get triple channel ram with the i5, just the i7.

                  Are they keeping the 950? Any word of it coming down in price any?

                    The 950 is staying and I don't believe the price sheets had a price drop listed any time soon.

                          I believe so, if you go one there website it doesnt show up. But If you add a product to your cart then select a store to pick up, then look for the 920 it shows up then for $199.99

                            first "full" review of the i5 750 against the i7 920

                            http://en.expreview.com/2009/08/19/t...re-i5-750.html

                            its on ok review but I think its enough to peak some interest
