Because Intel is being such a bitch there is just one chipset supporting i7, its not clear whether nvidia will be allowed to make theirs for this Intel platform.

It could be “what the market will bare” coming into effect and AMD users demanding lower prices than intel users too. A corsair would be much better. That earthwatts won’t due.

It most likely won’t, except for that ASRock nForce 3 motherboard. X58 has everything one could need. Well, that’s just with the new Core i7.
