Will the MSI X58 Platinum come with a Promise T3 RAID controller? I really want another desktop product that supports SAS drives for my next PC.

I forgot, The Intel DX58SO will be $269.99 and the Asus P6T will go for $319.99 USD. We have all 3 models of the Nehalem chips but I can't verify if the prices I know of on the 940, and 965 would be correct so that is why I'm leaving them off for now.

I have 8GB of DDR2 in my E6400 system. Hopefully Q9550 will come down to sub $200 by mid next year so I can keep my motherboard for 4 years. Jan 2007 to Jan 2011.

I've got my fingers crossed. I got my E6300 one month before that. It would be nice to get something like a Q9550 and extend the life of my RAM, board, and OS.

These should really be more marketed towards professionals, no gamer needs to switch sockets just yet. You can pay $500 and score 40+ FPS in almost all games on the market, on respectable settings. There's currently absolutely no need for Intel to bring out i7 at all, actually. The current intel CPUs are more than enough with room for improvement. Intel once again shows us that it's entirely unable to hold back a product release to milk money from *still functional* current product lines.
