Ok so it must be pretty sweet to see 8 cores listed in your tab..even though its really 4 hyperthreaded ones. Any one know just how much of a performance gain these are over my 3.2 Ghz Core 2 Duo?

The new platform is available with 8 pyshical cores but if all you do is play WoW, you're not going to get any performance change. You could go back to a Pentium 3 and still be fine. keke

As a note, right now there is only the X58 (awesome board but $$) and the G41 value line motherboard for the i7 processors. This fall, there will be the P55 motherboard which is your mainstream option but it may be using a completely different socket since it doesn't use ICH at all. So if you we're considering going to i7, unless you're going the extreme line with X58, then wait. I just bought the last extreme X48 board last summer and have been trying to justify an upgrade but I can't dozorz it.
