Does anyone know where to get a i7-920 step d0 around $150.00 with the fan and heat sink, I heard later this year intel is going to upgrade their i7-920 line to be faster than the old ones running even at stock but I need a cpu now and will get one of the newer ones later.

The i7 930 just got released at the same price point as the older 920, is that what you are referring to?

That is a nearly $300 cpu no matter any way you cut it.

passmark scores on various cpu's. the closest cpu to your price target that might play ball is a AMD phenom II x4 965. Its usually around or lower then $150 or so if you can find a rebate deal. with a bit of overclocking you could get in the game. I see that intel cpu getting nearly $300 everywhere.
