I am just waiting for the Venice Core 3500+ and the ASUS A8n-e Premium NForce 4!

I wonder how long of a wait I have????

Lol, venice is a fun city but can sometime stink! Watch out for St. Marks square, there are literally hundreds of thousands of pidgeons so getting hit with falling poo is a matter of when, not if.

As for the venice core, I plan to build a new system in December so I guess you could say I am waiting until they are out ;)

Why don't you guys just wait till 2007 when the triple cores will come out? Or what about 2008 when the quad cores come out...no just wait till 2020 when the ten core chips are out...

Something better is always around the corner...

Because Dual core will be here withon maybe 6 months.
2007 isn't for 21 months or so.
So yeah, they are comparable.....not.

likely 300-600 dollars on avg, and over 1k for the beefed up ones.

I'm waiting for the Toledo dual core cpu.

I've been seeing them at the supermarkets for years. I had no idea those scales needed such cpu power. Someone should beowulf all the food lions, piggly wigglys, etc. together and fight cancer.

sse3, and 90nanometer cores.
Forgive me for possibly asking a stupid question, but aren't Winchester cores 90 nanometer? Is the addition of SSE3 that big of a deal? Surely there's more to it than what you've listed here.

What's the advantage of waiting if someone is looking to buy now?
