So the question is this, are you really willing to pay an extra 300-500 bucks just to go the i7 route?

Me personally i'm going to upgrade my current rig, and by the time the 6 core i7 chip is released i'll move over to the i7 platform.
I agree with your thinking here. That is why I'm sticking with my oc'ed Q9650, the gains from I7 do not justify the price at this point in time. I'll wait till the I5 and 32nm is here, I think that will be a much more efficient platform both price and performance wise.
