So, I've been scouring newegg a lot lately.
I read a review for a new microATX X58 Mobo from MSI, the MSI X58M, on Anandtech a few days ago (link
This makes me consider getting an i7 within the next few months (gotta save the cash). I was considering a cheaper Core 2 Duo E8400 system but with this motherboard, I can build a decent Core i7 system for about a grand, which is where my budget's at.

What do you think? Btw, it's newegg.ca, Canadian currency. Antec P180 Mini mATX MSI X58M Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz G.Skill 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3-1333 XFX GeForce GTS 250 1GB Corsair 620W Modular PSU WD 640GB 7200rpm SATA
I'll throw in a SATA CD/DVD burner as well but I'm not picky.
EDIT: Seems the X58M is sold out at the moment. No biggy I guess, as far as I know its brand new so I don't doubt they'll be back in stock in the future. It retails for $170 American, so I think I remember it being around $190CAD.
