but then you need a new board, which is about $200 on newegg, and then some DDR3 ram if you dont have them already.
So its pretty much a new build you are starting.

Not exactly worth it for most people, including gamers.

Exactly.
the Core 2 Duo is doing fine as it is right now, so why upgrade?

I think most would wait until the cost goes down like what dual cores and DDR2 rams are now.
I would probably only pay $100 for a processor, $150 for a mobo, and proabably about $70 for ram at most.

I could see server and workstation-related tasks taking advantage of i7's performance though.
