i would wait until christmas rolls around, or when sales go on, to get it becuase i don't think such a new item will have a price drop already

Even though it seems like the 2 core is a better match for games, this will not be true.

The lower clock speed of the I7 won't really matter, since the archetecture is all new, and so, it'll probably perform better than the E series at lower clocks,

Plus, games will start to use quad cores, etc, and some already do. With a budget of 2k, your best off going for new parts that'll last a while.

EDIT:

Didn't see there was 6 pages worth of talk... Sorry
