Default Core I7

Alright, they're just about to be released in November and as always won't be cheap. Do you guys think I should sell my current stuff for I7 while its still worth a pretty penny? OR should I stick with this for now and sell it later...

I'm leaning towards selling it later, no game I have will come close to maxing out the Q6600 stock let alone OC'd and I can still work my way up in the C2Q series. My next upgrade I think is going to be a FullATX Case, Water Cooling, new PSU and another 4870.

How much do you guys think the value of C2Q series is going to go down with the I7 release?

-Desktop- Dual Monitor, Q8200 2.34Ghz, 8GB, 1TB, XFX 6850, 7 Ultimate
-ASUS UL50- SU7300, 4GB, 500GB, G210M, 7 Home Premium 64, XP Pro
-HP NC6400- Core Duo 1.86Ghz, 2.5GB, 64GB SSD, x1300, XP Pro

There will still be many people still stuck with LGA 775 (Nehalem is a new socket), the price of the motherboard will likely drop, but not so much the price of CPUs.
AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 4.0GHz + TU120E lapped - MSI 770-CD45 AM3 - 2x2GB OCZ DDR3 1333MHz - Sapphire HD 4870 - Samsung Spinpoint 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - Tagan TG600-BZ Piperock - (Currently open test bed) - Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.

I have been an Intel fan my whole life, even though my computer currently has an old AMD Athlon 3000+, I will be waiting for the AM3 socket CPU's by AMD.
