Ever since Intel debuted its high-end X58/Core i7 platform last November, there's been a virtual sea of users pressed against the candy shop windows. DDR3 prices have come down dramatically since Nehalem's launch, but with X58 motherboards still hovering around $175 and the Core i7 920 at $279, Intel's latest-and-greatest still commands a significant premium over the Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad families. Lynnfield (somewhat erroneously labeled as Core i5) and the accompanying P55 chipset (codenamed Ibex Peak) are meant to reduce the cost of building a Nehalem system, but trouble with Marvell's SATA...
