The new Intel chips will not be Extreme enthusiast editions, but rather general market processor solutions. Looking at Intel's current mainstream product lineup and pricing, it ranges from $200 - $400. This will be the expected price range for the new Ivy Bridge CPU's.

Really can't beat it for the money from what I can tell. Put in a GTX 570 card and sit back for a few years.
