If XFR lives up to its hype the 1700 and 1600 are going to be killer good deals. Just wish they made a '1900' 10/20 beast as I am itching to replace my 6950X with an AMD.
There's some leaked ASUS motherboard pricing out in the wild as well.
IMO motherboard/chipset pricing has always been where AMD shines. It's been forever since we had a real new chipset release from them so many folks have probably forgotten about the traditional full featured yet affordable platform AMD has often brought to the table.
