there is a sale at fry's right now for a e6600 and ecs mobo for $229.99+ tax

with the mobo supremacy for c2d undecided and intel about to release a 965 chip set killer in june, would it be stupid to just use the free ecs mobo for a few months while the top dog mobo is decided?

thanks

does it sound like a good plan though?

Or is there an undisputed king of the mobo hill I am unaware of?
