Default Intel Socket-775 platform, what to expect?

I'm sure you've noticed in the past year that Intel is working on something big, something that'll move them away from what they've always advocated as their driving force; the need to keep designing and manufacturing even faster processors. We’re about to see a fundamental shift in the way Intel approaches things and with that how the computer industry works, a change that will turn upside-down what has been the norm for twenty years. The emphasis will shift from speed and raw computing power to features, integration, and usability, or rather Intel will be looking at how to better integrate the computer into our daily lives.

Firstly, more speed is no longer required as it once was. Ten, or even five years ago, users were compelled to upgrade to the latest hardware in order to make the most of the newest game, office software, or latest version of Windows. Now, we essentially have users turning around and saying ‘No, what I have is fast enough.’ And they’re right. The hardware has become so powerful that users don’t absolutely need the latest and greatest, as they used to, when low-end, inexpensive, or dated components work just as well. It's pretty tough to sell faster parts to users who don't think they need them. The second, and perhaps more urgent reason for Intel to de-emphasize speed is illustrated somewhat alarmingly below.

The only point I like to make at this time with S775 is how reliable the socket/pin design will be. Time will tell. I'd insist board quality has been "down" in recent years. I hate the RMA process.

till now, the socket isn't reliable at all :grum: . The pins on the mobo tend to bend very fast, so. I hope Intel finds a better (stronger) way to produce their LGA sockets.
