Release 1Ghz boards. Fancy one?

FINALLY got through. I am 131 in the 1Ghz queue, so there's not many positions left now.
I love the idea of upgrading my pandora, but to nearly double the price seems steep as a consumer/supporter. Would the upgrade really be worth the extra money? I've already been waiting about 3yrs for my console, how can I be sure that I'll get one within the next couple of months (as seems to be the estimate)?

Also; I've seen a few people discussing queue position, how would I get mine?
