Newegg is started to become one of those ridiculous e-retailers. Newegg, you can kiss my A*S*S.
August 7, 2006 6:09:33 PM

What the fuck are you talking about? They're the best computer hardware online retailer there is.

I bet you that's a typo on the e6300 price.

Agreed. Built my alst PC off Newegg but their prices are not close to competitive anymore... And this Core 2 Duo pricing is way high... I'll wait for someone else to get a retail box at a resonable markup.
August 7, 2006 6:13:49 PM

Did you see their prices lately? it's not only the Conroe's that you can find it cheaper at other websites when you google their hot products. What good is it for me when they have a jacked up prices even they have the fastest shipping? I want to save money period.
August 7, 2006 6:15:10 PM

They've obviously screwed up the prices. I don't think that was intentional. Why would they price two processors $10 apart?

Something is up... perhaps they are in somewhat of a hurry? :lol: 
August 7, 2006 6:17:12 PM

I thought newegg was better than this... :oops: 
August 7, 2006 6:19:09 PM

I pray this is wrong, however I agree. Thier prices are nothing like they used to be. I have priced out my entire system on zipzoomfly.com and its very close to newegg, and zipzoomfly has no shipping charge on anything.
August 7, 2006 6:22:42 PM

I think this situation happens to everyone and/or everything we come across. When you give too much credit or respect to something or someone, they loose their sight of decency.

unfortunetly, you may be right
August 7, 2006 6:29:05 PM

thats is just plan highway robbery. i was planning on ordering a e6300 from newegg but zipzoomfly is shoulding very tempting right now

yes, i might go zipzoomfly for e6400 also

Obviously thats not going to be the final price. I mean they dont even have the cache right. It says the E6300 is 4m shared cache.

I bought my Sempron64 from Monarch cause it was $39 more at newegg. Then 2 days later they dropped it to the same price as Monarch.

One thing about newegg, there cpu prices are usually competative, but at first they always start high. Not sure why but you will see then drop in a couple days.
Zipzoom fly is usually a little cheaper on any cpu.


staring high doesn't mean about $170 higher than a competitior
August 7, 2006 6:33:39 PM

Lol..I just chatted with a rep. They are aware of the problem and working on it...

He says he couldn't give me correct pricing as he only saw the same stuff on the web as we do.

Nice one New Egg, nice one.

I said "nice launch" and he typed back a smiley face.

Geezall..
August 7, 2006 6:33:45 PM

I see your point but still $120 (compared e6400 on zipzoomfly), man that's wrong

Maybe everyone should let them know their prices and description are out of whack:

http://www.newegg.com/CustomerService/ContactUs.asp?act...


Sent them an email, quoting prices from ZipZoomFly as well as the L2 cache on E6300.

ZipZoomFly has:

E6300 - 219
E6400 - 279

For anyones Info.
August 7, 2006 6:39:28 PM

but don't forget you get free shipping from newegg two that about a $150 value so it about even :roll:
August 7, 2006 6:41:29 PM

NewEgg is definitely charging a premium. They tend to do that when they get something new & shiney in. Earlier this morning they didn't have a single Conroe available.

I always keep a spreadsheet of my next PC build as I do research and I have a links for the same parts at NewEgg and ZipZoomFly. I've been watching the way NewEgg does pricing for over three years. On average ZipZoomFly is about $40 cheaper than NewEgg for a complete box build (including shipping) and they have 2 day shipping rather than NewEgg's 3 day shipping. My last build was with NewEgg, but my next will be with ZZF for sure.
What's interesting to note is that since about a year ago, NewEgg started becoming less competitive in pricing. Presumably since they have a huge customer base and people might pay the slight premium because of who they are. Granted they've got a nice website with good information. But what's to stop me from researching on NewEgg and buying from a competitor like ZZF? Nada. :D 
August 7, 2006 6:45:53 PM

yeah the only reason i am going with newegg(well i guess was before this) was because of customer support this will be my first build and if i had to return something i needed good support but my next build when i know what i'm doing is going to be fro mthe lowest place. which may be newegg may not?

Exactly.

I think newegg.com will bring down their prices in a few days. It doesn't help me though 'cause I'm looking to pick up the E6600. Newegg doesn't list it and ZipZoomFly is out of stock.
August 7, 2006 7:02:02 PM

Try to purchase your E6600 of buy.com

They have the best prices for the retail E6600 and the P5W DH Deluxe motherboard.

The mobo is sold out, and the E6600 is not expected by most e-tailers (including buy.com) until 8-16-06.

I saved lots of money and time going with buy.com, I just hope I get my cpu and motherboard in the actual 1-2 weeks which they quoted.
August 7, 2006 7:02:48 PM

:cry:  . o O (sigh.. ebay)

ZipZoomFly has my heart, that is if I was really going to start building a system... now.
August 7, 2006 7:08:44 PM

This sounds more like a practical joke.

They probably received too many emails asking about the C2D availability.
The "availiable for double price" sounds funny for me :o 
August 7, 2006 7:14:38 PM

Sadly this is nothing new with newegg lately. For example with the AMD cuts Tigerdirect has the 939 4600 X2 for 255 and Newegg had it around 350, I think they have come down to about 329, similar "deals" for the 4800+ and other models.
August 7, 2006 9:13:08 PM

Well it's not a mistake. They obviously have been listening to feedback and have changed the the 4mb cache on the e6300 down to 2mb. Looks like i'll finish building my rig at zzf.
August 7, 2006 9:16:09 PM

8O They did change it fix it back to 2mb

Heh, and I still haven't heard back with any email yet.

Guess they just wanna cash out while they can.
August 7, 2006 9:23:37 PM

Lol this has GOT to be a typo or they just don't want to sell any of them yet... I'm waiting for a E6600 anyways, and I'm going to wait for it to be priced around $340...
August 7, 2006 9:45:56 PM

I hope those prices are a mistake. as for ZZF, I called their service center twice today, and one answer I got was a shipment of 6600s will be in today, and the second time I called, they said they won't get any in for a couple weeks. Anyone else tried calling them today?
August 7, 2006 9:53:36 PM

its pure madness right now in all of these companies shipping departments! I dont think any of them know whats really coming to them anymore... thats why I went with Microcenter... they seemed to be on the ball somewhat! They recieved some X6800 here in michigan and sold them... then they got a new shipment at the warehouse and it looking like I was able to get one from them... At least thats what their department told me!

Newegg seems to be pulling me along but never giving me what I want which kinda has mad me upset... but i understand the situation and I still love newegg!

Just look at all the free advertisements/referrals they get on these forums. Whenever anyone asks for an opinion, 97% of the links provided are for Newegg. Good for Newegg, and reaffirms what they already know....They are the widely preferred on-line retailer, and if they want, they can/will abuse that also....for a while that is. :wink:

I love Newegg. Such great prices!
Pros: A great cpu and at such a low price! Way to go Newegg!...
Cons: Only 2mb cache.


what do you guys make of this review for the e6300 on newegg?? who in their right mind would say that? i feel like someone is planting patsy reviews... :evil: 
August 7, 2006 10:55:44 PM

Prices have come down for the e6300 - $359.00, e6400 still $399.00. I guess you have to wait a couple days for the prices at newegg to come back down to earth.
August 7, 2006 10:59:47 PM

I thought it was a bad joke, but now it looks for real.

Screwegg, no kidding. Supply and demand, I suppose, but the madness of crowds is more like it. I give up, if I get a rig built by September I'll be happy, but this zaniness is just not an environment I want to shop in...
August 7, 2006 11:12:31 PM

agreed, i'd rather see what the new nForc5 mobos are like anyway compared to the intel chipsets.

I just read those reviews and have to agree they are bull shit... $360?? when the same CPU is posted at $220 at ZZF??

I'm waiting for my E6600 to come to around $340 before I buy just because I don't want to reward these bastards for gouging, even if that means waiting months and months with my mobo/case/ram/vid card...
August 7, 2006 11:39:16 PM

Yea the prices are steep and I hope a typo. I purchaced my computer components through Mark one computers


I placed 2 seperate orders one for the tower and one for the rest of the components and had no problems. They are out of Elk Grove,Il on the north west border of chicago.
