Tags: CPUs Intel Windows Vista Product Last response: October 17, 2006 2:50 AM in CPUs Share protic October 17, 2006 2:41:38 AM intel's purchase program for retail outlets is coming. the deal is : This year's bundle will consist of the following: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor E6300 Intel® Desktop Board DG965WH Microsoft* Windows Vista* Ultimate All for the low, low price of $220! Seems like a good deal, but I haven't heard much about the 6300's performance for gaming purposes. Is there something else for $100-150 more that would significantly outperform this Chip/Board ? Also, anyone know what retail will be for Vista Ultimate?
