More about e4300 price high
  1. Beginning of Q2> March month (The Spring Collection: By Intel)
    Intel and E-tailer's and Retailers will charge a premium onn this baby until the E6300-E6400 Stocks are sliced down.
  2. Cool thanks. Now all i have to do is decide on whether or not im gioing to wait until march to buy one of these.
  3. The Price is only going to drop down 30-50$ lower than what most Stores are selling them for currently. Well 50$ is a lot, considering the Chip is only worth under 200$. that's a good 20% I guess.
  4. right and i would basically only be waiting a month since Jan. is almost over

    I don't know when the price will come down... but I will only buy this processor for overclocking. From the anandtech.com article I saw this processor could keep in stride with the top of the line Core 2 Duo's (dual core) while on air cooling... not bad for a sub 200 dollar processor.
    I thought about buying one for myself as OEM then purchasing a new cooler.

    If I were going to purchase any other processor I would look at e6300 or e6400.

    This cpu teamed up with my abit board should prove to be a good OCing
    setup. I currently have ddr2 667 ram and the e4300 will put less stress on it and my FSB because it is running at FSB 800 mhz, unlike the e6300 that runs at the 1066 mhz. I to would like to buy the oem version because i already have a decent air cooler in the Zalman 9500
  7. Right now Fry's Electronics is selling the E4300 with a cheapo ECS mobo for $150! I'm ticked because I bought an OEM one from them last weekend for 170 (I'm not very interested in going back and trying to talk my way into 20 bucks and a crappy mobo, hehe). This price will probably be around for a while, because their ECS mobo combos are always on sale at around the same prices. If it is on sale at that price where you reside, you should go get it and sell the mobo for 20-30 on ebay. Less taxes, you could come up on a fantastic CPU for roughly $120! It's a fantastic CPU for my needs, and it is easy to squeeze extra juice out of (OC).

    All these new CPU's are expensive when first released.

    So are the 965 MB's. Look how much cheaper the 945's are.

    Have you thought of buying a new MB and installing the E6320 when it arrives in about a months time?
  9. unlucky for me i guess but i dont have a fry's were i live or i would definently do this and sell the MOBO

    if you look in my sig I have the abit aw9d - max. I hope i wouldnt have to buy a new mobo to suport that cpu you are talking about.
  10. You're good with that mobo and a 6320.
  11. yeah man i know i am thanks for the confirmation though. I would hate to think that a aboard that supports the quads couldnt cupport a revamped allendale
  12. yeah i like the asrock dual vista board. I used one o f htem in a build that i did for a buddy of mine. seemed to be a pretty stable board and alowed him to use an older gfx card.
