Just wondering when the so called July price drops will take affect? I have 2 gig left on my hard drive and needing to do something soon. Was going to order a Q6600, but I never did see the promised price drop. I understand retailers need to deplete their supplies, just thought that would have happened by now.
I was planning on building a new computer (computer is over six years old) and am pretty much a penny pincher. I was under the impression the Q6600 was going to sell for around $200 in July, I guess I was wrong.
The Q6600 will never be $200 it will be replaced long before it gets to that point, If you wait a month or two it should however get to the $270-$280 range. $300 is a great price for a quad core CPU, especially when you consider that the Q6600 is just 2 E6600's put together, your getting a second CPU for an extra $70. If your on a tight budget go for a E4400 and overclock, you could get that little $120 CPU over 3ghz which is great bang for the buck.
