Any price drops soon?

Greetings,
I was planning on buy an e6600 soon, any price drops soon? If so to what? Or should I just buy now? Also any recommendations for solid motherboards? I don't need too many gimicks, just reliable, good overclocking potential.

Thank you all soom uch

More about price drops soon
  1. dont know about price drops , but get E6750 , its faster and cheaper

    for motherboards , if u want SLI:

    ASUS P5N32-E SLI PLUS
    ASUS P5N32-E SLI

    Non SLI:

    ASUS P5K
    ASUS P5K-E
    GIGABYTE P35 DS3R
    ABIT IP35 PRO
  2. E6750 > E6600? Is there a reason that it is also cheaper? I believe you, but why?!?
  3. the E6600 is old stock, when retailers buy in they add a % and sell at that price until they buy new stock at a cheaper price... if a product stops selling / being sold to them by suppliers then quite often a retailer leaves the price high until they realise it's obsolete and then sell it off dirt cheap just to get rid of it - it would appear that the E6600 is in that middle ground where it's not obsolete yet but they bought in at a high price and are leaving the sale price high
  4. So any idea when the e6600 is going to drop below 150? Sounds like it should be soon? Also the e6750 is <200 right now. Should I just buy that? Or anything else new around that price coming out in the forseable future? i.e. october/november?
  5. The e6750 is faster, cheaper, and runs cooler than an e6600. It should also overclock higher.
    For the mobo, if it were me I would choose Gigabyte. The one Maziar listed is good.
  6. If you willing to do a pretty easy OC, than try these two out and save the $ for a good GPU or upgrade to Penryn later when you want another boost in performance.

  7. the reason E6600 is more expensive than E6750 is because intel wants its costumers to buy 1333MHZ CPUs instead of 1066(with the expection of Q6600)
