    I wish I knew......the launch date has been delayed again!!!

    BTW (and "a little" :sarcastic: off topic), in a few minutes I'm going to go finish Deus Ex for the 4th or 5th time in two or three years. Deus Ex FTW mate! :bounce: [:wr2] :sol:

    Will someone please get us back on topic before I hijack this thread? :kaola: :ange:
  5. thats cool. now pple can go n get the q6600. it is very good offer.
  6. This is exactly what Intel did before. Hopefully its true.
  7. they'll keep chopping prices until they've completely destroyed AMD, then they're back up again. Get em while they're good, and make sure it'll last five or so years, cause you'll need that long to save up for the next cpu intel will sell you
  8. I bet Intel are "muhahahaha ering" a lot .. bet they have Friday 5 drinks!.. unlike where i work

    Unless they have been delayed again,expect to see them@the end of Q1 08,which would be the end of March.
