I'm going to buy a new system based on E8400. Recently I've red an article on THW called Intel Fine Tunes Processor Pricing, Increases Pressure On AMD saying that the E8500 price dropped by 31%! Now I can't see any price drops in the UK. How much does it usually take to effect (UK) market, I don't have any experience following these changes...

It will take a few days for it to take effect. That and if the demand gets too high then they will stay a bit higher until the places recieve new stock.

Be patient.
