If anyone's interested, Dell has 50 identically configured 8400's for
$779. I'd guess a company ordered 50, then canceled:

While on the topic of new 8400's, I've been watching the site to see
when the 8400's would offer the 1066 FSB, which is not yet. How much of
a difference in performance will the 1066 FSB show in real life over the
800 FSB one? I'm thinking of 2 GB of the 533 RAM.

What CPU on these, Sparky? The RAM is impressive for that price. Are they
taking something back by charging shipping?

Funny that's not included with the system specs - they all say
"P4-3200". Here's one of the Service Tags: 0GYE9EHX

Standard shipping (3-5 days) is free. I thought it looked like a pretty
good value with the 160 GB SATA HDD & integrated NIC.

That's not bad for that CPU/RAM/HDD/DVDRW combo....
