    hmm, just curious, but why would anyone get a C2Q 9300 over a C2Q 9400, when they are the same price on the chart? same with the c2q 8400/8300?

    I hope they put down the prices for E5200 as well. When will this materialize (Newegg)?

    I find it interesting that the Core 2 Duo 8x00 series CPUs are NOT listed there.

    Though it looks like drops of $20 to $33 on their higher end chips in that chart. So those are half way decent discounts.

    Although I can't wait for i3 & i5 chips to get released, in hopes that this might also bring about price drops on the i7 line.
