Great price for the E8500.

Hot!!!!

Great price for this CPU. Hot if you're after this model, if not save £20 and get the e8400 - or save £50 and get the e7200

Nice Price :thumbsup:

good gaming cpu...

Intel have price cuts due in the next 2 to 3 weeks which will mean the E8500 will cost what the E8400 does now and they’re also introducing an E8600. Worth waiting if you’re not in a hurry.

jesus thats cheap !!
