The price cut on this chip has been known for ages but Scan seems to have it sooner than most and theyve taken a bit extra off on Today Only.

Ive linked to the Today Only page so add it from there and it will show up at the discounted price. For free postage Ill add a link below.

Note: Some people will prefer the new 45nm Quad cores but not all systems support those due to them using a faster FSB; 1333 v 1066.

These will drop even more as soon as AMD bring out there ]12 core processors later this year.

Think I will stick with my Dual Core for the moment.

Don’t expect to see those until next year and not at a price that is vaguely close to the Q6700. They will likely only be for servers and Intel’s 6 core CPU due this year is currently only for servers as well.

I do think you have a good price, my current set up was all bought from Scan 15 months ago.
Just updated the bios on my motherboard to take new Quad chips, but I still only want to pay around £130 for it, so back to the waiting game for me, lol.

Your right about the server thing, that is what I read as well, but hopefully this will start a price fall on all current chips even more.

Scan has the Q6600 retail version for £135.11 delivered on Today Only which I think is more of a bargain.

As you said, the q6600 is more of a bargain. They also have the E6850 for £126.

I currently have the Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 (Conroe 65nm) with 4GB Corsair XMS2Pro Ram PC6400 on a MSI P965-Platinum MB, so will wait for a real high powered chip to drop to a reasonable price.

I like the look of the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300, Yorkfield Core, S775, 2.5 GHz, 1333MHz, 6MB L2 Cache, Retail @ £176.24 (take another £40 off or so i think ;-))
