yep ;-)

Good price to keep your S775 alive for a couple more years.

Would there me much of a performance increase for me?

should be almost idential, i've got the Q8200 and apart from the bus speed it is virtually the same

Price has gone up?

Yeah, I'm sure ebuyer monitor these forums and once there's interest they bump up the price a little, can't blame them for a little capitalism. Although you have to make a stand which is why I'm now looking elsewhere for the same CPU. Maybe it's churlish over £4, ah well good deal whilst it lasted

Looks like Aria are now a couple £ cheaper. in fact they have it for £106 on their super specials. Had no probs with them or ebuyer.

So Ebuyer if you did bump up the price because of this thread... think again because maybe some people will be shopping with your competitor as I've linked above

I don't think they did - I checked on Friday and it was at £110 then. (Was looking for a cheap 775 fo' mah Dad).

It available from RU Smart for £92.74 inc delivery...

(not sure about the company but a brief check doesn't throw up any nasty surprises)

I don't get how this was ever a deal. It's cheaper at Scan on their Today Only offer, it's regularly under the offer at prices around £100 (cheapest I've seen it is £95, currently £102). I guess if you don't get free delivery from scan it ain't a bad price, but free delivery is pretty easy to get.

From what I've seen, it would appear that Ebuyer change their prices dynamically and automatically based on demand, because their prices for any given product change so often. What I mean is, as soon as lots of people buy one product (e.g. when a product is posted here) the price automatically goes up. I've seen many cases where an Ebuyer deal has been posted here, then expired when the prices goes up, then unexpired because the price drops back down again (either because people stop buying it so the price goes back down, or because Ebuyer override the automatic system to get more sales)
