Just as a note, the only q6600's that microcenter had (at least the location by me) were b3 revisions. I think these sales are to get rid of all of those older stepping chips that they cant move. Still not a bad price if you dont plan on going super overclocked.

Fry's is probably a mixed bag of B3 and G0 revisions.

The MSRP is supposed to drop to 209 on this thing pretty soon anyway (heard it through the grapevine). It should be cheaper everywhere pretty soon

then theres no reason for going to the 45nm processors anymore...unless you shell out a lot of money for the higher multied ones.

There never was The 45nm chips are a way for intel to make more profit per chip (lower production costs due to more chips per wafer) and they also use the high FSB as a selling point to the less educated masses. I still plan on sticking to my q6600 until nehalem comes around.
