Talking Prices going down?

I've heard many rumors about Intel Processors and the NVidia GeForce 8600 Series going down if anyone has more info please reply.

If so I think I might have to wait a few months till I buy a new comp ; )

The 8600 isn't out yet and the Core 2 Duos are expected to have a price cut in April.

Yup, prices for hardware always go down. To bad they get replaced with better and more expensive stuff eh?

I'm looking forward to the price cut actually. I'll be building a computer near the end of April/beginning of May. . Excellent.
