Default Conroe, Merom coming Thursday

Conroe is a few days late, BUT Merom is a few weeks early. I think it makes up for it.

Prices will be higher due to price gouging. Expect the 6600 aroundd 350.

Thanks for the laughs mate

though I'm afraid for the first time in my life im gonna stick to AMD and go for an x4200 or 4600 instead of a conroe E6600... i've found myself a really neat mobo for rather cheap for AM2 and i'm happy with it, while the conroe mobos here costs a fortune... I Just don't have money for all that stuff.. perhaps in a couple of months if I heal up and get a decent job i'll sell the rig i'm gonna buy and buy a better one . for now, i'm gonna wait a couple of days and see what happens, but im leaning towards the AMD price drops rather than the Intel Conroe release..

-Jo.

Yoad - they cost a fortune here too.. Lol this upgrade is costing way more than planned...

wtk pro - price gouging is illegal, and most reputible vendors know that thier buyers read up on prices. They wont want to lose any footing with a mass amount of customers.

So Conroe is somging out on the 27th.. any idea what time? ( preferably in EST)

ahh.. its too bad for intel though.. i was gonna buy a conroe when it was SUPPOSED to be released.. but they made me angry.. so i'm saving my pennies, and getting a 3800+..... and knowing me (the average consumer) many others might do the same with those price drops
