Default Conroe Prices?

I was away for a week and came back and noticed Conroe was being sold on newegg. Arent these prices like 100 bucks over what they were suppose to be? Like 6600 for $460 instead of like $330-$360?

"No one is asking you to stay so dont feel obligated."

If people would either just answer the question or not talk at all, this wouldnt happen. Its like if you have nothing nice to say, dont say it at all.

Newegg, for some odd reason, is jacking up Conroe prices to an extreme. You can get it for $340 at Buy.com
