Exactly how I feel. And it has so many threads about the same exact thing.
http://www.techist.com/search.php?s=...der=descending
Here's 775 threads all relating to conroe. At least 100 of them directly relating to price.

So, my friend... we are all tired of useless posts.

My point exactly....

Edit- Will the Conroe prices on some sites go down to what they were suppose to be priced at?

Yep Conroe prices are getting jacked up. I configured a nice pc from ibuypower.com yesterday which came out to $1300. I did it again today and now it's $1400... it blows but blame supply/demand.

It's probably because yesterday there was a sale on one of the parts you had chosen.

If there were specials, they were on very low priced items like DVD drives. I didn't see any major parts like cpu or gpu that had special written next to them like other components did. I think they decided to bump up the prices on conroe systems overnight because of supply/demand.
