Exclamation Couple Hours Left... Intel Price Drop... JULY 22nd... Strategies/Advice!

So I was wondering... what happens if, on July 22 the price on the CPU's are higher than expected? Lets say the e6750 is selling for something like $204 and q6600 is selling for $300.

I know there were many posts about this, but is the price on the e6750 going to be $183 on Newegg? I think it'll be around $200... but even after about 2 weeks, do you guys think the price will lower or stay the same at the July 22 price.

I just don't want to be one of those fools that orders as soon as it is available on Newegg and buy it for $220, then a couple days or a week later it drops to like $190. That would suck.

Anyone have a strategy? Or are you going to buy July 22nd no matter what..?

Well the G0 stepping CPUs probably wont come in for a few weeks, until all the older CPUs have gone. So by this time the prices will have settled as well. So wait a few weeks.

OMG.... LOL. I was waiting for this day forever... and now to wait even longer...

Maximum I'll wait after July 22 is two weeks... after two weeks... I'll just order the e6750, if the price is reasonable.

Yeah it does suck a bit, but you have waited this long already.

Wait a minute, so the e6750 won't be $183, right? That is for bulk purchases from what I have heard... and it seems to make sense.

i think the e6750's are all G0...its just the Q6600's are still B3's

if you want a Quad. i'd wait about 2 more weeks to be 100% you get a G0

Yeh your right, i didnt think about that.

G0 stepping basically means a lower power consumsion, lower temps, and they will O'C farther.

So if you plan to get any of the xx50 chips you dont have to wait
