U can get it for around 260-270...you just gotta look around.
And if im not mistaken....the GO stepping is the better one which can oc more and be more stable...right.

Once it gets lower i might get that or the newer processors.
Too many choices!!!

Depends on if AMD has good intro prices... and then you need to wait for motherboards to show up and get settled in.

Overclocking cores separately, would be interesting. But what purpose would it serve? Maybe the temperatures won't be as high. And where'd you hear of this?
