I have decided I'm not getting conroe quite yet, if ever. Intel has some revisions of conroe planned before the end of 2006, like 45nm die, more cache, etc, and since the whole reason I would be upgrading is for UT2007, and that has been pushed back to "the first half of 2007", I see no point in wasting money on a conroe right now when all my games run super fast already.

That is kind of cool, but prices still suck

Fry's has the E6400, which is what I am thinking now for $267. Why pay $299 from Newegg PLUS shipping? They need to get their prices down even more on these things. I guess they have made big strides though considering they started the E6300 yesterday at $389

I'm guessing that $267 E6400 is an OEM that doesn't include the heatsink or 3 year warranty. I bet Newegg's shipping is also cheaper than Fry's.

1. It is box retail.
2. If they had a cheaper OEM I would get it. I am sure as heII not running it on a stock HSF any ways.
3. It is FREE shipping

I called Frys electronics in Tempe, AZ yesterday to see if they had it physically in stock. They did not, and inline with their customer service reputation they were clueless as to when they will get it in.

That is a good price on outpost though.
