Wow, now thats a deal. They are still 226 at newegg. I would imagine retailers will eventually need to clear the stock of these.

Holy jesus christ, that's cheaper than the AMD X2 5200+ I bought.
I feel regret now.

It is definitely a nice CPU. Paid about $250 [I think] for the CPU and a motherboard.
