the q6700 will be the same price as the q6600 is now.... but i say its pointless like the e6700, i say overclock a q6600 to a q6700 speed and u technically have a q6700

if you have a compusa store near you I would get that powersupply at CompUSA since its only $80.00 after $80 instant savings.

CompUSA.com: Antec TruePower Trio 650 Watt Internal Power Supply Unit - TP3-650 - Computer Upgrades Power Supplies

You can order it online too.

This is because, Intel's quad cores, are just two C2Ds, put together in one. It's not actually 4 separate cores. It's two dual cores. On the other hand, AMD's quads are true, I believe.

When the AMD quads come out, they will be more pricier than Intel's quads. But AMD claims a 40% increase in performance, compared to Intel's quads, the Kentsfields.

There is no such thing called a true quad core. A qaud core is a quad core. Period.

AMD claim in their website that 3600+ is faster than E6300 !!!

Overall Preformance

So, why should I trust AMD ?

Personally, I would stick with intel.

But if you know, the price of Q6600 will drop to $266 on July 22, so it is better to wait and get it on July 22 to save some $$$

I did not know that. I just went with, what I heard and read. But thanks for clearing it up.
