Sounds good... Thanks everyone.. I'm gonna go order now...

You really shouldn't care if you get a G0 or B3 Q6600, if I got a low VID B3, I'd be a lot more happier with that then if I got a High VID G0..

But the B3 chances are really low to get, most of them have been unloaded on somebody

You could talk to Inferno and he'll check the batch numbers for you and they are G0. I believe he sells them for 175

Just out of curiousity....... Why do you not want the dual with 45nm?.........
Not sure why you'd swicth with the q6600 being 65nm.

Isn't that a backward upgrade?
