The conroes are out, you just have to be lucky to find out where, and have the money to pay the premium of getting one at the moment. I picked up a e6600 for $380 in Atlanta yesterday from a retailer that had only 5 left, so plenty of folks bought em, but officially they're suppose to be widely available TOMMOROW (Aug. 7th). Someone on another forum even mentioned that they heard that newegg is suppose to have them in 2 and a half hours at 3am. Also maybe part of the reason for the delay is because these chips are made in Malaysia?

in some cases, I would much rather have a 1000 dollar processer rathern then a 8000 dollar guitar,

of course I could always just pawn the guitar and use the money for other stuff...... o like computer parts
