the conroe model in that price range would be the e6400.

it has a similar clock frequency, so their pretty even their. and since the conroes architechture is so much superior, i would say itd be a good idea to wait for the conroe e6400

Grab the conroe. I'm a huge AMD guys, but Intel has really out done themselves this time.

The Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 will cost about $244. Runs at 2.13Ghz, 1033 FSB, 2MB L2 Cache and runs on Socket T (LGA775).

Conroe.

ownage - it's actually a 266FSB which is then quad-pumped ;)
Yeah, well no one wants to keep saying, "2.4Ghz, Quad-pumped 266 FSB, etc, etc." Takes too much time. That's why you just say, 1066 FSB.
