It's ineveitable, yet it's never for the things I want. It's not enough to wish for them to drop prices on their new line.....

Or some mobo vendors at least make budget boards.

Intel certainly had a reason to leave costs on the higher end before AMD rolled out their updated Phenom, but there is also the reason to clear stock so that the I7 will be the more likely choice for new builds.  However, as  I'm still running a socket 775, I look forward to some lower chip prices for a backup PC or two...

I just got a Q6600 at the end of November and NOW they are going to drop prices!? Figures, that happens everytime I upgrade!

lol the Q6600 isn't getting a price drop. It's getting discontinued.

 

might be a great time to consider Yorkfield though lol

There are rumors that a cut of 15-40% for quad-core CPUs and 13% for dual-core CPUs are in the mix. This would coincide with Intel rolling out a new 65W Core 2 Quad 8200S (priced at $245), 9400S ($320), and 9550S ($369) parts on the 18th, along with price cuts to the Core 2 Quad Q8200 and Duo E7400 priced at $183 and $113 respectively.

I'm hoping the dual cores get slashed as well. I'd love to get a cheap-er E8500
