Core2 price drops in effect
#1
I just picked up an E6600 from newegg for $235, and they throw in some game free. That same CPU was something like $330 5 hours ago.

The other C2D CPU's are also cut.

Ya, I had heard that the price wars were going to start this month. AMD has already dropped their prices. I'm preparing for a double system upgrade soon, as my wife and I decided we'd upgrade our PC's to celebrate selling our house. It's impressive that we've kept these AMD Athlon 1.12 GHz systems for so long.

Yep. Well, got the high-end C2D (E6600) as I'm hoping it'll have the chops to do:
1) CCTV DVR for 8 cameras (low-cpu)
2) SageTV DVR for 1 HDTV, 2 SDTV tuners (low-cpu)
3) On-the-fly transcoding of OTA HD channels to my MediaMVP (very high cpu)
4) Database server (low/mid-cpu).

Based on when exactly the chip shows up (wed/thu), I *might* be able to get through #1 (CCTV) for the webinar. Heck, with luck, I could do #1 and #4. I'm hoping to do them all by next Monday-ish.

:-( Frys hasn't dropped their prices one penny and they say they don't know when they will.
