Wow that looks pretty sweet.

The lowest I can find them is around $450 US here:

Pretty impressive stuff.

Still out of my price range, but its pretty awesome that you can get a quad core that overclocks really well for only $450.

It is getting closer for me to pull the triger,with it being just $450 and able to get around 3.4gigs.But what games are out now that take advantage of multipler cores besides just the 3DMark 06 benchmark,which is not a game.

There is no point in getting this now, when the q6600 is for 90 bucks more.
