Intel cuts cpu prices 50%?
 
Is that server processors the cut the prices on or desktop or whatever?
thanks, I saw on Digg they (Intel) were cutting there prices and I just
can't stand it anymore, so what's the best bang/buck now? heh, I don't think
AMD can beat this price if it's desktop cpu's there talking about, thanks in
advance...Joe

A Digg.com search should find the artical if needed, Both cpu and mboard
combo info (Best Match) please and thanks again...

You might have to wait a while for them to clear 'old' stocks, it's now $266
from Intel.

These price drops are what I've been waiting for. Soon hopefully I'll be
able to replace my E4500 @ 3.2GHz (cores running at ambient + 2C while
idling, on air, Tt mini-Typh. Both cooler and CPU lapped) with a 45nm CPU.
I'm still unsure whether to get a 2 or a 4 core CPU, nothing I do currently
even remotely taxes my CPU. I just want to get a more powerful one while the
getting's good, to 'futureproof' my system as much as I can.

Cheers,

thanks, this price looks closer to my finances, I'm sure Phil will have
a good match board/cpu set by the time price cuts are seen anyway...Joe
