    No it's not, that's the retailer cost per 1,000.

    It won't. Even if it did, as a result of Newegg's dynamic pricing, the surge of people buying it will put it above the $266 that it will never get to. :mamoru:

    It will not be $266 definitely, but is expected to fall around $275.

    Well, I got mine ordered, $12 seems like a small enough amount to not want to find out how well they will sell at $275.

    I pre-ordered mine somewhere else, guaranteed with the new G0 stepping.
    Price will be $275 to $300 though and shipping is anywhere between july 23 to mid August, or worst september. :o

    the one in newegg and most retailers is hit or miss, B3 or G0 stepping.

    At the moment, I'm not all that concerned with G0. I have no intentions of OCing, and the power savings isn't that much...If when I go to order my new chip, the G0 is available and priced the same, I'll pick one up.

    dont :ugh: me. I would be running a PC and linux right now if it wern't that my fucking M-Audio FW 410 requires win or osx and M-Audio refuses to support linux.

    Give me a high-quality working linux driver and I'll stick PC. Otherwise, I'm running to the dark side.

    Is this the lowest it will go? And how does this Core 2 Duo work? I am upgrading my motherboard ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16813157107 ) and prossesor because mine is getting really slow. (currently amd xp2000 1.6ghz). Do you guys think it will be worth it? Will I really notice the difference of upgrading to this 2.4ghz compared to my current 1.6 AMD? I don't play much games, mostly watch HD movies and when I play stuff higher then 720p it struggles. :o Also, for half the price, why wouldn't I get something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116048 (3.4ghz with hyper threading for half the price)?

    Sorry for the questions, I haven't looking into compuer hardware in a good 6 years. :rofl:

    Also dumb question, if I get a new mobo/chip, do I need to reformat windows XP?

    I have sensitive ears and I haven't found a "mainstream" sound card that doesn't sound like shit. I use it to power my Yamaha HS50M studio monitors and KRKRockit10 subwoofer.

    Sounds infinitely better than the ricer sound-blaster/logitech combo people sackride.
