Well I 'm still waiting for that 590 Intel board! And now these damn e6600 conroe's are sold out again. Just out of curiosity, I noticed that this "presler" CPU is 65nm as well as the conroe. I think if I remmember correctly this presler chip is a 3.4 and the conroe is rated at 2.4. Which is the better chip or rather the best bang for the buck. Conroe about $350. Presler about $230. Anyone?
