I just checked my email this morning and to my surprise I found what seems to be a pretty frikin good deal. At Microcenter from 2/21/08 - 2/27/08 they will be selling the Intel Q6600 for only $199(in store only, website says $259 like always) this is limited to 1 per household. Lowest price I've seen personally anywhere so far was $238, althought I didn't spend too much time diggin around. Just a heads up for anyone interested or who might have been on the fence as to what processor to upgrade to. I'll probably be picking one up this afternoon, for my second PC, weeeee!

Edit: Just found a link to the ad: http://cps7.00b.net/498/content_load/585/02.21.finalview.html
2nd Edit: Fixed the bad link.

Well for anyone still interested, I just got another email this morning. The sale has been extended until March 2nd, although for the most part these should all be sold out by now, but persistence may pay off. Also, I have been told that they get shipments in on friday mornings fwiw. Linky: http://cps7.00b.net/498/content_load/588/02_28view_online2.html
