lol I remember everyone donating and me snagging the E6600 @ $369 and Rgone getting the E6700 @ $569 or something outrageous like that...now Quads are $279, but more importantly, the sub-$100 E2xxx stuff clocks like crazy...

I'll tell you, I recently dropped four bills on an E8400 and GB GA-X38-DS4 and I can't believe the difference between my previous rig consisting of an E6600 and INF 975X/G.

I had been madly in love with the latter two, but when I compare prices between what I paid for the former, versus what I paid for the latter, I get sick to my stomach.

Yep some good stuff lately, prices are rediculous. I can't believe my $200 P35/E2160 combo beats the everliving snot out of my $700 NF4/Opty 170 combo...

yea....DFI and high end Asus boards are way over priced...but yet people keep buying them and think they really got something special....

and when we keep up with them or kick there little arses with our budget Gigabyte and Biostar boards they whine like little girls who got kicked in the school yard...

I refuse to spend over 100.00 for a motherboard when everyone I have costed less and ran just as fast if not better....what a bunch of crap...lol
