Hmm every new EE chip has been over a grand at its release. Getting a 4 core EE chip for the price of a dual core EE chip seems pretty fair to me. Its like buying 2 x6800's for half the price the only differance is the stock clock speed which doesnt realy matter as it will have unlocked multi's up and down. Unrealistic, I dont think so, out of 90% of the users budget yeah Id agree with that. The places that a chip like this will come in handy the best will be in rendering and crunching as it would be able to do 4 times the work and about 8 times faster then a CPU like yours.

I'm planning on getting one, heavily discounted though, otherwise I probably couldn't find the cash for it easily.

Though I agree, there is nothing wrong with those prices, especially at release. Thease are quad core, brand new CPUs. The pricing is actually right in line with what was expected, though some places were reporting un-realisticly low prices a few months ago. You can get a quad core 6700 for what you could buy 2 dual core 6700s for, seems about right......and you only need one motherboard to run the quad

Core 2 Duo prices will drop a bit I would suspect, but not much as these Quad's are not replacements for the Duos, they are high end new product lines. Targeted at the extreme user and business that deal with CAD and rendering.

I plan to build a DVR with 6 tuner functionality for this CPU, with all that recording and encoding, I will need the power of 4 cores.

Anybody besides me notice the lease price in the zones.com link?

Gives me wayyyy too many ideas.
