Buy now or wait for Conroe? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
looks like the E6600 is the one for me. the E6700 would be nice but cant afford that kinda money, i would like to know how much the motherboards will cost, since current motherboards i dont think will work with conroe.

Just to add a bit of fuel to the fire. I have recently read this article about the Conroe that just may change you're opinion of how AMAZING it will be. That is for you to decide.

That is a personal blog, and as such the writer does not have to follow any form of testing strictures.

As well, the Conroe is not out yet so this and any other idle speculation is just that. One needs to await the Conroe. However, that being said, one can extrapolate from the mobile Core Duo etc and the Conroe tests that have been performed.

I have heard the worst words in my life from blogs so I would not apply much to blogger's blogging blogs

The conroe will be better than any thing available right now...period. They would not have dumped the untold millions of dollars into devolping it if it wasn't. I've always been an AMD guy but I plan to build a Conroe machine about month or so after they have been offically released. Seeing as how it is so close to being released, I would wait for a Conroe...or wait a while longer for the price drops in 939's and P4's that will come from the AM2's and Conroe and still get a kick butt CPU for less. though I believe I have heard that Conroes will start around $250-$300...not up to date on my conversions but I believe that is well with in your price range.
