Have you checked Ascent? (http://www.ascent.co.nz/mn-product-spec.asp?pid=339917)

Looks like they have an 840 in stock.

Sure they are - my supplier has tons in stock....WAY more expensive than an AMD dual-core though.

I have to ask, why Intel?

I don't think there is a review on the net that doesn't rate the AMD dual cores as better peroformers than Intel in almost all situations. And the AMD's are generally cheaper, run cooler bla bla.
