    You could actually just go to an online store and price it yourself you know. It's not that hard. Really.
    Bugger the cancer. I'm suffering from terminal inertia.

    As most $300 e6300( or $380 e6400) can overclock past that X6800 $1600 monster processor, I would not even slightly consider the X6800 unless you are either wealthy or hell bent on not overclocking.

    In fact if you are to spend that much on a processor I would splash out a tad more and get $1800 QX6700 quad core that easily out perform the X6800

    BTW Intel released new quad cores today, starting at Q6600 $520US
