    Well, now that mine has been reserved :)D) I can let everyone know http://www.macotechnology.com.au/ probably have a few E6600's left today, I got mine $536 including delivery. At least, they said they had stock for me, i.e. I haven't actually received it yet.

    I ordered an E6600 from scorptec. Confirmed in stock. $550 including shipping to Darwin. :D I almost ordered from pluscorp but I just couldn't swallow the $575 price... factor in $15 shipping and wooowee.

    It does but pricematching is up to Pluscorp's discretion. I did look at it but at the time, there was only one listed in stock. What's the chances of Nigel giving me a yay on that, considering demand? Not bloody likely and by the time I'd gone through the hoops of enquiring and waiting for an answer, it would have been snapped up. At $590 (factor shipping) I'll pass thanks. Mind, I did pick up my 150GB Raptor from Pluscorp for a wee $407 which I was quite pleased with. :D OCAU sponsor Netplus now has them for $398 including shipping which is quite a bargain.. relatively speaking of course.

    Back on topic. I don't even know which mobo to pair the E6600 with. Computer Alliance has a nice deal on the DFI 975x infinity and then there's the Bad Axe to consider.... or perhaps an Nvidia SLI solution ala the ASUS P5N32 SLI SE Deluxe.

    I have checked a few places and they still have stock available for the E6600 E6700 and X6800. I thought people would be snapping up the E6700 by now. So Conroe went from not enough quantity to plenty within the last 2 days.
    I might get my husband a E6700 for a gift.
