it will NOT stay put at 316, stupid alvin convinced everybody that resellers will sell then at 316
I repeat again, you will ONLY get a processer for 316 if and only if you buy directly from intel in quantities of 1000. So no, your best bet will be roughly 350 or something around there. I know www.tankguys.biz
and monarch computers have prices around there. Newegg should list the Conroes tomorrow morning.
