Look around rohan, most everything is increasing in price. New technology is always more expensive. Always has been, always will.

Exactly. Socket 775 stuff is still selling like crazy. Don't you think companies are going to jack up the prices for a few months for the crazy fanboys to spend extra on the new CPU? Doesn't matter that much to anymore. I might be selling out my i7 rig. I got a few offers.

What annoys me is the consistency. Intel doesn't have any. It's one thing I really admire AMD for. It's about the people. I know they did this once a long time ago, but haven't since.

Eh, it doesnt matter to me. I want to use my current rig for at least a year, or found a game that I enjoy and want to max out before I upgrade.
Most people in the world arent computer builders or are going to upgrade their computers, so I would assume this wouldnt bother them as much either.

The six-core LGA 1366 Nehalem is as yet unnamed:
As well as it's ($$$$$$$$$$$$$$) price.

Yeah truly is bs. Sorry Intel guys. I looked at an I7 and it was like 700 bucks. Who would shell out 700 dollars for a CPU? that is balls.. Shame on Intel!
