Hmm, don't know about CPU's though I know the video card prices will drop with Nvidia on the higher end cards which will then cause a ripple effect all the way down. I'd guess in about a month or so... though its just a guess.

I hope this helps

Nik00117 could you also possibly make your sig 5 lines? thanks

The problem is that sales are rising, and therefore prices tend to get up,
so in this circumstance, staying the same is almost less expensive...
