Not that I'm getting Core 2 or RAID5 any time soon... *sigh*

Lastly on the last page you mention the price of the E6400 at overclockers as £182 then further on down the page mention that it's "a steal at £152".
Also Tim, in the future could you do some benchmarks that everyone can do at home? For example, I could compare my Super PI for my Athlon XP and the new Core processors to see just how far CPUs have come in the last four or five years.

But then again these are stock Conroe speeds so this could easily all change with abit of overclocking. I can't really compare an overclocked CPU to a stock one... Tim were you allowed to overclock these ones ? If so, spill! The E6600 is getting tempting.... Great read too ;)
