| By Christmas, you'll get it for less, but for this price point, you'll

| Yes, quad-core and I've got it overclocked from 2.66Ghz to 3.0Ghz. The
| Q6600 is running $249.99 on Newegg. Mine is at $539.99. I've heard
| that's it's pretty easy to overclock the Q6600 to 3.0Ghz as well.

Grr, you people with disposable income :P
