Intel Core Duo E8400 bargain

  Stuartli 15:18 02 Feb 2008

If anyone is considering upgrading or improving their system, there's a bargain just becoming available in the form of the Intel Core Duo E8400.

Both Scan and CCL are about to get it in stock at £130 including VAT - the outgoing E6750 is still being offered at around the same price...:-)

The E6850 is around £180.

thanks for that:(

Guess who built a new system in November, around an E6750. :)

Got to say though, that being an AMD man for around a decade, there is clear daylight between the Intel and AMD cpu's.

The E6750 is still a rather quick CPU...:-)

Stuartli - Overclockers website says they have them in stock, maybe that’s why they're charging £205!

I've taken the plunge and ordered it from DABS. The order says that it’s due into them on 25 Feb. I will keep you all posted.

Thanks for the responses and the link to the post about the E6750/6850. I was looking at those 2 CPU’s last year for my new PC but I wasn’t in a position to go ahead with it then - I’m glad now that I wasn’t.
