    Poenanie - I don't think Scan ship to Belgium. But if you *really* want one maybe you can make an arrangement with a UK bit-tech member to order one for you and then ship it to Belgium for you?

    Not to pick fault, but this has kinda lost the edge, seeing as Hexus has just announced the same news. I cant see any mention that this has been coz bit-techers have demanded it :/

    There was a single thread, that ChrisP said it wouldnt be possible, or am i missing something :p

    This is great, this means that I can surprise my friend with uber high clock speeds! And cheap too.

    There were at least 8-10 requests in the Q6600 thread in the Scan forum and there have been many more people saying "I'm holding out for a G0" or words to that effect in the various other Q6600 threads (including the discussion thread for the Q6600 Overclocking article). I don't read hexus and therefore I don't know how many requests there have been over there, but there has been more than a few requests here, so I'd imagine there were requests on hexus too - put it this way, I would be surprised if there wasn't.

    The fact is that quite a few bit-tech readers have requested this, Scan has recognised that there is a significant demand for the product and has satisfied the request.

    Oh boy! I was going to by myself a Q6700 but I think I'll plump fpr this one now and splurge the savings on a shiny new P35 board to put it in.

    God bless Scan

    PS Anoyone heard anything on the new 24" Samsung widescreen monitor yet? The specs look impressive for a sub £400 screen.

    They are mixed - there is currently no certainty on whether you get the G0 stepping or the older version. If your not going to overclock or are not after a "silent" PC probably makes little difference to you.

    I know... I remember paying £520,-- for a pair of Opteron 250's --and that was practically half-price. Fast forward less than four years, and you can get the equivalent of four CPUs in one tidy package for £170,--...

    Of course, prices for GPUs are going the other way. :hehe:
