    That's gr8 news for sure but what abt motherboards?
    Are motherboards supporting Conroe available in India?

    motherboard supporting Intel 975X chipset, P965 chipset, nforce4 Intel edition are available in india,

    this is a good news guys, i just hope, Core 2 Duo E6400 prices are smilier to it's $ counterpart, about Rs 11,000+tax

    although the real value killer would be E6300 with Intel G965 chipset

    all motherboards, which are compatible with Core 2 duo power requirment will support it. The problem is, not many board out there support the new power requirment

    Intel 975XBX Rev. 2 & Intel 965 chipset are tailor made for C2D

    i looked & for the indian market, i believe, Core 2 duo E6300 with intel D965SS motherboard will rock. Intel boards are sold here, more then any other brand & D965SS board, provides all the features ever thought of, even the onboard graphics is equivalent to Geforce 6200 in features & maybe in performance, remember it is fully Vista Ceritified & can support full DirectX 10 in hardware, via just a driver upgrade

    Too bad intel is ditching IDE so soon, there are not any SATA optical drivers, so the only way is to use a SATA HD with Pata optical drive

    D965WH is indeed better, but also costly. For the masses a D965SS is enough, despite of being MATX, U get 5.1 channel HD Audio, & hardly anyone goes for 8.1 channel speakers on onboard audio. Besides, this is for the value catagory, where people usualy don't even buy 5.1 channel speakers.

    the onboard graphics are same on both & remember many people don't buy a graphics card at the time of purchasing computer, most of the buyers add one later. For this scenario, D965SS fits best, onboard graphics which is very optimised, sufficiant for Windows Vista, & even light gaming along with a PCI-X X16 slot

    I said, this config will be sold the most, most of the buyers are without much knowledge in computers, those who have knowledge, will sure go for higher end components, but this combo will be the one for the masses soon in india.

    I don't know anything about the pricing, but judging by the previous combo's of intel such a P4 2.4C+865GBF, & P-D 805 with Intel 945GNT, I would suspect that this combo will be arround 13k

    just checked the specs of Asus P5W DH motherboard, quite a nice one, but remember, Xbit lab wanted to overclock the CPU, as it can be a good value overclocker, however how many people u see in india overclocking, not much. besides with the lack of overclocking features,the price also reduces, & this is what the general customar in india wants

    1) All core 2 duo's are not conroes. E6300 is allendale, E6600 and up are conroe. Not fully sure about E6400.

    2)Most motherboards at the moment may be expensive.

    3)At the moment, I don't suggest the majority toupgrade. I think there is stuttering and all at the moment, so first some richies should start using and others should follow suit.

    4)Don't forget to get an equivalent graphic card else your games will still be bad.
