Where? thats a good $600+ worth of stuff there.
since i work in retail, intel has a retail program where you do online training and you get points. at the end of the year if you have enough points they offer a board processor combo with a copy of windows. this year they were offering the q6600 or if you had enough points the q6700. the price difference between the 2 was 30 dollars. and on newegg the q6700 is going for $539

For the average user, you are generally better off for home/gaming use in getting the fastest dual core processor with the most cache rather than a quad core at this point.

Why not to get a quad core processor:
