My System Specs

Yeah, I'd rather buy new as you can never tell if some idiot ran his CPU at 1.5 vcore without telling you :P but Intel has such stupid pricing because they are basically a monopoly (sorry AMD, they got everybody optimizing for their specs). So a bit of yes and a bit of no on a potential price drop [on new] when the lga 1366 6-cores get discontinued... It's too bad that the sockets have to change with sandy bridge.
probably new from retail edge, i've heard of as low as 450.
