Have you been seaching the web for the actual release to public date and price of IB 3770K cpu without success?
I preordered one earlier this week and have recieved an e-mail from my supplier stating my order is ready to collect, do not release untill 28th April and the price is £300 inc vat.
Seeing as Intel has said that the prices of the chips will be a little cheaper than SB equivalent which I believe is the 2700k that sells for £238 thats quite a price gouge.
Does anyone have an idea/guestimate on how many weeks it will take for the prices to drop a bit as I'm feeling the pain on this a bit right now.

Novatech, but it isn't listed on their site yet. I got an e-mail conformation that gave the details.

the link is me. No one has put up prices or release to public dates. I expect Amazon et al will put it up for sale at midnight uk time today.
I just tried to give every one a heads up on pricing and availability.
As I said befor I preordered one so recieved an e-mail informing me of price and when they would let me buy it.
Rather crazy that it is just sitting in their store room and that as they want to gouge me an extra £50 app and make me wait an extra two days is a ****a.
I'm thinking of dropping my order and waiting till prices drop, hence my question on how long it usualy takes for that to happen after a release date. question still stands.
