Xeon processor lineup in August

If it weren't for the fact that I moved from Japan to Germany, I would be all over the Q6600. I'll wait to see how my bank account looks next month.
If things look good, I'll upgrade to the Q6600 with a new mobo to boot. My old mobo and E6600 can go to my older machine, course will need some mid-range DDR2 and vidcard to match.
