Intel’s reseller webpage accidentally

locked out the reseller webpage

Price points could allow everyone to get in on the 45nm...

Looks like the E5405-E5415 might make for some awesome chips on the desktop... Scrap that Q6600 and throw a E5420 in with 12 MB L2 and 45nm for the overclocking headroom. Guess it depends on the socket configuration though.
These chips could would be as tempting as the Xeon 3060's and 3070's which could be had on eBay for nearly the same prices as E6400's... The slightly better QC and fabs on the Xeon chips seemed to provide higher stable overclocks with less voltage for several people I know.

Well, these Xeons will use enterprise boards and memory, so it's not quite as easy as "swapping them out".
However, when the desktop equivalents of these chips hit early next year, your statements will be very true.
