No set dates on that one... I've read its Q3 in some places and Q2 1 place... With such little noise about it perhaps it will be Q3.

Id just stick with getting an e8400. Theres a better chance of it being stock.

[quote=marc from oc3d frontpage news section]
All dual core 45nm E8*** Penryn based models will drop by a whopping $2. This means that as of the 20th the E8200 can be had for $167, the E8400 for $187 and the E8500 for $266.[/quote]
tbh seeing E8200 with multi of 8, will only come down by two dollors making it $167, picking up E8300 for $169 with 8.5 multi is a wise choice. although for spend another $16 will get you a cpu with multi of 9 - E8400.

Question, why does it matter what the multi is?

Can make OC'ing easier, especially if your board can't handle very high FSB. Also gives more options for dealing with RAM dividers and such
