Competition brings P6X58D-E’s price to record low.
Overclock3D recently reviewed the ASUS P6X58D-E and we were more than impressed, at the time of the review the beloved P6X58D-E was priced as low as £170.57 however now CCL have priced the P6X58D-E at an impressive £159.99 Inc. VAT.
While it doesn’t seem like a lot the new price point for the P6X58D-E actually puts the mid-range X58 board neck to neck with mid-range P55 boards, and since we couldn’t find any flaws with the motherboard at all this motherboard brings the X58 platform alive considering you could buy the P6X58D-E, an i7 930 and 6GB DDR3 PC3-12800CL8 RAM for under £500.
Scan and Overclockers UK have gone one step further and began a pricing war between the two of them. Their prices both currently stand at £149.99 however we’re very curious as to how long the prices will stick since Overclockers UK have it marked down as ‘This week only’ and say they’ll withdraw the deal on Monday 2nd August. Will the prices remain that low or is it just a short term marketing plan?
