Ram wise it uses and DDR2 the non extreme editions use a max of DDR800 which is pretty standard and EE versions go up to the 1066 DDR2.
Mobos any 965 or 975x intel chipset motherboard whould be compatible however you are correct in them being difficult to source. However all the big manufacturers have compatible boards out now its just a case of looking for places with availability.
Price wise the prices of $530 released for the 6700 came from the intel listing of the reccomended pricing and small order buys that will be roughly the price you will buy them from intel direct so thats the base price the stores will obviously be adding a bit more to that to cover costs and make a neat profit. If you shop arounf youll probably be able to get it a little cheaper than 600, also mobos being in short supply they arent cheap at all.

As long as the cpu fan is for a lga 775 socket cpu or it will say socket lga 775 supported then it will work... Many cpu fans have brackets and adapters that work with several sockets..
The Conroe processor uses the same exact socket 775 slot as earlier 775 cpu's this means that if a fan will be compatable with a pentium d Dual core Processor then it will certainly fit the Conroe which is dual core also..
Yeah, nowhere on the net is a fan specifically for the conroe so dont get worried, its the same size as a pentium D dual core cpu is..
Look for any type of Lga socket 775 fan that would be normally compatible with a Pentium D chip.

They are made by dynatron and I have never personally bought one but Id rather get a good company like zalman or thermaltake if you wanted an aftermarket cooler.
The stock fan that comes with the conroe cpu is sufficient aswell like warriorscot said.

And about buying the retail CPU- I can't find a retail CPU online, just the OEM, and I believe that if you buy an OEM processor that means you have to purchase the heatsink and fan seperately.
