Default wow! price drops!

prices are hitting rock bottom for cpu's....

this competition is nice!

For example:
AMD 3500+ ($121)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103633

Intel 511 ($98) *lol since when can you get a brandnew p4 for under $100?)

Whoa. Hopefully VibeComputers does the same. Their 3500+ is already at 135 CANADIAN. Would like to see it go lower than that...

AMD will most likley put the Semprons on this socket. They are great buys if you use single threaded/one app at a time. And games will still be good on single cores for atleast a year and a half I would have thought.
