DDR ram has gone up in price if you have noticed. DDR2 ram is also going up in price - but you can buy comparably faster DDR2 ram for the price of DDR ram.

I bet you could find some really good deals on 939 stuff because everyone is going with the newest technology and purging their old stuff.

K8L, due mid 2007, is a fairly large change and should result in a significant increase in power compared to current K8 processors.
