When new processors come out, the price of existing processors will drop. This is not the major price drop everyone is talking about. And no, an AM2 3800+ for $110 will not be hard to counter seeing as its a single core chip and both Intel and AMD will be practically giving them away.

This is a nice price drop. I'm pondering if I should upgrade my Opteron 146 which isn't overclocking worth a crap to a 939 skt dual core after the Core Duo's release.

I can get it to 2.6ghz max . I'm running it at 2.5ghz though, because that seems to be more of the sweet spot for my RAM. At 2.6ghz I have to lower the memclock frequency to 133mhz from 166mhz since my RAM can't handle the overclock for some reason.

It's the G.SKILL RAM right above value RAM (red heatspreader). It isn't stable at 217mhz. This might have to do with not modifying the timings, I'm not sure. But it's not negatively impacting my performance any so I'm not going to waste time trying to squeeze 100mhz more out of my processor.

Oh, ok. I thought you were talking about the ridiculously expensive G.SKILL ram, which is supposedly "godlike" at OCing.
