Thats exactly right. Ounce the AM2 releases the S939 line will drop alot because of the demand for the newer processors.

Yeah, you can't put an exact value on the price drop, but they will all drop accordingly in price once socket AM2 is released. That's on June 6, 2006. or, 6-6-6 for the superstitious.

Yeah, I'd go ahead and buy S939 because the Antichrist's coming the same day as AM2 so you wouldn't even get to use the PC.







Or because June 6 is quite a while aways and if S754 is any indication, S939 will be around for a while.
