AMD has had a run on their low-end CPUs, and supplies are currently limited.

AMD has the CPus, but they have ran out of packaging materials...

AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard

The reason the prices have went up is also because AMD has moved to the E6 revision for the lower to mid range CPUs.

so, umm, err yeah
