Default The Venices have gone mad!

So I've recently been helping build two budget computers, both of which were to have the cheapest s939 Venices, and now everything's gone wild.

The 3000+ used to be about $150, and the 3200+ was something like $160, so I suggested the 3200+ for both computers, but then the 3000+ disappeared and the 3200+ jumped to nearly $180. So I did some research, and it appears that the two of them have been discontinued in order to make room for new processors with better stepping.

Today the 3000+ reappeared at newegg for $190! And the 3200+ is still $180. I'm guessing the prices will settle down once demand is met. Just thought I'd get this out there.

That is rediculous considering back when 64bit was being thought of i got a CPU-mobo combo for 90$ that included my 2600+ and Shuttle board.

They could be a different core or socket. One might be a Winchester and the other a Venice.
