I really dont know. just saw it on a website that i usually buy my pc components from. Its not the shop thats raising the prices though so it could be for USA too. I dont know why they are raising the prices becuase they got new cpu's comin out soon so i would have thought the prices would be going down. Maybe they want to rise it now and then lower it again when the new cpu's come out so they dont lose much money.

What are you on about? we were talking about there current socket 939 cpu's are going up in price! Of course the socket AM2's will be more expensive.

I just noticed, those AM2 prototypes have no second IDE channel.


Uh oh.
