nice prices....but I'm only interested in OC'n an opty so it doesn't mean much to me. And 2-4%? That only a $14 mark up on a $350 chip MAX. Is that really that crazy? I just put more than that in my car for gas. Big whoooop

but then if AMD finds out the collaborative thoughts of people are "Ahh, it's just a mere $14" then they'll raise it again in the future. Oh well, I already bought my CPU

They probably need extra funding to move to the 65nm process.
