Computer store's around me have started the new price switch,The only price difference i have seen so far is the sempron's being cut by $20,All other's look like they have stayed the same price for now

My poor XP3300+... er.... XP2500+ is sad.

I need to wait until one of my friends upgrades so I can yoink their 754 mediocrity off of them.

I guess I'm going back the the 3400+ socket 754
I would really try and get a 939; it's worth the extra money. Even if you have to get a slower processor. This is all assuming you don't already have a 754 motherboard or anything.

I don't have an old 754 mobo... I'm just really, really, really tight with cash. I'll see if anything goes on sale (doubt it) and buy whatever is affordable. If anyone has some money to throw around, do no hesitate to mail it to this poor college kid. Do we think the affordable processors are going to stay stable pricewise? by that I mean the 3000+ and 3200+ and processors of the like.

on newegg, if i have a 3700 64 athlon in my basket right now and keep it in there, but buy it all on the 2nd (after the supposed price raise) would they charge me what it says in the basket now, or what the price would be then.

I don't know... I seem to remember a while back then the new GFX cards were coming out, that the 9800's and 5900's didn't drop in price much, if not none at all.

Then again, we're talking about CPUs.

Well, the thing is, AMD is slowly getting more and more popular. Maybe they decided the demand is enough to raise prices a little to meet an income quota? Just a thought.
