Default Opterons going up Athlon X2 going down


Opteron prices are going up (although not by much), with an exception to the Opteron 180, and the dual core Athlon 64s are taking a pretty nice cut off in price.

It all starts on the 23rd so if your going to buy an Opteron soon, do it now; and if your getting an Athlon X2 just wait a little longer.
