    Thats a solid deal, but it's AM2. Alot of 939 boys would have jumped on that.

    Hey! Nice finds and thanks!

    Wish I would have waited a week or so when I bought my x2 3800+ AM2! Since I have a SFF case and a mATX PSU, I needed the low power version and Newegg.com had the lowest prices on them at the time.

    Yeah, I was about to say, I have one of those 3800 single core things. Performs quite nicely for what I need it to do. If I really want more performance, I'd definitely invest in a new GPU before a new processor. Even then, this processor has quite a lot of performance hidden away. If I had the money and the need, I'd buy another gig of RAM, a powerful CPU cooler, and then overclock :).

    Good eyes, I didn't even notice. I was too busy wondering why is said 130nm in the specs.
