    AMD has announced price cuts for its mid- and low-end Athlon 64 X2 processors. According to AMD's website, pricing for high-end Athlons, including the FX series, X2 5600+ and 5400+ remains unchanged, while the X2 5200+ saw a hefty cut from US$403 to US$295. The price of the single-core Athlon 64 3800+ also fell from US$108 to US$101, however, the price of the slower 3500+ remained unchanged. Prices for the lowest speed CPU, the Athlon 3200+ is no longer posted on AMD's website. Pricing for the lowest-end Sempron processors also fell with the 3200+ being reduced from US$67 to US$51, and the 3000+ (both 256KB and 128KB L2 cache versions) falling from US$56 to US$41 all in 1000-unit tray quantities.

    I doubt you will see a change in 939 processors since they arent making them anymore and are kinda scarce.

    I agree on that point, most 939 prices went UP. I am thinking about making the jump to AM2. I have my eyeballs on that X2 3600 brisbane :D.

    yea im thinking about am2 but i really wanted to ride this 939 board until the bitter end. of course, with my X2 3800+ ill have to upgrade the cpu before i even thnk about a dx10 board cause no point in bottlenecking a 500 dollar card.

    If you hunt around there are some good deals to be had on the Opty 185, 2 cores running stock at 2.6Gig capable on air of 3.2Gig if you have the right mobo and 2 x 1MB L2. Thats a nice S939 upgrade option if you cannot fork out the full AM2 DDR2 etc thing.

    Nice to see some changes. But, why still produce the socket 754 cpus and not hte more popular 939's?
