    Fortunately for anybody considering an upgrade to AMD AM2 processors, AMD will be slashing prices on their Athlon 64 processors. Just some examples of price cuts we'll be seeing...

    The Athlon 64 X2 5000+ currently costs $119, and will soon cost $109USD.

    The Athlon 64 X2 5200+ currently costs $124, and will soon cost $119USD

    The Athlon 64 X2 5600+ currently costs $149, and will soon cost $139USD.

    If you think about it, with the low price of amd's processors now they're still pretty competitive when it comes to a low price point.

    Really prices of processor to performance compared to Intel isn't that good. But when you factor in a good mobo...Intel's are alot more.

    :toast: Well, I am glad to see the prices coming down. :roll: I paid $180 for my opteron 170 and I am still content with it. :D With prices like that when I am ready to upgrade next year, things will be looking good.

    I think they're for socket AM2. Because socket 939, the highest is 4200 and is currently at $70.

    You all suck. I paid $600 for my 4400+.

    Does this mean the 5000+ Black edition will drop in price? I might have to build a budget AM2 rig just to play with (replace this overpriced pile of crap 4400+...basically)

    I hope so, I have my eye on the 5000+ BE, so I can get my OC on, for once.
