    Opterons generally cost more. Now, the only way that we can assure Newegg doesn't go off price-gouging again, is to buy them slowly.... if that makes any sense? I'm sick of thier damn pricing!

    Sweeet! Even if they are redistributer pricing, they are waaay too cheap for a quad-core.. Imagine the price of a dual-core one.

    It is very likely more than $300 for the cheapest, and unless it performs way better than expected it will not be worth that much. The 2.0~6400+ dual core, and that bodes poorly imho. I hope I am wrong.

    Now $250 would not be so bad, but still depends on performance.

    Really, I like those prices... even for an AMD processor with 65nm. When they come out, we will see who is going to be the champion: Phenom or Penryn:confused:

    Wait, these are the chips that are outperformed by Intel currently offerings clock for clock, right? And AMD is charging more for them? I don't see how people are saying this is a good thing.
