    There is only one bad thing , 2x1mb cache cpus

    yeah it put a damper on things a bit, but we're just going to have to accept that they're gone. Though gibbo at OCUK did leave a hint that 2x1MB cache parts will show again on newer model. I'm going to get a 5000+ on friday, can't resist at that price, bye bye 3200+.

    My DFI board is here, i'll post picks soon. My bloody X6800 got delivered to the wrong depo otherwise it would have been here today. Will be here tomorrow. 4GHz here i come, maaaybe

    doesn't matter, i still need one for testing purposes. It may seem like a waste of money but i think of it as an investment.

    No more dual core upgrade planned for me since the price cuts are not happening. :mad:

    it was a little confusing as i don't think many knew there might be some more price cuts in October. Essentially the July 23rd price cuts are the only ones for a long time according to that article, so all the prices you see listed are going to happen and are already in place at some retailers.

    but like it was sai above, the Core 2 Duo models are still better, AMD are gonna find it tough for a while.
