Why would you want to buy one right now?? They are about 700 bucks? I'd wait till the price drops.

Newegg.com has them though. Not sure about Mwave.com, but they might.

but at $700us and up, it's a bad idea to buy right now

googlegear.com has em', really good place to buy stuff. They had my P4 in my hands less than 24 hours after I clicked the "order" button. Great place!:D Eh, I think I am gonna hold off on P4 3ghz until feb when I get GeforceFX, so this x-mas I won't be puttin' in a shiny new CPU, lol. Bah! :mad: :D

Intel charges so much over same performance AMD it's unreal... I don't know why ppl buy them except they lead a bit in performacne but suck for value compared with amd.

its that microscopic bit of performance lead that people will shell out hundreds just to say that they have.

Meh, shouldn't be too long before they drop. Newegg had the 2800+ for around $525 a few weeks ago and its already down to $399.

eh.... Intel has had their paper launches as well.

All companies have their ups and downs. I wouldn't hit on AMD for their paper launch, when Intel has done it before, granted not too recently, but they've still done it.

i think you have the wording backwards. Intel has done a paper launch, but AMD has been doing paper launches. the emphasis on the fact that AMD has paper launched multiple processors, where a second was done before the first one even hit the streets.

Intel has not been guilty of it over the length of time that AMD has, for example where are the Athlon 2800+s even now? can you get them in OEM systems yet? certainly not on the street.

the only recent paper launch Intel has done is the 1GHz P3, which was limited to select OEMS for quite a long while before it had any sort of mass availability..

eh... this seems to be the way of it... Nvidia did it with nforce AND nforce2!
