Default Re: Massive AMD Price Drops on X2 6000+ and X2 5600+

While part of me would love to pull the trigger on an X2/6000+ thanks to this, two things stop me dead in my tracks: the fact that I'd need to get new RAM and a new motherboard along with it (which tangentially means yet another full system do-over--and I'm just not that inclined right now), and the fact that it would at best be a stopgap until the Intel quad-cores drop in price or the Barcelona chips come out...whichever comes first.

(Okay, so maybe Supreme Commander would appreciate it. What else would?)

And so, I wait...
Asus P6T6 WS Revolution | Core i7 950 | 6GB Corsair PC3-1600
Sapphire Radeon HD 6970 | Asus Xonar D2X | TSC MM51.6 5.1
Hitachi 1TB + WD & Maxtor 500GB SATA2 | PCP&C Quad Silencer 750W
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 | Apple 30" Cinema Display

Ever notice how the more people talk about something, the more you tend to hate it?
