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

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

And so, I wait...
I agree. The fact that it would require a full system do over and close to 600.00 is keeping me away. I'm also waiting for the Barcelona or quad cores to drop in price and then I'll just build another rig and move over to Vista at the same time. Plus I've been on disability since Jan and may be out most of this year so that also plays a major part in this.
