Hi
I was wondering when AMD would be publishing it's first line of 90nm
processors so that there may be a chance for current processors to have a
price drop. Can there be a small or large price drop on 939 socket
processors during or by the end of August.

If you are wanting cheaper, check www.mwave.com I checked a couple CPU's
off Ed's list, and they seemed to be cheaper than the cheapest he listed.
Not sure why, because Mwave deals on pricewatch. oh well

Ah, that does make a difference. After S&H that does bring them onto your
