Anyone think these are going to drop a little more on the 24th, or later? I am looking at the 4600 at mwave ($242.05) and I remember reading that they were to drop to $224. Is that just an estimate or what?

already posted i believe. infact already posted twice.

Mods, make one of these sticky so people will stop repeating themselves lol.

Newegg is Newegg. of course there waiting. they might even go thru a big song and dance to get to those prices. There gonna be like "OMG MASSIVE OVERSTOCK ON ALL AMD PROCESSERS! GET EM AT AN AVERAGE OF 40% OFF (while everyone else is averaging 50%). THIS IS THE BEST DEAL YOULL FIND ANYWHERE!"

and people will b to intised to bother checking other sites. theyll just be like "Newegg FTW. ordered. im so smart :D" and then they go to zipzoomfly and are like. O.O wow there having a sale too. then Zipzoomfly actually does have a sale, and its like 30% the price a week ago. and the dudes all like O.O... hacks.....

lmao, that Opteron 165 price is horrible. Who wouldn't pay $10 to get 3 more multipliers and guaranteed clock speeds? :p

mwave prices are alot closer to the price drop target. Plus monarch takes like 3-4 days just to ship things out.

When you factor in shipping, Monarch is really close to Mwave. Mwave wants $8.50 for 4-7 day ground shipping.

But with Monarch's dirt cheap shipping it pretty much evens out. But like the gentleman above said..it will take them a while to actually ship. Never order from Monarch if you're impatient. ;)

That's me ;) Are these price drops permanent, or promotional? I'd appreciate any details if possible.

To buy that 4600+ or not (I've been thinking about this for the past 2 dys now :( ).

What should I do? Wait till January and go for a new CPU/Memory/Board upgrade with Intel or take the 4600+ and hold out as long as humanely possible? Why can't I be one of those people that still have and love their Athlon XP's (if I had actually bought an XP)?

Going from this 3700+ to a possible quad core CPU would be really neat, but getting cheap dual core now would be awesome too. :confused:
