    Default The last AM2 X2 is here

    I agree, what kind of moron would "not" go with a C2D E6700 at that price,
    and still have enough left over to buy a nice PSU

    Na, no point. Thats just foolish. The 4200 to 4800 can be overclocked to 3.3Ghz pretty easily under air and its good enough for all the regular needs.

    you think there going to redesign it to use ddr instead of ddr2, just to let 939 user's upgrade? LOL, thats funny. they have declared 939 dead and are moving on. why don't you catch up with the times?

    If you really want one - bite the bullet now, they will only go up in price.

    DDR2 memory controllers are backward compatible with DDR. The ONLY reason AMD switched sockets rather than introduce 939 DDR2 chips was that people would've ended up buying DDR2 939 boards and older DDR only 939 procs without DDR2 compatible memory controllers (remember, the memory controller is not on the chipset on A64's) and not have been able to get their PC's to operate or worse still hosed everything for their troubles.

    The only reason for AMD to not offer AM2 chips on DDR would be that they'd be sabotaging their AM2 socket because the 939 owners wouldn't want to do anything other than upgrade procs. That and it's most likely that we'd end up seeing that the new chips perform better with cheaper DDR at lower latencies than with DDR2 at higher cost and latencies which again would shoot AMD in the foot...not to mention their chipset partners.
