I would think that the rumor that AMD was running low on AMD 64 processors is true. THis of course is my oppinon, but I think its shared by many other forum members. I dont even see any more Athlon 64 3500 (90nm) Retail boxes on newegg. at least last time I checked.
As far as pricecuts, I would think first week of februrary may bring a slight change to the pirces. The Venice core being the leading cause. Of course prices could go up as well.
Yea my bro wanted a new PS2 since his old one broke, and I saw them for $150 (canadian) with 5 free games for quite some time, so I go back to make sure future shop still has them in the same deal, but now theyre $200 (canadian) with no free games, I told him I'd get him it on boxing day
But yea, there have been some CPU shortages on the online market, but as far as local PC shops that I regular, theyre prices have all stayed the same, dropped a bit actualy, and they have more than enough of all models in stock.
