Do you mean "Was just wondering WHERE I can buy a Phenom 9700 ..."?
AFAIK they are not yet on sale and the early press releases from late last year were done on engineering samples.
It is listed as an item I can buy from a store in the city closest to me. It is listed as available in 2-3 days, as is the Phemon 9600 black box. I have sent them an e-mail to check to see whether they actually do have access to it.
