Told you best moment to buy would be november - december : every year the manufacturers will try to get the newest stuff ready for the use in Xmas-stockings ... this year seems no exception, au contraire ... the market is waiting and waiting at the moment with the nice side-effect that the price of the products that have been put on the shelves will plummet at the end of the year. These products are not top-of-the-line but are surely good enough to have a VERY competitive box for another year. Examples of prices that will plummet at the end of the year : GeForce 4, PIV's 533's, AMD XP 2200+, ... :grin: You can bild a very nice setup around these products.
I bought a complete new rig every year, at the end of the year, for the past 3 years. Last year i bought a XP 1700+, KR7A-R, 2x 40GB Maxtors, 256MB PC2400, nice Antec -promotion- case and a 8500DV ... at that time it wasn't top-of-the-line (except for the Abit and the 8500DV) ... but is was very good value and still is a very competitive setup.

This article is for those whose monthly budget doesn't include "CPU" as a category along with "Food" and "Rent"

What to think of this...
heatshielding?
dat zou wel eens samen met de 0.13 micron DE stap kunnen zijn voor extreem goed overklokkende amd's...
als de 2700+ een heatshield heeft, aan 2.17 ghz draait en een fsb van 166x2 heeft, dan zouden we wel eens gelanceerd kunnen zijn voor een terugstap naar amd.
me longing for october...
en dat het gedaan is met de multi-unlocking... I don't give a ****, want ik heb meer amusement gehad met gelockede intel OC dan met geunlockede amd's

Realistically speaking, December will probably be the month that NV30 will be readily available.

@ anandtech.

take or give a few it'll be begining next year.
radeon 9700 will last us 4-5 months which is not bad at all.

nais board.

If we can get that up and running with the october 2700+ (hopefully heatshielded) running @ a 166 fsb async 200 ddr membus.(or 3:4 on membus @ 225 or sth )

if the ddr makers would get ddr that does 225 @ cas 2 252 1t that board with a good cpu wuld gop airborne and start kicking intel butt again.

I therefore hope it still takes a while :-)

For within 2 months: KT333/KT400 mobo + pc2700 cas2 ram + athlon XP 2400+ @ 166fsb (2.5Ghz)
