3GHz Socket 939 OPTERON for $200?!
Again we have one of those special low dollar "Gifts" this time from AMD, the OPTERON... just in time for Christmas! "But Opteron is a 940 pin CPU for servers only" you say? Well not any more, AMD has been kind enough to start making them for 939 pin boards a few months back with little notice by the mainstream desktop users.
It all began last week my good friends SpikeShot and Captain Planet sent me a link on them in a IM convo. Spike was looking for a new CPU, and Capt. started looking around a bit and came across this. We all ordered them, just too see if it was true and not a one shot deal...all of us got the good stepping CABYE, each screaming away at 3GHZ now!
