not so sure. Sure the new duos and solos are whipping the turions, but intel is making a ton of layoffs, and the public is getting fixated on AMD, from all the reports of n00bs that saved money on their AMD setups and had good experiences.
I always feel like the crowd moves very slowly when it comes to being on the ball with PCs. Not that I should talk, the fastest system I have is a 2.4....but then again never needed anything faster as I don't game.

I just picked up a x2 4400 for about half of what it was a month ago.
you could also get this deal and then underclock it. would use less power and then throw on a decent heatsink with a 92mm or 120mm panaflo, would be nice and quiet. I think its a pretty decent deal considering the 64 3000 is about 70 bucks itself, and this is the 3400 w/mobo
