    Why would your sugary marshmallow chickens care?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      I believe AMD processors are going to get a price cut. This is probably just a way for newegg to get rid of them before hand. (smart I might add).

        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.

          the crowd is very slow to adapt in general.

          That's just part of the marketing game.

          Hell, most of the people on this board would be considered early adopters!

            Personally, all my AMD experienses were outstanding, AMD's so much more efficient that Intel processor, and they are mor clock, and mod friendly

            AMD any day, i can't say same about Pentiums, i believe that old IBM power pc processors would outperform intel anyday

              btw AMD has cut prices by 40-50% on most procs.... At least their AM2 models (which happen to have low power chips) were cut significantly

                    seems like a decent deal.......

                    according to this, cpu is 67 watts...

                    Pair this with some cheap ram, a hard drive, a m2-atx. and you have yourself a cheap carputer

                      wattage is decent, but 65 degrees celcius is too low, and hard to cool

                        you mean too high, and thats max temp before it frys...... they usually run 29-33 celcius if i remember right....

                          correct that what i meat, that the MAX temperature for 64 bit processor is to low for automotive environment

                          regular amd athlons max between 85-95 celcius

                            um.... low temp is good for a cpu as far as I know.... is there something Im missing? Heat dissapation and keeping the cpu cool are important factors when building any computer (carputer or not)..

                              pretty good deal

                              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
