Cheesubs...WHAT ARE YOU ON?
The athlon 2 250 is a much cheaper cpu than an e8400? How the hell don't you know that?
i only knowing that microcenter and compusa sale it cheaper than athlons, also some local retailer sale it cheaper since it's an year old product and athlon 2 x2 250 is new product as these retailler do not wish to lower the price despite athlon's performance much less than e8400.
i dont know about etailer like amazon and newegg, but as i look up on their e8400 i can tell they can control the price as e8400 is the top sell processor.(go look at it, it's the top rate right now) making it expansive will bring huge profit to these etailler as less popular product like q8200 sale as low as 109 because of low profile. so basically these info aint correct
