Price drop for PhII?

Now that Thubans are coming out, would the prices drop for the AM3 Phenom iis? I'm looking into the newest 3.2-3.4 versions, and I'm not sure if I should wait until Thubans, because I heard they were coming out mid-May. Do you guys think it'll be worth it?

  1. If the 6-core Thuban does come out at $200, I don't see the P2-965 staying at $180 for long (Newegg price anyway).
  2. I can see the prices dropping, but the question is how fast after release. Thuban should be out at the end of April so it should be soon. It couldn’t hurt to wait.
  3. I think the older Am3 will fall to AM2+ prices while LEO shines as the new guy.

    The Phenom IIs are incredibly cheap to begin with... thinking about them becoming even cheaper than they are now seems impossible (though it appears that it may very well be possible).

    I already have a Phenom II X4 955 and a Phenom II X3 720 (unlocked). If they drop in price I may ditch the X3 720 and get an X4 965 instead.
  5. hmm. so it's pretty likely for a price drop. Is there a noticeable difference between the 965 and the 955? I'm kind of on a budget build, like around 400 for the CPU+RAM+Mobo+GPU.
  6. I dont't think you will be able to get a 955.
  7. I'm assuming it will be 140 after the price drop + 60 for mobo + 80 for ram + 130 for a GPU.
    That's a little over 400 right?
