Although I'm not a huge fan of Tigerdirect and their pricing games, this is a 2nd time I have seen this deal appear for the AMD 940 Quad and its hard to pass up:

I picked up 2 of these the last time they were this price. You can't go wrong at this price! :bounce:

Correction, this is the 920 @ 2.8. Still a sweet deal...

The better buy is when I got this 940 CPU open box for $67 plus shipping, For a total of $72. Check out my New Egg review.

Thats awesome. I had picked up an Athlon II 930 for 70 bucks on ebay. It came damaged and the seller refunded 40.00 and I straightened the pins and kept going...

They were actually bent pretty badly. I had to straighten a little over a dozen pins in which some were slightly bent on one end of the cpu to the other end that was bent between 15~20 degrees.

I figured it would probably work after straightening but in the back of my mind I was a little concerned, lol.

Please spare the fanboy comments. I'm no fanboy as I have had Intel and AMD cpus and were very pleased the entire time I had both. Theres a good deal to be had on both camps bro, sorry.

I'm not going to allow this thread to be turned into an Intel vs AMD segment. It's not at all the reason I posted this thread...
