I wonder why?

Anyway If you are missing a Am2 CPU or want a minor upgrade it must be some type of clearance of some purchased old stock.

Pentium 4's are there too for an antiquated Intel platform.

So are Pentium D's

wtf. I guess they found some stock lying around in a box somewhere and thought they could get rid of it.

Not a bad upgrade for some older systems, I recently put together an old X2 5000BE machine and it handled everything I used the computer for just fine. Worth noting this machine did no gaming, and software like 3ds max/photoshop I run on my Phenom II rig, however those old Athlon X2s are still decent.

I just upgraded from by brisbane core, not bad. If I could have picked up a 5000+be I'd have probably gone that route instead.

maybe newegg's getting tired of inventorying them year after year. Or sales are so bad they'll try anything.

I gotta say that my 939's are still humming along. the only processors i ever had fail are intel.

The 3400 is singing "Old Man River"
