They're selling it for $1389! What a shame. I was going to buy a whole bunch of stuff from them for the PC I'm going to build. But if that's how they do business, I'll take mine elsewhere.

pricewatch.com has em for around $1100, that's way too much for a cpu if you ask me...

Has anyone bought a chip from the Amd store? Since they list the chip as $1031. PIB, that may be the thing to try.

Thats a basic principle of offer and demand...

In this case : 30 cpu available and 50 willing to spend over 1000USD for a cpu... :wink:

Get a damn FX-55 and OC it 200 mhz!!!

...or stay away from the FX line altogether... the performance gain is no where near worth the price differential.

Yes, but for some odd reason my credit card wasn't good enough to order the minimum required 1.000 unit :D

You poor poor working class stiff. 1,000 x 1,000 is only a cool million. Then you could resell them for 1,300 apiece and make at best a 30% markup, which if lucky, might bring a 1 to 4% profit on your cool mill investment. Tsk Tsk Tsk. And to think NewEgg is blamed for this instead of AMD...

Yep, there I was thinking my american express centurion card was good enough for such everyday purchases :)

Actually, I only needed 2 or 3, and I figured I'd just give the other ones away to THGC readers.
