Hi, as of today i see 2 posts on pricewatch.com for the 1.2ghz Thunderbird w/ 266mhz fsb... at almost $300

I'm looking for a 1ghz Athlon-C (266mhz fsb)... Anybody know when and where i can get one? So far i can't find one on pricewatch.com, maybe i'm just not searching in the right place?

P.S. - i already know about unlocking the multiplyer to get the 133mhz... but i don't feel safe about tampering w/ my processor, thanks!

Good luck finding the motherboard and ram if u manage to get the processor. Fact is that supplies are scarce for now, you might want to wait till march for lower prices and a larger supply. Plus the 1st generation is bound to be plagued with problems, as with any product.

thanks for the tip but the motherboard/RAM thing is not much of a problem for me as i'm not taking the DDR route... My KT7a-RAID is already on it's way, and while i'm at it, anybody got any tips on the best price/performance on stick of 256mb cas2 pc133? thanks!
