    shadow187Hope they don't keep this up. AMD's main thing has been good, cheap quad-cores (Athlon II), and powerful dual-cores (phenomII). If they get the E8400 down...*shivers*.

    I hope they keep this up. It's good for competition and will cause a general lowering of prices.

    Intel does'nt drop prices until Intel feel threatened that Amd pwns. So Lets all pray that amd delivers Phenom III thats an octacore. Then you will see cheap i7's.
