No worries.

And actually the x4 965 is on sale right now for $98 (at ncix you have to go through their sale links to get the sale price...if you just browse the site it usually comes up at regular price).

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Quad Core Processor AM3 3.4GHZ 8MB Cache 125W 45NM Retail Box
