Very tempting. I have an old single core AMD still running. Maybe worthwhile to upgrade now. Is there a low cost mobo to match? I already have 3 spare sticks of ddr3, a Corsair tx750w psu. A soon to be spare ATI 4850 video card.

Socket F chips, only take DDR2. Not really a good deal, since you'd have to spend a lot on finding a dual chip Socket F board. You're better off buying an 8 core bulldozer.

$250+ motherboard from what I saw, double the price of DDR3 for DDR2, not really worth it...

May as well go with a $150 PhII X6, and a $75 motherboard.

Not a bad deal if you have a socket F setup that will take these processors and you want an upgrade. No good for anyone else though.

Thanks. I'll keep my single core amd for a while longer (it runs at 3.0 GHz oc). I am just using it to watch videos from the internet.

I got excited until I saw Socket F. Sourcing a Socket F motherboard is stupid hard, in the end you'll pay more than just going modern.

If this could use Rdimm DDR3 I'd buy one in a second.

Have 16gb of this stuff sitting on a shelf and nothing to do with it.

Oh yeah, that is true, have any questions on that, ask me, my 2P folder is socket F. The price is good but I got my 2 hexacores 2419 at 80$ from ebay, shipping inluded, 80$ was for both of them!
