Question where's a good price on a processor

i'm gonna buy a AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor. I need to find the lowest price. so far i've only found them a tigerdirect, and newegg. at tigerdirect, it's about $340, and at newegg, it's about $320. Please tell me if any body knows where i can get it at the lowest price. Thanx for you time.

Newegg's the lowest price I've seen of all the websites I visited. Plus, they are very trustworthy so you may as well order it from Newegg.

Plus, I think Newegg has free shipping and handling on that particular CPU so go NEWEGG!!!!

That's Newegg again. Fastest shipping with FedEx (free) and reliable. Great customer service. Look at the testimonies on that site. THey have the lowest price around. I checked elsewhere and there's always a shipping charge. Newegg doesn't have shipping on that Athlon 64 3800+ so it's a good buy.

Your welcome. To give you a peace of mind, I buy all my parts from Newegg. I haven't once got screwed over by them. I did RMA a Raptor drive once because I couldn't get it working. They accepted with no problem at all and and credited the money back to my credit card. I ordered a lot of parts through them in the last 5 years and they still have the fastest delivery possible. A lot of their products don't have shipping charges either depending on what you get. That is great because a lot of websites will charge it always.

Yup, you're going to own with that system. For the price, it's pretty good. That link on the last part of the list 't working for me. It's so slow getting there. My processes spiked when trying to access that site so I'm weary of it.

i don't know what to tell you about the link, it took about 6 seconds for me. it is a CoolerMaster Cool Drive 4 - Silver. it tells you your computers temp, it's RPM, and other stuff like that. if you want to see it, go to frozencpu.com, and search CoolerMaster Cool Drive 4 - Silver, and then click on the pic with that name.

that is if you want to try that site again not using my link.
