Pull trigger now or wait to see if price drops?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
OK so i have already picked up a ZOTAC GF6100-E-E AM3 and a CORSAIR CX430 in BF sales. Now i am looking at paring them with a Athlon II X2 270 and this ram, I have a spare HD laying around that i would use. My purpose for this build is for a Linux box that will fold till the price of HD drops down to normal price again then i intend to make it a file server.

Now the ? is do y'all see the price on the CPU dropping in the next 2-3 weeks? i don't really due to the age and i normally see newer hardware go on sale.

Also what do y'all think of that set up?

Pretty decent for the price and purpose. Nothing beats the 270 for the price/performance, go for it thumb.gif
