Is this Microcenter's regular price for the X4 840 or did they lower it even more? I'm really tempted to buy one...

*hmm... it seems like it's their regular price. I'll keep the cash in my account until I need this one. But what a great price!

*This slickdeal mentions it at $59.99 on 10/31.

It has been this price for quite a while, and has been cheaper (they had it for $50 for a bit).
Still not a bad deal.

If your Microcenter has them in stock, your probably better off getting the PII X4 830: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0375737

It's been pointed out many times but the PhenomII X4 840 is really an Athlon II X4, it has no L3 cache. The X4 830 is a true Phenom II with 6mb L3 cache. The L3 cache more than makes up for the difference in clock speed. It's also $10 cheaper, although it's OEM (no heatsink/fan included).

I was gong to mention this, but seems like most of the stores are sold out now. The 830 is a better deal though.

Just want to add some information on the PII X4 840, It's pushing a GTX 460 just fine at 99% GPU usage. Pretty slick deal for a gaming rig running on high\ultra

Just finished building two budget 830 systems. They really fly. The microcenter $20/4gb mystery ram works in case anybody was going for ultra low cost.

Their RAM is a pretty good deal. CPU-Z says they are manufactured by Hyundai, lol.
