Well, you're in Canada bigval, so this totally applies to you. NCIX offers free shipping on the whole order
with certain AM2 X2 processors, like the 3800+. In my case, that means the X2 costs -$38, while the E6300 costs $216.
I just bought a few X2 3800+'s to bring in heavy stuff like UPS's, massive TV's, and other things.
There's a lot of buyers that want cheap used/brand new X2's.
Now, lets all quit beating on Jori and call this a night. My sig is living proof that $30 spent on a 7900GS is better than $30 spent on a C2D, if you can only get a 7600GT without the $30.
