Wow, Northwoods are $25 now? And FX-62's are $150? Man, I really should just buy new stuff four years after it comes out.

Go for it, I seen plenty of Northwoods at 4Ghz on air. They are also the best Pentium 4's made due to shorter pipeline unlike the Prescott, = better performance than a Prescott at the same speed.
