Price of an AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+ (Socket 939)

Been looking around to mibi upgrade my Athlon 64 3700+ processor to mibi the AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+ (Socket 939).

You can by barebone systems for under £200 quid now that well surpass the above processor!

Question...
WHY are the prices of these things just as much as they were when they came out?
WHY is a similar AM2 X2 Dual Core 4800+ going for £50?

Been out the loop for a while but my understanding that AM2 was the next better thing leaving the 939 socket behing?

SO why are AM2 CPU's going for penuts compatred to the older slower 939 processors?

either that i am looking on the wrong sites!
can anyone send me in the direction of a AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+ (Socket 939) thats properly priced!?

probably the reason you arn't finding any is because the 939 is pretty much a discontinued item.
EDIT: You can go AM2 w/ CPU, RAM, MB for under way under $200, sorry didn't read your post right... yes, AM2 is better

Stores get months of warning when CPUs are getting discontinued. Therefore, they make sure to clear out their stock. CPU prices fall to rapidly to ever hold on to stock. Old/discontinued means less money only on the secondary market (i.e. eBay)for PC components.
Once again...

Supply and demand, to a degree. They don't make those chips anymore. Thus, to get one means you are getting one of a few. And no use in continuing to produce "dead" technology. They have AM2 CPUs coming out the whazoo, so they can charge far less for them. Same thing with DDR RAM.

I would say either try to find a used 939 CPU, as people will know the real value, and charge accordingly, or just bite the bullet and go AM2. However, with an AGP video card, you would likely have to do a complete rebuild by the time all was said and done.

The joys of having a having a PC!

Don't think i am quite ready yet to undertake the research and process of building another system from scratch!

Off topic - rather ammsuing thing and evidence of the PAIN factor!

My mate just bought one of the latest high end ATI cards yesterday!...
He bought a new motherboard at xmas...new ram...
all nice and dandy and fast - everything compatible and will work on paper...

GUESS WHAT!

the new graphics card will not not connect to the motherboard cause the sata ports are directly in line with the PCI-E slot!...
he can connect the graphics card but ONLY if he disconnects the sata cables!!!

NOW not only do we have to find out what motherboard is best with what graphics card / CPU...

We also some how have to find out (using words and pictures) to see if the parts we bought can actually physically be connected together?!

"I am returning this £400 graphics card cause the poeple that designed my motherboard are daft"

crazy days...lol
