I just saw Opteron 148 make slickdeals frontpage.. 36 dollars shipped.. These opteron prices are absurd! I remember few months ago 148 went for about 150.. or around there.. The conroes are just killing the prices.. What good is the 939's now :'( I always wanted to get my opty naked but didn't have guts to try, maybe i should buy this one and practice on it.. =D

Well, I think those particular prices were a mistake - but in any case yes, prices on them are dropping quickly. We're all trying to blow them out of the channel to make room for new items, so AMD is not only cutting top tier pricing to help push them through the distributors, but many retailers who still have a lot of existing inventory are also slashing prices. Though I imagine you'll see the price go up a bit again in the mid-term, when supplies run dry and there is still enough existing demand from 939 users looking for a cheap upgrade - so now would likely be a good time to buy, if you are so inclined.

The slickdeals was ultimately an incorrect pricing that was fixed quickly. But yes, the prices are dropping...and I'm waiting around to catch them.
