The socket is dicontinued... meaning, that you need to get socket AM2.

If I recall correctly orders for the remaining 939 end in November. Some of them are already discontinued.<br>
That does not mean there wont be some around... but IMHO the prices will probably go up in a month or so.

yup, and who knows, the prices might go down if they are discontinued, because places will want to get rid of them.<br><br>
Or go up, as some have said.

The increase speculation was "IMHO"<br>
That is what usually happens, but like it was said, they may drop off too if the stock is excessive and hot rise in price for a while.<br>
If you have very good RAM to BU a cood OC get one, otherwise the high end DDR is disappearing too!

Theres still going to be plenty you can pick up on ebay, or shops online that have a big quantity to sell. Look at newegg, they still sell S462's everyonce and a while. The worst that could happen is they become overpriced, right now they're pretty darn cheap.<br><br>
Hopefully I can scratch up the cash to get a 165 before they want too much for them. The egg went from 160$ to 170, now they're at 175$ =/

That's it's thier for-the-future socket, and that AM2 supports DDR2 .. that's mainly it I think ... as far as I remember it, the only sockets/CPU's that <i>aren't</i> being phased out are the 940's ... all the rest is being ported to AM2.<br><br>
[edit]and btw .. the X2 series that thread-starter wanted are avaiable for the AM2 as well .. and cheap too[/edit]
