    Default S939 upgrade

    OK, so I've been thinking of buying a set of z5500 speakers, but then the whole amd pricecut buisness came up and now I'm wondering wheather or not to upgrade my CPU instead. At first I thought I'd wait 'til christmas and get myself an X2 4600+, I'm not in such great need right now, but I'm a little worried that there might not be that many s.939 cpu's left by then. I have no idea if this is the case, obviously, so is it safe to wait until christmas, or should I upgrade asap?

    supply shouldn't dry up that quickly, if you really want the speakers I say get them now and the CPU later.

    I think you got that translation perfectly. Now let's talk in wingdings next time, shall we?

    Back to the point at hand, the stock of 939 cpus will not go out for a while. After that, you can easily find a 939 on eBay or Anandtech.

    Socket 939's EOL isn't until Q4 of this year. You can still find Athlon XPs on retail sites (though the price skyrocketed sometime after the release of socket 939), so I'd expect you to be able to find cheap socket 939 processor well into 2007.

    A socket 939 X2 3800 is a very good buy right now. If you want the speakers, go for it, but I know I'll be replacing my 3000 with an X2 3800 pretty soon.

    By the way, if your gonna get such nice speakers, you should get a nice sound card, I bought the sound blaster x-Fi, its so nice but expensive. the audigy 2 ZS is fine I hear unless you already have a nice sound card. The fact is that the price on the speakers is bound to drop, the same thing with s939, so the real question is which one will drop in price the most, you abviously should buy the one that is closest to bottoming out in price. I dont know which one will hit rock bottom sooner but it looks like the athlon 64 will.

    umm ....orangutang91, his sig states that he already has a Digital X-Mystique 7.1 card. From the few seconds I just took to investigate that card it looks like it is at least as good, if not better, than an Audigy2.
