 AMD releases budget dual-core CPU

I may have to build me a new machine based on this chip. Sounds like a good deal.

"AMD's recent dual-core Athlon releases have been noteworthy as much for their high price as they have been for their performance. While the Athlon 64 X2 4800+ took Intel's best out behind the cafeteria, beat it up, and took its lunch money, it was also expensive, coming in at US$1,001 per CPU in quantities of 1,000 at its release. By way of contrast, the new budget Athlon 64 X2 3800+ is a comparative bargain at US$354."
