Well I suppose it's better than spending money on gambling, drugs,
other women or fast cars. At least it keeps you home nights.

It's hard to keep up these days. The reason for the great deals on
939 CPUs is that everyone wants the new Intel chips these days, and
the 939s lock you into DDR RAM while everyone is moving to DDR2. Very
few people actually need fast CPUs, video transcoding and HD playback
are a couple of the rare exceptions, even the gamers really need GPU
power, not CPU punch.
The memory controller on the CPU is both a blessing and a curse I guess.
