    CPUs get cheaper with time, never more expensive :)

    Usually the best price-performance combination is the product two or three notches below the "best". So the 4800 would be a "sensible" buy when 5000 and 5200? are available. If you can't wait that long, at least wait until 5000 has been let loose.

    i was resding over on tomshardware fourms that the cpus will get more expensive as they become more rare, like what happioned with the socket a prossors

    considering that the 4800+ was $600+ about a month and a half ago..i would just go with that

    Once the 4800 is a rarity, you are already better off with any AM2 mobo and the cheapest AM2 CPU anyway :p
