This tip just made it into my mail box…  Newegg is selling an OEM Athlon X2 6000+ processor that runs at 3.0 GHz, the same speed as the top Athlon FX processors using the 1207-pin Socket F.  It is still a 90nm processor, but should be damn fast.

Current sale price is $599 which pits it against the Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 that is current selling at $519.

I have started a thread in our forums here about this find!
