    I'm looking at replacing my cpu (see sig), but i'm not sure what to replace it with. I've been looking at the 4000+ and am very tempted, but would it be worth waiting a few weeks and seeing what happens to the prices of the X2's.
    I read somewhere that there is a 50% price drop due putting the X2 4400 somewhere in the region of £140ish, is this correct and how does this cpu compair to the 4000+ for both games and general use e.g. photoshop and mp3 encoding?

    I thought it was only the x2's with 512k cache that were getting the price cuts...still a bargain though.

    I just read that, seems strange to only reduce the 512's though means the 4600 will be cheaper than the 4400 :D
