Weekly CPU Prices - Week of August 24, 2009 - Page 4

By SharkyExtreme.com Staff August 28, 2009

Entry-Level CPU Prices

The Entry-Level processor selection is comprised of both Intel and AMD value CPUs, which combine a lower overall cost with slightly less robust performance. It's still a great place to get some serious bang for your processor buck, and many gamers love the cost savings that these entry-level processors allow. The following chart groups the Intel and AMD value processor by model and line, and then sorts each of these sections by retail price. While a bit shorter than the High-End price chart, it still gives a very good view of the overall price structure, and eagle-eyed readers will pick out the best buys with little effort.
