Weekly CPU Pricing Guide

Weekly CPU Prices - Week of February 2, 2009

By SharkyExtreme.com Staff February 5, 2009

Welcome to the Sharky Extreme Weekly CPU Prices. This is a weekly update on CPU prices we find around the net.

We have several different tables to help you find what you are looking for, sorted by manufacturer; (AMD or Intel) sorted by price; tables showing only high-end or low-end CPUs, all to make your research and subsequent buying decision a bit easier. Use our handy "jump to" feature at the bottom of each page to quickly get where you need to go.

If you are new to this feature and are wondering just exactly how we get these prices, and how YOU can get them, the last page of this guide describes our search methods. Please note that most prices listed were found using PriceWatch and are only for phone orders, requiring that you call the vendors and tell them you found a specific price on PriceWatch or "on Sharky Extreme's Weekly CPU Price Guide, which uses PriceWatch." Also please note that prices change daily, while our guide is only updated weekly; so you will need to get an updated price.

So without further ado here is the Weekly CPU Pricing Guide...

AMD Comments

Most of the processors we track in the AMD sections of the guide continue to show steady pricing, with only a few dropping at all and none by more than single digits. The biggest price cut, hitting the Phenom X3 8450, was only $7, which is coincidentally the same amount that both the Phenom X4 9650 and 9750 increased by.
