I was on price watch this morning doing my daily updates on price shopping and noticed the Athlon XP 2200 had hit $199, I thought hot damn its going to be upgrade time very very soon. This evening, retailers across the board on pricewatch have lowered prices by 20 to 25% making the lowest price around $154 bucks! $154 for a 1.8GHz cpu is INSANE! My 700 is really REALLY feeling the age, now if I can just convince the wife! Also all the rest of the prices in the XP line also got the ax as well! This is from the current pricewatch.com listing and include shipping prices from the various vendors! $154 Athlon XP 2200 $129 Athlon XP 2100 $103 Athlon XP 2000 $90 Athlon XP 1900 $76 Athlon XP 1800 $68 Athlon XP 1700 $60 Athlon XP 1600 It's a great time to be looking for upgrades!
