Intel CPU Prices
Aug. 16th Aug. 24th Drop(%)
P4-1.3GHz/400 (OEM) $133 $132 0
P4-1.4GHz/400 (OEM) $152 $126 20%
P4-1.5GHz/400 (OEM) $228 $139 40%
P4-1.7GHz/400 (OEM) $314 $199 37%
P4-1.8GHz/400 (OEM) $552 $275 50%

Can anyone explain to me this Socket 423 thing? I have heard that buying a P4 right now is kind of worthless because Intel will be changing over the socket design in a month and be making any future upgrade very expensive because you need to buy a new mobo?

Steve
