amd chips down- when will computers follow ?

  benzona 11:27 10 Aug 2006

I've been looking to upgrade for sometime now and had finally settled on the Zoostorm 2-4301 ( with budget of £600 max. is that a wise choice?) then I heard of the AMD price cuts, when,if ever does anyone think the lower price of the chips will filter through to the machine costs and is it worth while holding back on purchase for a while ?

If you're prepared to wait, the cost will go down, that's how it is in the pc world. You buy this months Extra Extreme Supa machine for ££££, next month it will have better specs, and cost less.

Probably almost immediately as the price cuts dates are made known to system manufacturers, distributors etc some time in advance.

point it out to the supplier/builder and ask him for a reduction
