    The Price Guide shows the 3.4 GHz Intel Prescott CPU available at Essential Computers. Going to Essential's website, it shows the processor "In Stock", and "Available to ship in 24-48 hours." I tried to order one, only to be greeted with a "Cookies Must Be Enabled" message. I HAD cookies enabled, and even double-checked my IE settings to be sure. So I called them, and was told that they don't have the 3.4 Prescott in stock and have no ETA, regardless of what the website shows.

    This appears to be a ploy to get their name in the listing without having the item available as stated. I find that pretty offensive, and would like to see their listing removed from the guide.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Why aren’t any SiS based motherboards listed for either Intel or AMD platforms. I mean if you can list a board from XFX (who the heck are they?) that only supports FSB speeds up to 333MHz (socket A) and a board from ECS (a company that is not popular with the enthusiast crowd) why not include a SiS motherboard that can at least run a 400MHz FSB (socket A) from a well known company like Gigabyte, or the Asus P4S800D-E Deluxe (SiS 655TX chipset) that Anandtechs own Wesley Fink commented highly about in a review.

    ehanneken - Yes, youre correct. I meant more along the lines of wait till the leaked samples hit reviews :-p

    <blockquote></i>Keep in mind that the upcoming Socket 939 launch is later this month, so for those of you looking for an enthusiast purchase may wish to hold off a new purchase for a couple weeks.</i></blockquote>

    According to your <a href="http://www.anandtech.com/cpu/showdoc.html?i=1985&q... update</a> on AMD's Athlon 64 roadmap, the first Socket 939 processors won't be released until May. Has something changed?

    No 3.4 Prescott yet? Coupla of extra layers on the N'wood core Xeons. Who's betting on a 3.6 or 3.8 Northwood release?
