Price Guides July 2004: CPU and Motherboardsby Anand Shimpi & Laura Johnston on July 23, 2004 9:32 PM EST

Prices have been dropping for 32-bit hardware for quite some time and now it seems as if 64-bit counterparts are following suit. With deals popping up left and right for motherboards and processors we took a look at them and came up with our picks for this week.
As always, be sure to visit our RealTime Pricing Engine for the latest prices and deltas on the items featured in this guide, as well as many other products.
We have a few announcements for this week as well; the first being AMD's premature launch of Sempron. We were all anticipating the launch of Sempron to accord August 17, but it appears AMD has moved up the launch date (to what we can't say right now). Be sure to check out our early Sempron coverage from last month for more details.
Furthermore, to whet those with an expensive palate, Intel will start sampling 925XE motherboards next week, so get ready to start seeing processors with 1066FSB benchmarked! You can read our previous coverage on 925XE here and here.
