For months, we have had no idea how much an nForce3 Opteron board was going to cost.
Now we have a price. Well, actually, we have two rather different prices.
Newegg shows a price of $199.99.
Newegg says the product won’t be available until August 1. The others at least give the impression it’s available now.
We have two possibilities here:
1) Newegg got the price wrong or
2) The others are getting while the getting is good.
I would lean to the latter.
Given that the cost of the cheapest Opteron with this mobo makes a PIV/Canterwood combo look cheap, I don’t see a stampede in the making.
