Upcoming AMD Price Cuts

In what seems to be a grab at the mid-range market, AMD has given word on price cuts across the board on their CPUs, ranging from 10-20%.

ProductOld price ($)New price ($)
Phenom X4 9950 BE             186175
Phenom X4 9850 BE180165
Phenom X4 9750170154
Phenom X3 8750134124
Phenom X3 8650123104
Athlon X2 6400+10287
Athlon X2 6000+9577
Athlon X2 5600+8870
Athlon X2 5400+7866
Athlon 64 LE-16404036.50
Phenom X4 9750B224165
Phenom X3 8600B---110
Athlon X2 5400B---71

Considering that Intel's latest Core i7 platform is targeting more of the high-end market, it looks like AMD is trying to entice lower-level buyers with the idea of bang for the buck.

Will these cuts help AMD gain more ground and help set up their 45nm Phenom II launch?

These SSD have been out for an age now, does any1 have one ? or know any1 with 1 ?

Personally for similar prices, I buy a 1Tb drive, and actually be able to store more than the 10 movies this reports to transfer faster.

I've seen some people on Overclock.net who have them, but I don't know those people personally.

The future of any tech is pricey. Just gotta wait for more to come out, people with deeper pockets to buy them, and they will drop. Look at DDR3 for example. Same thing really.
