AMD has cut the price of its desktop dual core CPU variants. The 6000+ running at 3.0GHz is only $241. Though, since AMD now owns ATI, I cannot support them fully anymore since they do not provide any open source drivers that run with any speed compared to other companies. Intel provides open specs and at least Nvidia provides proper binary drivers (though not open source).
