    AMD tech tour, very good deals

    http://cs.silverpop.com/amd/tech_tou...ion_site1.htm#

    Especially the second deal, it's probably a $500 dollar saving because of the Windows Server 2003 license is not cheap. 2 opteron 246s cost least 400, the tyan board is also 400.


    Desktop Bundle - Price = $250
    Athlon

    * — AMD Athlon™ 64 3200+ 939 pin processor
    * — Asus A8N-E Socket 939 motherboard
    * — Microsoft® Windows® XP x64 Edition


    Server Bundle - Price = $500
    Athlon

    * — 2 - AMD Opteron™ 246 CPUs
    * — Tyan Thunder K8SD Pro (S2882-D) motherboard
    * — Microsoft Server 2003 x64 Edition

    Hrm - that server bundle is not THAT cheap ... a system would still end up costing over 1500

    But it seems you have to take the full tour to actually buy it.. ''Attend the AMD/Microsoft Tech Tour 2005 and take advantage of these exciting offers''

    I wonder why they can do this, for so little money..

    And on top of that you also get a dinner

    I'm one to admit when I'm wrong.

    I contacted a representative from AMD and they said that this is indeed legitamate. I'll be looking into this a little deeper.
