I have an XP 2400 and since they have quit making the XP line and the Athlon 64s are booming I figured I could get a good price for a 3000 or 3200 to upgrade- but wow! They are still pretty pricey. NewEgg doesn't have any listed anymore and ZipZoomFly, my other favorite place to shop has the 3000 for about $269 and the 3200 for $299! That is still more than my 2400 cost almost three years ago. You can pick up a much better Athlon 64 (at least a 3500) for that price range- though granted you would need a new mobo to go with it. I have some programs I do not want to lose so I really don't want to go the 64 route yet since that would probably require reinstalling everything. I really expeced them to be around $100 to $150. At this price, it is not worth it at all.
