    either

    a.) they're not being produced anymore
    b.) not alot of them are being produced.

    plus intel wants you to get a P4
    then it still depends on whether you need a slot1 P3 or an PPGA 370.
    the Slot1's are more expensive generally..

    sux for upgrading though...
    that's why I sold a P3 Workstation a while back...

    I do not know why the price is that high , what i know is that one PIII 1000 skors the same with one P4-1400 ,in the CPU marks .

    I gues that just ,one New name is not everything , wen we speak about reall performance .

    Intel is just trying to push the sale of P4's.
    What's the most expensive purchase you've made on your miles/reward credit card? Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card Application

    because the intel wants to sell its new cpu and its compitition is the amd athlons wich OWN it.. Now because of that they have to make the price lower.
