Yeah...if you can find them! Supplies of the 165-185 have been running quite dry. I know Newegg has frequent stockouts and it ain't because of popularity any more...they're just not getting them in.

btw will retailers have to incorporate these prices? if opteron 165s are in demand, why charge $164 when u can continue charging $270-$280 that im seeing @ some retailers (in canada) due to supply and demand.:/
