I think its funny how you keep avoiding that microcenter has the 2500k for $179.99

Last I checked, there are no Microcenters outside of the US. And within the US, there are only 23 locations in 16 states.

Since the $179.99 price is only applicable if you do an in-store purchase from them, how is it reasonable at all to use that as a de-facto price in an argument?

Price match it to NCIX. You'll get your 179.99 price.

Did the same with my 2600k, and worked perfectly

YMMV with price match.

http://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/comments/mv55s/i5_2500k_for_17999_at_ncix_must_price_match/

But a discount is a discount nonetheless, I suppose.
