Well only have one option for under $400, that's the 3770k. If you can find a really good deal and stretch your budget a little, you may be able to find a 3930k for under $500.

I got my 3930k for $430 at microcenter or if you are willing you can get them for $450ish on ebay. I think its worth it for the extra 2 cores and all the other features like quad channel memory and a decent motherboard will cost you $230-$260

Where are you located? $400 for a 3770K is extremely expensive. That motherboard is not bad at all, it's actually pretty good, but depending on your budget you may be able to do better.

don't pay $400 for a 3770k. That is too much.
post #7 of 11
$400 is way to much for 3770k. You can buy them for $309 all day on Amazon.com and if you live near a microcenter you can buy them for $229 in store
