Heck, Microcenter's had the 3770K at just over $240 for a couple of months and now they're only asking $230 for them. They don't even carry the 2700K any longer. Newegg isn't usually the best place to find deals... they're just the best place to find almost everything (except custom WC stuff at least)... prices are only decent.


Microcenter 3770K have been $229.99 since last November(I knew cause I bought one) while other retailed still sales at $300+, so that's nothing new and Internet retailers aren't even paying attention to Microcenter 3770K prices since that price is for in-store only.

Lowest i7-2600K Price on Amazon was $249.99 (now $330)and on Newegg it was $269.99(now $320). Both of those were sale prices during last holiday season, not an old product liquidation price(otherwise that price would have occured in May-June instead of November-December).

Retail 3770K price isn't going to drop to $200 at anywhere but Microcenter.

I know, I wish I lived near a MC... just using Newegg as a standard measurement.

Microcenter is special. Newegg and other online retailers will sell it at the lowest $280. You will not find any liquidation sales on CPUs besides at MC or possibly Fry's, and those would be in store only.

Tom's Hardware demonstrated that to play most 2012-2013 games, a dual core is no longer sufficient.

I got a really good deal on a 3770K, RAM and mobo(all 3 for 380) So I'll probably stay on 1155 for the next few years. Was going to wait for Haswell, but couldn't pass up the deal. Hopefully you guys can pull off some insane overclocks with the new architecture, definitely excited for what's to come even if it doesn't directly affect me.

There's also already been precedents to this (VT-d).

The non-K chips can be OC'd up to 4 bins above their maximum turbo speed. So a chip that turbos to 3.6GHz could be turned up to 4Ghz

Tom's Hardware was probably referring to AMD dual core or older intel dual core like core 2 duo. Could you please show me the link for the tom's hardware article?

2nd or 3rd gen Core i3 with a decent GPU is sufficient for any 2013 game. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong.

So it sounds like when I swith to intel I should wait for the haswell line so that a 25/2600k will be cheaper than now? Does not seem to me that the performance of haswell will justify the cost.

BF3 MP would like to have a word with you. Although I suppose that's a 2011 title so... you win. For now.


Dual cores are pretty anemic in SC2 aswell, but that's a 2010 title.
