It's only $5 cheaper ($180 vs $185 for the 3470), and is a fair amount slower (3.1GHz / 3.3GHz Turbo vs. 3.2GHz / 3.6GHz Turbo for the 3470).

That, and it lacks an IGP (which I find useful for redundancy were your primary video card go out). As such, the 3350p just isn't that good of a value.

The i5-3470 is the value king of non-K i5 CPUs (currently $185 @ Amazon), so if you go the CPU route, that's the chip I'd pick.
That's not how Intel works. The previous-gen Sandy Bridge chips cost just about as much now as they did when they were first introduced in January 2011. The same will hold true for Ivy Bridge chips when Haswell comes out.

I'm talking about used, I'm thinking people will probally start selling their ivy bridge cpu's once the haswell is released
