After getting two 2500k's for $100 (Microcenter firesale) a year (or two) ago, every CPU seems overpriced.
Anyways, I am trying to update a few older rigs and found a 2300 locally for $150, emailed the guy and he said that he could do $130. I don't know, that seems a little high to me, not a bad deal, just not a low as I feel it should be.

If you were trying to find the cheapest quad core 1155 i5, what would you pay for it?

    I don't think that's too high if it has been treated well.  There's a used one on eBay going for $130 right now as I write this.

    And I agree—Microcenter has terrific prices on stuff sometimes. thumb.gif
