Current FX line-up loses in IPC by a pretty decent amount to a Intel equivalent, also uses more power, and requires you to clock it very high to get the same performance(5.0ghz or HIGHER).
Although in applications that use all 8 cores, the FX can even pull ahead of a i7, or be of equal performance(Currently very few programs).
Main thing AMD has going for them at the moment is APUs and HSA. Both really nice, but they don't fit your current needs.
Don't know why Newegg hides some deals, not sure if it's a bug in their system or because the month(end of a LOT of combos) ended. Then again, I've found some pretty great deals they've "hidden" so it might be intentional.
