I don't plan to spend over $200 for mine because I am betting on the fact that MicroCenter will price it low again like they always do, so it should be in the $180-200 range.

Either way though, whether those prices are accurate or not... if one gets bumped up the other will be bumped up too. They won't just gouge the price of the 2500k and leave the 2500 alone, if one goes up they all will... so that price difference should remain about the same, maybe a few dollars more or less.

Last time I drove to Micro Center, it took me 3 hrs in LA traffic. I'm never doing that again. Btw, prices (and instant rebate) is already up on MC website.

As for price bumps across the board, I don't think so. K processors are kind of like premium products and I expect demand for those will be greater than non-K versions. Newegg's software automatically adjusts prices based on demand.

Yeah it is kind of a long drive for me as well, but for me to go out there for something just means that their marketing strategy is working, because I usually end up buying more than what I went there for.
