Microcenter always has good prices on CPUs. It's how they get people into the store. I say just wait until you are ready to build before buying the chip. I bought my 950 there for $220.

It's not art or a fine wine; CPUs prices go down with time.

I'll swing by mine on the 9th just to stare at something I'll probably never buy.
