because games use 6 core


get a decent quad core be it intel or AMD if you want to game, the only game that uses 6+ cores is crysis 2
I love Corsair

I wonder if Newegg would do a one time price match if you bought a 970 like last week. Lol.

They've done price matches for me but never for $300. Lol.

Shame the price of the i7 980x did not change.
980x will never dip lower than a grand.

They still sell the i7 975 for $1050.

$299 on the egg. Not sure if they will lower it more or not with the other price drops going on.

Those 570's would get bottlenecked in any cpu intensive game that doesn't take advantage of more than 3 cores.(which is a lot of games) Granted I agree that the 980/990 are a waste of money but a i5 2500k rapes the 1090t at the same price.
