Yeah. $229 at micro center if you're near one.

they use the cheap CPUs as a loss leader to get you in the door. a company using that strategy will never ship.

It does. I planned on getting a 3770k there when I went a few weeks ago.


I walked out with a new PSU, ASRock Z77 Extreme6 ($99 if you got a CPU with it), Samsung 840 SSD ($150 with a CPU purchase), and a bunch of other shite I didn't need. I had just built a new 3570k machine a month prior
