$189.99 at MicroCenter.

They don't have everything. The selection of video cards there blows but for CPU, motherboards, RAM, hard drives and SSD drives and a lot of other items they can't be beat.

So they are great for 80% of your build.

No, the 8350 has been shown to be equal to the 3570k. The only reason the 3570k is more desirable is because its a great overclocker.

If he's not overclocking then 8350 all day.

He lives next to a microcenter, though, so everything changes. OP, I would grab a 3570k and then get an extreme4 for $50 off or whatever that deal is then put some more money in a better video card

They are equal for most. There are a few games that rely on the CPU more and the 3570k does outperform. I think if he doesn't want to overclock he should get that 3470 to save more money since it performs well too. 3470 at microcenter was about $30-$40 cheaper I believe.

I dont even know what overclocking is, so doubt I would do it. BTW what is an extreme4?

re: new build..help needed
With those prices I would go intel. Extreme 4 is good, it's what I have.

Are their diff models of extreme4's, if so which do you recommend. And does the extreme4 also work with the 3470 if i get that CPU?

You won't find anything good at microcenter concerning video cards and power supplies. They're going to be cheaper at newegg, amazon, etc
