Comfirmed Frys price match by nikets01


*7:41AM EST EDIT*
Added the following Motherboard to cart and was able to get $50 off Combo!:
ASUS P8Z68-V LX LGA 1155 Z68 ATX Intel Motherboard (SKU: 812289) Comes out to $69.99+tax http://www.microcenter.com/single...id=0371775
Intel Core i7 2600k (SKU: 200154) $199.99+tax http://www.microcenter.com/single...id=0354587

Total: $269.98+tax

Here's the other Motherboard:
Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Z68 (SKU: 525667) for $109.99 + tax [microcenter.com]

Well, if you look at Page 3 of their ads, on the left upper corner it lists 2 motherboards that will bundle with the i7 2600K, and I guess those are the only two so far.

OOS:

Santa Clara, CA
Tustin, CA
Fairfax, VA
Rockville, MD
Houston, TX
Paterson, NJ (Even though website shows 5 in stock)

nirvanaguy - just called the Cambridge facility and they are NOT sold out. the guy said they have a ton of i7 2600ks left but they just dont show up on the site
ruffilb - Just picked up one in Cambridge plus the Asus mobo. They have plenty left (Saturday ~3pm).

FYI: I was able to price match with Best Buy and they shipped it free! ~atari
FYI: 9 p.m. EST Best Buy price match is a cake walk AND allows purchase of MULTIPLES. Rep knew exactly what I was calling about as soon as I said the product- asked me if I wanted to PM it to Microcenter...said he'd already "sold 4" and it was only the first half hour of his shift.
FYI: 4/23 21:00. Successful PM to BestBuy.

FYI: Called store and confirmed 30-day price guarantee at Tustin, CA. If you bought this in the last 30 days, take your receipt back in for a refund of the difference. ~odb

Fountain Valley Fry's refused to price match on grounds of OOS. -Tsumi

I am heading over to MC tomorrow to pick up an i-3+mobo. If anybody wants the i5 or the i7 I can grab one along the way for $20 fee+shipping to cover some of my costs. Will be heading over to the Paterson NJ location with 3.5% sales tax. Please PM me if you want one.
I don't think you are allowed to do that here. Regardless, either do it for free or keep quiet.
If I make the trip to MC which is 40% likely, I'll do it for free.

Furthermore, you might end up having everything stolen in Paterson.

Which is a better overclocker, i7 2600k or i5 2500k?
there is no clear answer to that since it depends on each individual chip and what batch it came from...i have a 2500k i bought last year and have it overclocked to 4.3ghz without having ot bump up voltage or anything, others have not had that kind of luck with the exact same processor. the 2600k is clocked at 0.1ghz faster for it's base clock speed. both are unlocked and able to be overclocked and just depends on each individual

again, the hyperthreading is really the biggest difference between these chips and not much else

Here's the other I could confirm: http://www.microcenter.com/single...id=0364085

One caveat: the ASUS has PCIe 3.0, the GIGABYTE does not. If you want to overclock you'd probably be better served with the GIGABYTE, otherwise the ASUS will work.
Sorry, it's been a while since I built a desktop. What RAM and Graphic Card go with this motherboard?

Thanks man, the i7 seems to be an obvious choice if I can make it to MC.

For $200, I'd jump on this. Our only local computer store (CompUSA) still sells this thing for $319 Frown

I'd go with either this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6820231428 or get the Corsair Vengeance (MC has that). They are both true 1600 speed RAM since they run at 1.5 volts stock, as 1.65 volt is nothing more than overclocked 1333 RAM. Graphics depends on what you want to use the computer for. That Zotac SD, if still available, was a decent low end bang for buck. High end the best recent deal was that EVGA GTX 560 448 core at Amazon for $190, but that deal is dead. My recommendation is use the onboard video until another SD comes along, which could be any second since a new lineup of video cards is in the works and companies such as Amazon, Newegg, and TigerDirect will be clearing out old stock.

Very good deal! The new ivy bridge won't beat the price/performance of a 2600k @ $200. Smilie

Good deal, but with the newer 22nm chips (Ivy bridge) being released Apr 29, I think I shall wait....
