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

Is it worth it to return my i52500k ($179) and bite on this for extra 20 buck ? Hyperthreading essentially worths $20 extra ... I dont do crazy video editing. Building the comp solely for diable 3. Any input ?

save the trouble, I dont think it makes any difference of Diablo 3

Yes. I would return and pay the extra $20 difference. I know you say that you are only using it for Diablo 3, but you don't know what you are going to need a year or two from now.

honestly performancewise, the difference between the two chips are absolutely negligible, and though not really proven, its said that i5 in general OC's better. I currently run i5 OC'd and almost always beat everyone in my game loading speeds

For 20 bucks, yes. But realistically, you'll never notice the difference. Most benchmarks place the i7 faster only in video compression and transcoding. It's a pretty specific benchmark that a lot of people don't care about or need.

i5 2500k overclocks easily over 4ghz, even on a stock intel cooler. And in most other tests, like gaming, it matches or beats an i7 (overclocked, which you WILL do with a 2500k ;P)
