Who wants 250 chips? PM me your email

EDIT: Sorry for the confusion, I was putting the email address as my invite when I enrolled so that the person would get 250 points. It's done now.

Laugh all you want, but for $315 we can get a 520 series 240Gb SSD with a 3770K. The single deals on these are outrageous prices though, I'm jealous....

nice deal, but I don't need this. Already have a 2600k I bought around launch date that runs at 4.3 ghz without a hiccup. Performance difference between sandy and ivy is negligible. Now if this was a 6 core I'd be jealous...

6 cores isn't all that helpful honestly. For a server I can see the point, but there are pretty much zero applications/games that you can run that will saturate more than 3-4 cores, and even that is pretty rare.

I'm an engineer and I can tell you multi-threaded programming is a serious pain in the ass, at least in the cases where you want to maximize CPU core usage. I would take 1-2 really fast cores in a heartbeat, unfortunately we may never see them due to this annoying thing called electromigration.

Also...bad title. Put 'YMMV' or Retail Only or something up there. It's a serious tease otherwise.

I agree wholeheartedly on the "multi-threaded programming is a serious pain the in ass."

The last multi-threaded program I wrote, I didn't shower for three days.

I agree most users will not notice the difference.

For folding it will get you a lot more points in a day to be able to run those larger work units faster. Smilie And of course encoding, ripping, and just the plain wow factor of having one. Although I love my 2600k. I expect it to be a viable gaming platform even 5 years from now, given that processor speed increases have slowed way down in recent years... AMD is not giving Intel enough competition to push things forward faster.

And with gaming you only have to worry about the hardware being as fast as the consoles that are out, and a 2600K system overclocked should be able to keep up with the next generation systems with perhaps a video card upgrade with no issue. 2600K has been a great a value for those who bought at launch as perhaps Q6600 system owners, maybe more-so. Great longevity in this chip.

With that said, this chip should have great longevity. For 100 bucks it's a no brainer. Build up an ivy bridge system now if you don't already have a sandy bridge system, you'll be good for years.
