Buyer BEWARE: TigerDirect going out of business. NO MORE RETURNS!!

All FX processors have unlocked multipliers and are soldered which makes overclocking easier.

Seems to be back in stock for $80.49.

Sounds like the making of the next circuit city which they acquired(site). Good way not to increase sells is to tell people they can't return a product.

Not much difference in overall performance between the i5 and the 8300. A little bit more between the 8300 and the 6300.

Bought 2, had to pay shipping about 5 bucks. 203.16 for 2, but got 5% back with shop discover.

edit: just to jump in the comparison....
the 8300 is better than the 6300, that extra 1/2 cores actually helps out in some games. Definitely worth it to get the 8300 at this price, since the 6300 is usually 100 dollars anyway.
It will get beaten by the i5, but depending on the game, the differences may be minor or even insignificant. If you are budget minded, this is an amazing processor, because the i5 is still double the cost of this, and it is not 100 dollars more in performance in any scenario. ^^

I hear you and do agree its a turn off but you do still get the manufacturer warranty so you're not totally out if there is a problem

Good deal btw
