Not a big deal but it might be helpful to those looking for this particular Intel Skylake desktop processor.

Microcenter.com shows this processor selling for $140 but at checkout the price drops by $10. For comparison Newegg.com and Amazon are asking $147.

These Skylake prices frustrate me and why I went with an i3 4170 Haswell for $70 on sale. The performance gain [cpuboss.com] just isn't there to justify the price increase in my opinion.

That was a great price for an i3-4170 because as of right now they're costing $120 at amazon and newegg. Of course the Skylake i3-6100, a closer match to the i3-4170 in speed and L3 cache size, is selling at Microcenter for only $110.

It was on sale yesterday or day before at Frys for $75 I think with code.

How does the integrated GPU in the 6300 compare to the 4170 for HTPC playback?

I think the sky lakes are pretty awesome. Good built in GPU. I think the i3-6100 is best bang for the buck in the skylake line. They use DDR4 and will provide a great upgrade path to a i5 or i7 for so many years to come.

Skylake CPU's like this one can overclock with the right motherboard and little elbow grease, plus they give you a more current upgrade path
