You can get the 1800x for $275 with staples price match. The 1800x is good to have if you don't plan to overclock and at $275 it is a good price.

It is better than the $379 8700k because it has more cores and doesn't suffer from the Meltdown security issue that has basically destroyed all security and safety in intel systems. This is at the kernel level and Intel currently has put out failed patches, and are currently working on a patch. Security experts and even Intel has come out and said that it is an architecture flaw that can only be defeated by new hardware. Every intel system is vulnerable and the only way to not be vulnerable is to completely change your hardware. So Ryzen is your best bet if you need a good system now, and this is a great deal on all ryzen chips.

Update: 1800X Back in stock as of 2/9/2018. 1700x and 1700 models appear to be back in stock as of 2/9/2018. All ryzen processors in stock at microcenter for price match as of 2/9/2018
How to get the 1800x for $275 from Staples.

Go to Staples chat during their business hours. Tell them you want to 110% price match this 1800x processor and give them these links when price matching:

https://www.staples.com/AMD-Ryzen..._IM14U1132

To Microcenter's price of $299 here:

http://www.microcenter.com/produc..._Processor

That math is simple, staples will also deduct 10% of the difference in price:

544.49 - 299.99 = $245 difference X.10 = 24.50 = 299-24.50 = about $275 plus tax if your state charges it. Staples was offering free next day ship when I had ordered.
---------------------------------------------------

Updated for 1700 and 1700x models you can price match to microcenter...

============Ryzen 1700x deal for $254 before tax============================================

Ryzen 1700x @ staples here for 427: https://www.staples.com/AMD-Ryzen..._IM14U1131

Ryzen 1700x @ Microcener for 270: http://www.microcenter.com/produc..._Processor

Total price before tax after Staples 110% price match: 427-270 = $157 x .10 = $270 - 15.70 = $254.30

===========Ryzen 1700 for $217 before tax============================================

Ryzen 1700 @ Staples here for $354: https://www.staples.com/AMD-Ryzen..._IM14U1130

Ryzen 1700 @ Microcenter for $230: http://www.microcenter.com/produc...ire_Cooler

Total price before tax after Staples 110% price match: $354 - $230 x.10 = $12.40 therefore 230-12.40 = $217.60

I am sorry we cannot price match this item. For two reasons, it is an in store special only and it is sold out currently.

Lol just shows people dont understand computers. You must think the 7930X is better than a 8700k for gaming, but you would be wrong.
He never said just for gaming.... Though with the the meltdown issue plaguing Intel it very well could be

You must be one of those people that tries to pretend they actually know something

Great price if you can replicate. Paid $300 around BF. Nice to see it back down to that.

LOL, guess the joke is on me because Staples NEVER price matches squat for me. I applaud you if you have the patience to get them to honor their own price match policy.

do you price match with Microcenter.com?
6:42 pm
Verneda D.
I can take a look to see if it meets the guidelines to price match. One moment.
6:42 pm
Verneda D.
Thank you for holding.

At this time, the processor cannot be price matched with MicroCenter, as the item is an in-store only special. It has to be available online as well as in store. Specials and deals cannot be honored.
6:45 pm

Try 2nd time. No luck Frown
