Nice little drop. I just bought one a day ago for a new build from Amazon for $197.50 and it was $199 at Newegg.

So.. I'm missing the big deal? It's a 5% price drop.

You can get that by using the right credit card at the right store.

I mean, savings in savings, but it doesn't seem "slick". Or am I missing something?
Hey AlexM7509,

Some tax-free states do not collect taxes on Newegg; therefore. buyers from those states can save some money.

Cheers,
TL

But you can still use the same credit card and save 5% on the reduced price.

That doesn't really explain that much on the savings. You can do that at any time. It doesn't add to the deal? That's standard.
It's a new product that sells well and is a great deal at retail. Even a 5 percent drop is a good deal at this point.

:
The 2600s going for $133 are much better price/performance in the 6-core chips.

At the $190 price point I'd get a 2700 over the 3600 every single time.

This 3rd-gen is shiny, but will take at least another year or two for the prices to be remotely slick.
Isn't the 3600 strictly better for gaming than the 2700? You're missing on a bunch of cores but per core performance is better and you see that mattering for most games.

I'd consider last gen but really want current gen.

For primarily gaming, the 3600 is probably the better buy. The 2700 better for content creation when more cores benefit you.

3600 is better for anyone who doesn't plan to overclock.
2700 can close the gap through overclocking.
Userbenchmark comparison [userbenchmark.com]
You'll see that the 3600 is better than the 2700X here [userbenchmark.com].

If you don't mind overclocking and want to save money by going with a 2700, then do that if you feel the saved $$ is worth it. Just make sure you're not spending more on a cooling solution for the 2700 that you would not have needed for a stock 3600.

Personally, I'd go with the 3600 at the higher price and avoid overclocking. I'm getting lazy and don't want to deal with overclocking anymore.

I forget that computers are used for stuff other than gaming all the time.
Both userbenchmark things do show the workstation performance is better on the 2700 / 2700x.
If you're doing that stuff, 2700 is better.
