I just want to know where you're getting that so cheap. The i5-750 itself is usually $200, while the X4 635 is usually $120... damithagg March 19, 2010 5:17:27 PM The Fry's deal just started today. I may not make it. I just called they had 30 at the Dallas store and now they have 8 and I have 2 more hours till I can get away from work ARGHHHH!!!! lol Related resources $500 budget upgrade - i5 750 , i7 860, or Phenom II x4 - Forum [NewBuild] ~$ 750 PC AMD x4 955 and some questions - Forum URGENT: i3 540 vs. Athlon II X4 635 - Forum Athlon II x4 635 + Asus M4A89GTD - Forum Phenom ii x4 945 vs Athlon ii x4 635 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
