Ask ! Get the answer taran95 May 15, 2011 1:52:00 AM yeah!! brentkhack May 15, 2011 2:23:37 PM Doesn't microcenter have 2500k for $180 after instant savings? In store purchase I must add. Might be worth $15. http://cart.microcenter.com/cart.aspx taran95 May 15, 2011 6:01:27 PM its around $200 after taxes. and i have no intention of overclocking because i have to buy an aftermarket cooler. total went to $700. brentkhack May 15, 2011 6:07:43 PM They also had the 2500k with 1tb hdd for $200 which is $5 cheaper than your current build. You can either keep as is our get an aftermarket cooler later. taran95 May 15, 2011 7:36:09 PM But then to get full advantage of an unlocked i had to buy a p67 board which is $30 more. So i finally decided to buy i5 2400. i5 2400 + 500gb = $200 + $90 (h67) = $290 i5 2500k + 1tb = $225 after taxes. + $120 p67 board = $345 (over my budget $55). brentkhack May 15, 2011 10:19:17 PM Either way, good build. patfactorx May 16, 2011 2:05:35 AM Nice and inexpensive.
