Do you live near a micro center? Because if you do, they are currently selling the 2500k for about 179 last time I checked and you can pick up a nice $50 dollar saving off of any of their mobos when you buy them together. Total would be less than $300. I found out about micro center after I had built my computer. Sadface.
Wait i live right next to microcenter you said 50$ off when you buy them together? Dang
