I see this offer on ebay for a 3960X for $478, its an engineering sample, is it worth considering over the 3930x for about $550?

is $70 worth giving up your warranty and possibly getting a buggy ES chip?

@popatim the 3960x sells for $1000+ bro... so $522 to give up warranty and a buggy chip is what lured me in and confused me :D
