CPU Deal decision(i7)

I'm currently buying parts for a build that should be complete around the first week of January. Today I found two deals on CPU's:

SabrePC has the Core i7-3770K for 279.99 w/ free shipping
Amazon has the Core i7-2600K for 259.99 w/ free shipping

My question is should I hop on this, and if so which one, or should I wait to buy the CPU closer to the end of the build. Is there usually good sales at the beginning of the year?

    Those prices are pretty good. I would get the 3770K because it's only $20 more and it's newer tech.
  2. If you're going to be gaming then I don't know why you would get an i7? The performance of the i5 in gaming is so small that it's not even noticable.
  3. It's going to be an all around desktop/media pc/gaming pc. I posted about this on reddit and they said that SabrePC is shady, anyone know about that?

    EDIT: Nevermind, deals expired.
