Solved CPU Deal decision(i7) Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Build Product Last response: November 29, 2012 6:09 AM in CPUs Share deez86 November 29, 2012 2:20:10 AM 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? More about : cpu deal decision Best solution dragonsamus a b à CPUs November 29, 2012 4:07:12 AM Those prices are pretty good. I would get the 3770K because it's only $20 more and it's newer tech. Share lostgamer_03 a b à CPUs November 29, 2012 5:01:51 AM 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. m 0 l Related resources Laptop decision: Is i7 worth it? i5 dual core that bad?
