Solved CPU Deal decision(i7) Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Build 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?

I would get the 3770K because it's only $20 more and it's newer tech. | Report abuse Reply to dragonsamus lostgamer_03 CPUs Authority 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. | Report abuse Reply to lostgamer_03 deez86 November 29, 2012 5:41:10 AM 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. | Report abuse Reply to deez86 deez86 November 29, 2012 6:09:53 AM Best answer selected by deez86. | Report abuse Reply to deez86 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>CPU Deal decision(i7)> Related ressources: ForumIs this a good deal gaming pc ?
