Intel doesn't really drop their prices. Prior to the release of the i5-3570k the i5-2500k was selling for $225 on Newegg (excluding any sale). On the release of Ivy Bridge CPUs the i5-2500k has dropped to $220 where it remains today.

The i5-3570k normally sells for $230 on Newegg. After the release of Haswell it will probably drop to $225. Newegg currently has a $15 off promo code so you can buy it for $215.

You are unlikely to find it for a better unless you live near MicroCentre and wait until they have a sale on it. They sometimes sell the CPU at or below cost (like $185) to attract people into the store so that they will spend money on other things. It is an in-store sale only so if you can't get to a store then... too bad...

It means that Intel processors prices difference fluctuate about $15 to $25 throughout their life span and there will be no gain in waiting. Actuly I have been planning to build my pc with intel i5 3330 or 3450 for 3 months. Would you suggest me to buy intel i5 3330 or 3450 now? waiting for your expert opinion. Thanks for your help.

Since the Core i5-3570k @ 3.4GHz is currently selling for $215 at newegg after a $15 rebate (from Newegg, not Intel) it makes more sense to buy that CPU. The i5-3450 @ 3.1GHz sells for $200. The i5-3330 @ 3.0GHz sells for $190. Both prices are from Newegg.

For $15 more than the i5-3450 you can get a CPU that can be overclocked with a Z75/Z77 chipset motherboard. That can provide you with higher performance. However, if you are working with a very limited budget where and extra $15 for a CPU and possibly an extra few $ for a Z75/Z77 chipset motherboard vs. a H77 chipset motherboard. There are some Z75/Z77 chipset motherboards on sale / with rebates which makes just a little bit more expensive or even the same price as H77 chipset motherboards.

Yeah, Intel does cut prices, by $5 as I stated before. What the retailer charges is a different story though.

the 2500k prices are still just below the 3570k prices, they have maybe dropped £10 since the 3570k launch.

Over time the price of something will drop, then it may increase as it becomes harder to find.
