well is that an online place? if not then they sell for around 220 and you dont want to buy used parts because who know how much overvolting they did it could have like 2 months left in it
It's both. But you can only get the processors in store for that price. In a way, MC is taking a loss-leader very akin to Black Friday sales. They want foot traffic. Their processors and motherboards are below cost for a reason and they hope you overspend on their overpriced GPUs.
It's a brand new processor and gives them a competitve advantage in some ways.
