    I'm on the UK edition and all the offers are USA and some (e.g. AMD 5600X) are out of stock at Newegg UK.

    Please sort out your localisation issues.

    Evidently everyday is prime day at Microcenter when it comes to cpu pricing. Looking at at 5800x as there is finally a decent price spread from the 5900x. It’s now 379.99 vs 549.99.

    I love Microcenter. Used to live a few miles away from one in Dallas. Unfortunately , I now live in Arkansas and the closest Microcenter is a 4+ hour drive away...in Dallas. So if you want one of their deals on a motherboard, CPU. Memory, graphics card (basically anything electronic), they do not ship, it has to be picked up at a local store (bummer). However, I did get a great deal on an excellent computer case, which they did ship.

    I still waiting for the big 4 day event Black Friday-CyberMonday to snatch a 5600G or 5700G! They are moving up the price on some models to make it more appealing when the event takes place! The 5600G for example!

    I'm amazed 5600X did not drop further in price in the US... I bought mine a week ago at 240 euro (with VAT) from a BF deal in EU.
