That is a LOT OF CPU for 400 bucks. I'm glad that deal is out there. Even though I was too early for it.

Microcenter... how I wish I had one nearby.
I was in there yesterday to get a water cooler. Looking at the lines INSANE LINES I just put it on the shelf and said next time. I even did the pickup thing that promises to have the part in 18 minutes. They were so over booked that they couldn't keep up HOURS later. I decided to say eff it and skip it. I don't NEED it right now.

I have a 2700x. I'm waiting until gen 4 comes out later this year. Then I will cycle the parts between my system and get rid of the worst one (FX8320 is the low man on the pole in my house, not counting laptops)

Burticus are you going to keep your current motherboard or upgrade at that time as well? I think i've read rumore that the Gen 4 will be the last to use the AM4 socket. If so I might be tempted to upgrade from my 3900x to the last cpu for this socket.
