Yes, the 4770k is a good 10% overall better than the 3770k at the minimum.

Well, go with whatever bundle deal they might have with a Z87 board. You can typically get good deals that way.

if you buy a Z87 board and a 4770K you get $40 off. not to mention their 4770K is usually 30% cheaper than on NewEgg.

i saved like $190 buying my motherboard and processor from microcenter as opposed to on newegg or Frys.


i love micro center

Yeah? What about a best buy or ANY other tech retail/reseller? I live about 30 minutes from the nearest one of those too.

They suck, things are marked up soooooo much. Back when I made my PC I had forgotten some sata cables and a mini hdmi.
sata cables were $20 in best buy and radioshack, and HDMI's were about $40 average(micro hdmi's). I also saw some ram for sale, it was $80, that was when ram was on average 35-45$ for 8 gb.

on amazon i got a mini hdmi for $6, and 3 sata 6 cables for 5$

Best Buy either direction is 30 minutes from me, Walmart is 20 minutes from me, Microcenter is an hour + from me, yea....

Microcenter realized their direct competition is Newegg so they started selling top end parts cheaper. Although, their selection of motherboards here in my area is rather lame.

I live in Claremont, the nearest MicroCenter from me is about 50 miles away in Torrance. Their selection of everything at that one is awesome, they have a TON of everything.

The only thing i hate about Microcenter is that no one that works there knows how to answer a phone.

Not to mention if you buy a mobo and cpu together at the same time you get a $40 discount. Plus, motherboards at micro center are usually $10 - $30 cheaper than anywhere online.
