Its worth the $10 more to get the 2600k so you can overclock.

He's getting his CPU from Microcenter so it might not be just 10 bucks.

$10, could also get you a 3770, though an overclocked 2600k will smoke it.

Would need a high end cooler to OC as much as the 3770. Stock for stock the 3770 is better by a margin.

Before you buy, don't forget to add a monitor and the OS into your budget as well.

Why not buy the PSU and CPU on Newegg as well? Just do one big order, maybe find a good combo deal? And for the Proc, you could always drop to the 2500k and OC it. Just a thought

Because the 2600k is 50 bucks cheaper at MC.
