Perhaps the 2500K will become more affordable after they release Ivy Bridge?
I think it's worth the investment, IF you can afford it. The 2500k is pretty much the best bang for your buck CPU on the market right now. And yes, when Ivy Bridge is released, the 2500k should drop in price.

I'm in a different situation with them, having a corporate account which allows cross-shipping and other benefits. I haven't experienced going through their basic support. Though I've had a very limited amount of problems with the quality anyway.
