We were gonna order this within 12 hours, the only big concern is the i5-2500k is the HD 2000 graphics instead of 3000. Will there be any noticeable difference on the 2000??


Ejj


EDIT: Looks like the only thing is it is locked.. He's not a OC kind of guy, so I am not just making sure everything is compatible, but looks like it!!

The dumbest reason being what?

Also, Sapphire 6950 2GB on Amazon vs Sapphire 6950 2GB on Newegg, its a whooping $1 difference.

Have you ever noticed that when you buy electronics from Amazon, a lot of them ship in a Newegg box?

The on-board graphics means zilch when you have a dedicated video card anyway.

$259 after rebate. Sorry that's a pretty big difference.

+ you get the option to buy refurbed cards for "whooping" deals from the manufacture.
Um did you miss the $20 rebate from Newegg too?

Amazon has its uses, but your reason for newegg is just butkiss. Even the Egg does refurbs.

And rebates suck, stupid Amex cards.. Not worrth it.

Just compare both sites when you go to buy something. One may have something cheaper than the other and vice versa.
