his current one for the new one as you're saying. You're making it sound like he can just send in his 3350P for the 3470S you linked to, and just pay the $18. That's not the case according to their policy - he would have to buy the 3470S for the full price, and then try to sell the 3350P third-party, where he won't get the full value back.
:/ ataripirate if you would like to in the future return that cpu under neweggs warrenty service.
If they will allow you to, return it for incompatible hardware with original packaging it came with.
Tell them what cpu you want, you should be able to get another one even if it is 5 or 10 dollars more of the item you bought.
Speak with neweggs customer serivce rep online and follow the instructions they give you to use at checkout.
Been doing this for nearly 8 years and never had a problem like that.
Not unless I damaged it and they can prove that I or any others damaged any rma parts.
Thank you carnage for expressing your concerns and the links.
