Current pricing - $330 (3770K) vs $220 (FX-8350) = 33%
118/195 = 60 % more for the I7 3770K. They are both correct, but I think my percentage is the one someone who is deciding to purchase will look at. The 3770k is 60% more money with only an average 10-15% performance improvement. So I am not dense , perhaps some self-examination is in order on your part???
