    Yikes, I thought the 3570K was going to be cheaper. $249? What happened to the $212 number I saw before?

    Not far off from the 3770 at that point.

    Yeah that is what I was expecting to see in the prices.

    Would love to see a 2500K for $150-$175.

    Amazon has it listed too but they want $266 atm.

    Quick bump. Not anymore. It's up $40.

    Newegg usually has their prices higher at launch since they know that it's going to sell out either way. Sell out at $300 each or sell out at $400 each. Which would you do?

    no, MC rocks

    MC had the i7 920 at 230$ while the rest had it at 299$. Then they put it down to 199$ beating the competition by 100$

    Most likely a loss leader for MC, as most people will buy a board with it, and even with the 50$ off they probably even up, then a lot of ppl will buy RAM and a Case while they are at it etc etc

    but newegg is still great

    The correct color scheme is...blue/gold, not blue/orange.

    I was a little shocked when I went to pick up a 3570 and they we're $250...Ouch. I'll hunt around and see if I can find one cheaper. I was looking to use it in a small rig without a video card and the HD 4000 would be ideal in this case. If the prices don't come down...I'll wait for Trinity.

    Tell me though, is IVB really worth it? Yeah, there is a boost in performance but the price point is getting that close to entering the SB-E market.

    Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turb... = 350 USD
    ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6... = 240 USD
    590 USD for IVB i7 + Asus mobo

    Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz (3.8GHz T... = 310 USD
    ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s ... = 320 USD
    630 USD for SB-E i7 + Asus mobo

    That's not a bad difference in price though. SB-E gives more options for upgrading, gives you quad channel memory, 40 PCI-E lanes, as well as everything X79 has to offer. So all in all, I would still have gotten my i7 3820 even if I upgraded my rig when IVB was released. Plus, IVB-E is going to be released for X79 so a BIOS update is all you will need if you wanted to upgrade to 22nm when it gets released for LGA2011.
