Second, you're comparing the price of a product that's been on the market for half a year to the price of a newly released product. It's a fair comparison at the moment, but we all know there's a markup around launch time. Third, going by MSRP, 8600k's direct competitor is 1600X, not the plain 1600.
I think if you give it a month or two, these will be priced pretty much the same, making choosing between them a toss up, unless you specifically need either multithreaded or single threaded performance. I just wished they'd be priced a tad lower.
Every Z370 Motherboard there is $200 or up!
