Hey guys,

Microcenter currently has the i7-950 for $199 in store only. Unfortunately I don't live anywhere close to one. I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to purchase one and ship it to me. I'll cover all costs and throw like $20 your way for helping out.

Thanks,
mrw1986

My heatware can be found in my sig.

Haha agreed, speaking of I just ordered the Cooler Master HAF 932 Black Edition from there :) I also just ordered 2x Samsung F3 1TB SATA 7200rpm drives. Finally upgrading my PC (mine is a bit outdated...). Trying to get this CPU, Asus Sabertooth X58, G.Skill PI 3x2gb DDR3-1600 CL6. I'm also updating my watercooling with an XSPC RX360 and the XSPC Rasa.

Edit: Forgot to mention I'm going to be ordering a 6870 (probably the MSI Twin Frozr II edition) and I will most likely eventually Crossfire 2 of them). Another option is the 6890...I'll have to see the performance and price point first.

well it's 199 + tax (8.25% here) since it's a local store and everyone gotta pay tax.

FYI I live near the Cambridge, MA Microcenter and also pass by the NJ one whenever I head home on holidays... the NJ one is 3.5% sales tax (UEZ, basically redevelopment so 1/2 tax), the MA is 6.25% sales tax
