I took the plunge.

That's right. Black Friday deal. It's 3 AM here and I'm about to go to bed.

I used up the last of my wiggle room of that 32% of max limit I put on using credit. Dun' got m'self somethin'. It was a real fight in my head...I was actually really pulling for AMD FX-8350 despite it not having integrated graphics (was going to get the mobo, graphics and chip), and it actually was decently competitive with the i5 2500K on benchmarks.

Well, well, well. Wouldn't ya know I was just about to make the decision...then decide to check TigerDirect *one* last time and come to find...Core i5 3570K (just a scoche better than 2500K) has suddenly dropped from $220 to $180!!! "...and I J***'d in my PANTS!"

Nothing changes your mind like a sudden price drop.




So it's official. Construction on my new machine has now begun!

Obtained:
-Intel Core i5 3570K
-MSI Z77A-GD65 motherboard

Stay tuned.


We'll murder them all, amid laughter and merriment...except for the few we take home to experiment!
