i have a fx6100 thats only a year and a half old and i want to switch over to intel since my credit has cleared up after divorce and bankruptcy. i was thinkin about pickin up a 2700k since there all the way down to 220.00 but the 3770k is down to 229.00. im into overclocking so i figured the 2700k was better heat wise. the 3820 is down to 229.00 to but the boards are so much more pricey and i here there touchy when it comes to overclocking. i'll prolly keep my fx6100 for another year but thought since prices are down i'd grab somethin before you cant find them anymore. are there new intel 1155 chips coming out soon that may be more heat friendly or 2011 that are more overclock friendly that i might be able to find cheaper this time next year? or should i grab something now? im only thinkin of grabbin a processor right now. then the motherboard later on. just wonderin if the 2600k or 2700k is gonna be hard to find without payin more. microcenter is so much cheaper than everyplace else but once things start to get older they dont carry them anymore and your left with newegg or tigerdirect which are a fair amount more.
