Default anyone ever deal with this website?

Micro Center - Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz LGA 1155 Processor 407627


The price is so cheap! Any clue why? I live an hour from Boston so I am considering buying this CPU in person vs the various online only stores.

"Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz LGA 1155 Processor

Compare! Newegg $249.99 | TigerDirect $249.99
Original Price: $249.99 You Save: $60.00

Our Price: $189.99"

I think this is the best CPU for my first gaming build. AMD has been tempting me with lower prices, but if I can get this one for $190, I think its an mazing deal. Loving some feedback please :)

That website looks totally legit, most scam webpages do not go into nearly such great detail. And they also give 3 forms of contact info. You should not be scared to buy from there, but give tham a call or chat. I don't see how you should be scared though.

Added: Oh i have heard of them...store is totally legit and known for great deals from time to time. I lived in NJ for many years where they have store now.

The store is very legit ,it just that you have to go in to the store to get them deals .They will not ship them to you for that price.I guess they think once you go in to the store and pick up a CPU at a damm good price you more then likely may buy something else from them.

shop there all the time. got my 2500K for $179 just a few months ago.

they have a combo deal as well where you can save $50 on select z68 or z77 mobos.

here's a link to their deals for may eB0512A PDFs

the gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H looks very appealing for $139 when purchased with cpu.

MC always has the cheapest CPU deals. They have them as a loss leader to drive ppl to the stores.

They always have intel CPU quite a bit cheaper than everyone else. If I was an hour drive away then I would go.
