I see no reason to buy a 7700K right now with 8600K production set to ramp up soon, you'll get two more physical cores and higher overclocks for less.

Damn, glad I jumped on this at $288, the price is bouncing like a basketball in a Harlem Globetrotters game today.

Exactly. Intel just gave consumers a big middle finger there. I'm not sure that an 8600k would necessarily be a better choice than a 7700k at the same clockspeed. Would be an interesting comparison especially at similar pricing. Probably significantly less if you factor in the cost of a motherboard as you can get a Z170 board for sub-$100 pretty easily.
