    Alright now I am getting sightly annoyed at these prices having purchased a 2700 a month ago. Only slightly however I did not need a 2700X over my 2700 for the task but the Wraith Prism maybe.. Although the 2700 does not seem to get that hot at stock (even 24/7 compiling on all 16 threads).

    This is making it real hard to keep thinking I am just fine and happy with my 1800x.

    Too bad the seller didn't have it at this price last week for the 20% off coupon (It was at $350 from that seller)...

    Fairly sure these are gray market CPUs being pushed into the USA. That price will not last and has nothing to do with AMD's NA partners.

    I am in the same boat. There is only 1 "approved vendor" for me (well without some explaining).

    FYI sales tax for California. Just paid $280 shipped a few days ago which is a good bit cheaper than this for me.

    There was a guy selling them for $300 + $8 shipping locally on ebay. Low feedback but he sold 12 or so and received positive feedback for them. If you're in CA, worth checking for other ebay deals.

    Tech deals go fast on ebay. Most experienced sellers raise their price when a promo comes along. You can certainly get lucky though. Still often ends up being a better deal than Amazon/newegg in any case.

    And if you get ebay bucks it is a nice bonus. I think I have about $50 to spend next month. Not sure what I will get with it.

    Well the seller is self-described as Refurb 4 Less.

    Marginal, I'd agree. But... in my experience (20+ years as an eBay seller) at least 1.5% of customers are idiots or trouble, often wanting something for nothing. Buying an item and then complaining, wanting a refund... and to keep the item :/
    Selling used (refurb) tech I would suppose would double those sorts of odds.
    Conversely, it looks like they sell on large volumes... makes it easier to screw up transactions and resolve problems slowly too.

    I never had a problem with anything I bought from them.

    On a boxed new product, I don't think I would worry.

    $299 at Microcenter plus you get the $30 motherboard bundle discount. OTOH, sales tax... so flip a coin. If you already have AM4 mobo and just want the chip, $289 shipped seems like a good deal to me.

    And don't be afraid to upgrade your 1700's and 1800's, there are people right here on Hardforums that will gladly buy your "old" chips if the price is right. I know...because I bought a 1700 here from an upgrader!

    Not everyone is near a MC, plus maybe no tax? MC is 6% so you're looking at an extra $18 + motherboard.

    My county sales tax is 8% and I have my 1700x sold locally for $180 as I type this so I'm pretty tempted, between price difference, tax and cost of trip about a $41 savings vs Microcenter. So is $41 savings worth same day pickup vs waiting until Jun 21-28th.... hmm?
