I'm sitting here, wanting to build a new family room PC to replace my aging 2500K, and my HTPC hooked up to my projector with a 3570K, but can't justify spending the money. I went on ebay, to see what they fetch on there, and the average 2500K with motherboard and 8GB DDR3 is going for about $130. A similar 3570K combo, $170+. I'm in shock. I can pick up a brand new R5 2600 with a decent motherboard (with $30 discount from MC) and 16GB of DDR4 (Newegg) for $310 with tax. So, about $120 after ebay fees and shipping per set, which means $190 to get a brand new 6 core / 12 thread monster with twice the RAM. Yeah, not too shabby. Just a public service announcement if you were oblivious, like me, to how much these old dogs sell for.
