Post by kurahk7 » Mon Feb 15, 2010 1:27 am

Hi guys, i just came across this http://www.frys.com/product/6039218?sit ... IN_RSLT_PG and I'm just wondering if Fry's would actually sell the processor for that price, newegg has it for $99

If it's listed and you buy it at that price then why wouldn't they? :P ...I would've though it was without the fan..but it says it's the boxed one. There are times(very few in fact) that Fry's has a better deal than newegg. I say go for it

well, i stopped using Fry's quite a while ago, they are lousy on returns and cant seem to keep defective merchandise off the shelf. I have gotten used HSU's and other items from them when shopping in the store. Once i returned one and told them its used and was used when i got it. they took it back cause i asked for the store manager when they started giving me crap. Tossed it on a shelf and while i was waiting for them to finalize the return someone loaded it on a cart and took it back to the sales floor. Thats my reason why, but like i said your choice.......

Fry's open box items and what not are horrible, I live down the street from one here in So Cal. Buy at your own risk, but I'd say shop @ Microcenter
