Been waiting for this to go down in price for a while and it just dropped £34.50 so bit the bullet.
Not sure if I've made a mistake:
- Intel is releasing a new raft of processors right now, this will no doubt be made end of line (if not already) and might drop further. Still a bit of grace to cancel the order before Amazon figures out when they'll dispatch.
- 1150 socket with DDR3 RAM is probably considered old hat by those with the latest greatest super beefy system that cost them £2,000. I'm not sure if the performance advantage is worth the cost (and hassle) of a new motherboard and DDR4 RAM.
