Crazy, ab-so-lutely crazy. I can not even get a ball park date on shipment/delivery/restocking. 2 weeks later and I still have $960.00 worth of stuff in their bags and I still need to grab a case and OS. When I spoke with customer service they granted me another 15 days for the MB and processor, that was nice. I decided to remove my store location on the website and went to the online web store and "Low and Behold" everything is on the web store I'm waiting on? The 500gb 970 (none plus ) NVMe ssd drive I got is the same $89.99, but the plus version is $99.99 from $92.99 it was. They also list the MB's I was interested in getting. I don't get it, I'm extremely frustrated and that should not be a part of buying. And get this, I noticed on my receipt that I did not receive any discount for compatible bundle and mentioned it to customer service and they explained it was because the MB I got was an open box item and not eligible, "after knowing the intention of its purpose" (to exchange for one of the MB's I'm waiting on to be restocked) I don't know how it turned in to such a fluster cuck, I was planing on spending $800 tops, and was about to happily finish around $1,300. Right now, I plan on returning everything tomorrow. I guess planing on a tax free weekend purchase is a not such a good idea. TSTonyV, thank you for helping me spec it out, it is appreciated.

This is an excerpt of a recent post from the plugin designer "- incredibly, i9 systems offer little advantage in terms of performance over i7, with the same number of cores. In some cases we even noticed that some i7s had better performance, although in our offices i9 desktops are all based on liquid cooling.- i5 performance is lower than i7, but only slightly (always with the same number of cores). The point is that all are usually based on similar clock frequencies, and offer the same optimizations: AVX2 seems to be supported almost everywhere, and they tend to perform half as fast as the old SSE2 optimization and twice as fast as no vector registers."My budget is ( I probably shouldn't be doing this ) : ) but 7 to 800.
