Hopefully, this will stretch the existing video card I have.
Here is my shopping list so far:
Vengeance Series 8GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 4GB Memory Modules)
$40

Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz LGA 1155 Boxed Processor
$100
There is another possibly important difference with a Z77 (7 series Actually)

TRIM will only work in RAID configurations with a 7 series board or later. May not matter to most but be advised.

I bought mine a year ago at $150, which was a screaming deal at the time.

This is HOT!!!

Out of Stock at Northeast Ohio/Mayfield Heights Micro Center

I'm not totally disappointed since I grabbed a 3570K last month from MC for $189. Still, this is one of the hottest deals I've seen in a while.

Well.. not really comparison. 2500K will just dominate all the area, just a matter of how much it dominates.

I have used 2700K (Essentially 2500K with HT and +0.2GHz) Phenom II X4 960T@X6, FX 8120 and FX 8320 past two months. Stock 2700K with HT off was on top in all area I tested including multitasking (w/ virtualization) and encoding, with the exception of FX 8320, which was a slight above than that. Forget about gaming, stock 2500K will just crush anything AMD has to offer, probably exception of OC'd FX 63x0/83x0.

And then now, you can OC 2500K pretty well. 4.5GHz is somewhat easily reachable. At there, it mostly likely will crush anything AMD has offered in its history, OC'd or not.

how much of an an improvement would this be over an i7-960? I'd probably pair it up with that asrock + ram deal.

I forgot what the oc on my i7 is.

Ha no doubt. I check my Microcenter according to the website at around 11..said 10+. Out of Stock now.

Was gonna hit it up after work and offer it to the people asking in the thread. Glad I checked again as it would have made the Friday traffic that much worse for me.

I saw a post on slickdeals and it appeared that they had more in-store than is displayed online. I could be wrong. Might not be a bad idea to call ahead just to check. Did you get a free $15 coupon from them for their grand opening? If not I can forward you one if you pm me your email.

edit: nm, looks like another guy from towson posted that they're out of stock. he called.

I'm actually sort of glad I don't have a microcenter around since I may well have bought this even though I really don't need it at all.

With a good OC, I bet you could net 15-20% in gaming. You would lose HT, though.
