Wow... Srsly, if you haven't jumped on the Ryzen Train, do so NOW! This is an incredible price, for the 1800X. Well worth it, if you value maximum performance (and don't want to wait for ThreadRipper, the 1800X-equivalent is going to be $549).

I saw this in my Microcenter email. It's absolutely amazing how cheap the current Ryzen flagship cpu is. And $30 off a motherboard is just icing on the cake!

I'd jump on this, but with GPU prices the way they are, there is no point. Will wait for a reasonable GPU deal to come along, then upgrade my i2500k to whatever is available then. Ryzen obviously won't be increasing in price all that much.

Wow, that's a very expensive mentality to have. One should buy the thing one is going to buy anyways when an unusually good deal on it presents itself.

I paid $499.99 for my 1800X preorder. It was worth every penny and then some. You'd be silly not to get this if you're in the market at the insanely good price of $350.

Not this year. Bought a new video card instead of a new mobo/cpu/ram. Next year I'll probably go with a hexacore Coffee Lake or maybe Ryzen, all going well.
My current system seems to be having a variety of problems this summer with various components, so it could be sooner depending on what is at fault.

I live in Austin, however, Austin doesn't show up on the stores list... hmm... does that mean it's sold out?

I searched on the web and cannot find an Austin, TX store. Are you sure there is one there?

That's because there isn't a store in Austin. Just one in Houston and Dallas.
