If I was personally buying one I'd probably pay like $140 for one.

You'd have to bundle a motherboard with it for it to actually sell because I believe they do not sell anymore Z77/Z67 motherboards anymore (obviously not in production)

I bought mine for the equivalent of $200. That was a year ago, though.

 

Certainly worth it compared to, say, an i5. in IPC mine still beats Skylake i5s hand over fist, especially overclocked, so I'm happy. And I got an Extreme9 Z77 for $75, so that kind of makes up for any better deal that people could have gotten the chip for.

Oh yeah! My PC is having its birthday in a few days! Yay!

Source for your 2600k beating a skylake i5 in ipc? My Ivy Bridge i5 has higher IPC than your 2600k so I'm skeptical lol

Sold one about 2 years ago for $200 AUD, considered a great deal at the time.

I'd say $150-200AUD/$120-180USD

He obviously (IMO) means 2600K OC'd and Skylake @ stock.

Any Ivy bridge onwards than can also OC decently, will surpass it.

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz

Him comparing his i7 to an i5 made it seem otherwise. But if you're right then unless he has his 2600k at 4.9 (which wasn't even a stretch for sandy) then I still don't see it beating a stock 6600k.
