Default Am i goofy or what?

ok i am still learning about comp stuff but i bought this mobo and cpu combo for 406.00

http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...80717-2-240412

now just for kicks i was looking on newegg at the same processor and i saw it for this price.

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-498&depa=1

now im pretty sure thats the same processor i have right? so how could it be that price on newwegg? or am i missing somthing?

Newegg's CPU went up in price. I bought that exact same CPU at Newegg for $260 and now it's $350?!?! Yikes, talk about a price hike.

They're all 939. Same core and socket from both retailers.

oh crap, didn't see that. Mine is the Newcastle core. No wonder the price is soooo darn high! I was shocked for a moment.

But the original post by Crayzboost are both using Winchester core and so is that link to Newegg.

Thought so. The Newcastle core is cheaper becuase its older and it uses a worse process than the Winchester, but it's still a good CPU.
