Anywhere between 1 USD to 1.40-150 NZD.

But yeah that price would kill me, they had it on 'special' last week for $529.00 NZD which wasn't good imo. I was hoping for 3700x at 272 USD on amazon but thought about it the other day and wasn't really sure if that was actually a good deal in general since I am always working with NZD anything less than the jacked up prices here seem good.

Yeah got unlucky and ended up missing out. Would the 230USD price tag be considered a good deal on a 2700x or did I get scammed?

I don't think that's great on a 2700x, I paid around that I think for a 3600 a few weeks ago. Well, 2 of them, but I had to order them on separate accounts because they were on sale. $240 ea, I think.

Actually, that's probably not a great price but not bad. Prices are just high right now because of COVID related supply and demand issues.

Yeah here in NZ the price for a 3600 non x or xt is about $350ish NZD, didn't go for that since I saw a review the streaming ability isn't as good with a higher bit rate so after the extra 2 cores otherwise the 3600 is about $50 or so cheaper in NZD $$

Yeah I was holding out hoping that prices might drop but I am maxing CPU use out with emulation and its laggy so wanted to get something now. I know for a fact I will regret the purchase over the coming months. I always seem to have bad luck with money related things lol. Save a dollar and loose alot more is how it normally goes. What would you consider a good deal on a 2700x in USD?

If thats the case then I will just be happy with what I paid then, I was looking at camelcamelcamel at the lowest prices ever for both the 2700x and 3700x on amazon. I was trying to hold out but CPU is maxing out at 100% when emulating.

Yeah my buddy just paid $800 for a built system from CL with a 1070Ti FTW, 9600k, Asus Prime Z-370P, 16GB of 3200CL16, crappy PSU and cooler. Have to say it seemedi like a good deal to me. 6 months ago it would have been a joke.

Yeah I have been on the lookout for sometime then on the fence about it.

The 3700x would have been ideal but I am now thinking about it and if I really needed the power of the 3700x which I don't think I would. The 2700x looks like it will fit my needs for gaming/streaming. Not to mention the price difference in NZD.

I paid about $400 NZD for the 2700x from amazon and if I got lucky with the 3700x on sale it would be about $470.00 NZD. For me that $70 more is alot. In USD its nothing, I am not lucky enough to be paid in USD or be living in the right country lol.
