    I didn't realize that had that feature. I've got a handful of alerts set.

    I do have several alerts setup. I do have a Micro Center near me but I usually forget to check their prices. Right now they're selling the Ryzen 7 3700X for $44 less than NewEgg. I still think the price should drop some more when more of the new CPUs actually become available. The first batch for sale disappeared immediately.

    Online prices seem to be around $305 for the Ryzen 3700x.. That price at Micro Center is really good at $279, I'd grab one --> https://www.microcenter.com/search/s...8&myStore=true

    I usually watch price history at PassMark ( https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php...+3700X&id=3485 ), or PCPartPicker ( https://pcpartpicker.com/product/QKJ...0-100000071box ), but they don't reflect local sales or smaller stores.

    Wow! NE just raised prices by a lot. The Corsair M2 I was watching just went from $189 to $269. The mobo went up $17. I'm going to take a trip to Micro Center soon. I need to commit soon. I thought the AMD cpu's would be going down by now. I was really expecting to see a 20% decrease in the cpu prices by the time I buy the other parts.

    For that CPU it would be a while for price to go lower in my humble opinion, it has great price/performance ratio as is. Other components vary in price, maybe there would be some deals around Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
