Trusted seller antonline via eBay Daily Deals is offering the Intel i9-12900K 8-core Desktop Processor for $595 shipped. With a list price of $650, this processor goes for $632 at Amazon for the 12900KF, Best Buy charges $620 right now with today’s deal being just $5 above the all-time low that we’ve tracked for the KF model without integrated graphics. If you’re looking to build a high-end computer, the i9-12900K is a solid choice all around. It’s based on Intel’s latest LGA-1700 socket and works with Z690 motherboards, which support DDR5 and PCIe 5.0. With 30MB of L3 cache and 10nm manufacturing, you’ll also find eight efficient cores alongside eight high-performance cores available. Intel UHD Graphics 770 are also in tow, meaning you can get your system up and running without a graphics card if it’s been impossible to source one just yet.

My personal recommendation for mid-range computers is AMD’s Ryzen 5 5600G, if that’s more your speed. We recently went hands-on with this processor and found it to be fairly powerful without a graphics card, capable of playing select titles at over 100FPS. Right now, you can get AMD’s latest Ryzen 5 6-core processor for $240, making it a compelling option if you’re not ready to drop nearly $600 on the i9-12900KF.
Did you see Razer’s BlackWidow V3 is on sale for $180? That’s a $50 drop from its normal going rate and also marks one of the best prices that we’ve tracked. The built-in wireless connectivity available, you’ll find both convenience and capability here in Razer’s latest flagship gaming keyboard.
