Get an Intel Core i7-8700K processor for $35 off today

The few sales that do happen usually only drop the price by a few dollars, which makes this deal a bit of an outlier. Right now you can get a Core i7-8700K CPU for $344.99 from Newegg's eBay store—that's $35 off the usual price.

Graphics, tilesets and audio design have all been overhauled, serving both an aesthetic and practical purpose. It looks quite a bit prettier, but the redesign has also been made with the updates to parkour in mind.
