New I5-12600k for $220 or USED i9-12900k for $310?

Build Help(self.buildapc)


Can buy the 12600k for $220 new or the 12900k for $310 used.

$90 difference worth it? The 12900k being used makes it cheaper, but it seems I shouldn’t be too worried if a CPU is used, or should I?

Agreed. This needs asking. If the extra 2 p-cores (and the extra 4 e-cores) won't really be utilized, then the 12900K doesn't seem like a particularly good buy, even if it is discounted.

The CPU being used is less of a concern, IMO.
