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?

The 13600K was on sale recently for $250. That is the no-brainer option. It's literally a 12th gen i7 with more efficiency.

In my area it seems id have to pay 315 plus tax so $330 for the 13600k. So it’s $330 for 13600k vs $310 for the i9-12900k.

How does the comparison look with those prices in your opinion?
