Intel's processors don't go on sale very often, and when they do, the discount is usually minuscule. However, today's sale on the Intel Core i7-8700 isn't bad at all. Right now you can grab one of Intel's best consumer processors for $269.99 from Newegg's eBay Store—a $40 discount from the original MSRP.

The Core i7-8700 is a 65W CPU, with 6 cores, 12 threads, 12MB of cache, and a max turbo frequency of 4.6GHz. It supports up to 64GB of DDR4 memory and 16 PCI Express lanes. It's a great option for a high-end gaming PC (opens in new tab), though it can't be overclocked. The unlocked version, which is pricier, was our last-gen pick for the best CPU for gaming (opens in new tab). If you don't care about overclocking, this is a good way to save about $100 off the price of an unlocked i7.
