It was a really good deal (i3 3225 for $60), so I see why it was in high demand, but I had a limit to the amount of money I could use and ended up spending the extra money on a better GPU. Now I'm kind of screwed. I wish it was the GPU that was backordered, because at least then I could build my computer and get some use out of the intel 4000 HD graphics until then.
Does anyone have any experience with Tigerdirect's (or I guess any other online retailer) backordering? The website says that if the item I bought ends up backordered, I'll get an email about a refund or a replacement (which I have yet to receive). But at $60, any replacement I get will suck... I've been so excited to build my computer for the first time, and now I may have to wait forever to do so.
