Your friendly neighborhood reseller strikes again :-)

If you wanted a non-K instead, I could possibly hook you up and accept
your 2600K as trade (you pay the difference).  Of course there would
be some loss of value as it is used and I'd have to find a buyer, etc.

I think the K's are more expensive because they have the newer/better
on-chip video.

Again, I think Intel is going mental with their excessive SKU count
with tiny confusing variations.  One asks, what's the point?  They're
starting to look like a software company with SKU proliferation.
