Unless this is a mistake, but a Ryzen 5 1600 for $99.99 no strings attached:

Is there anything out there that beats this for price/performance with respect to gaming?

Why should anyone pay nearly double for 7% gain (OC-ed) for a 2600x:

or nearly triple for the 2700x:

When it won't improve gaming by even 10%
