I was wondering if this is a good deal for $129, I'm currently planning on making a gaming pc. I need your opinions on this combo deal, if its worth the price or just rather look for individual parts. Ty

Regular Price $179.98 33% Price:$129.00 After Rebate:$119.00

for another $50 I found the Intel 4690 with Plus LGA1150 Motherboard. It was a total of $230 at Fry's store (in store only).

Excellent CPU and a a great MB. If you have a Fry's near its worth the trip.

yeah ive seen your post, the reason posted this too is because I'm trying to build a budget pc. The price seems pretty fair, but I just need some opinions on the experienced tech here :)

Good deal as long as you're not wanting to OC.

I went ahead and bought the FRY's deal.

So far I have to say its a killer board/CPU. For a budget gaming PC its def the best deal out there. Deal won't last for long.

Seems like a good deal and a good start for a budget build. You can start a build with those parts and then you can try other CPUs if you want to upgrade later.
