Is this a good option

Buying an i3 4130 and the gigabyte b85m d3h. i can buy it right now for 180$. Which is a great deal

Then later this year upgrade to an i5 or i may save up around 200$ and this may when im in minneapolis i can stop by microcenter and buy an i5 for cheaper.

ideas? I just cant afford an i5 right now though i really want to

  1. i may be able to budge in the i5 4440 if that is any good for gaming.
  2. yeah that would be great idea. upgrading to a haswell i5 later would be easy.
    regarding mobo you can look at msi h87 - g43. costs similar to the one you mentioned.

    in my country they cost similar but here in newegg there is $23 diff. good to go with cheaper one if you are under tight budget.

    Yes i am. :(

    Im buying the i3 for 110. So i have 90$ to spend on a mobo. Any suggestions? 80$ on the mobo would be better. I cannot go over that one bit :(

    Good to buy if you intend to OC in future and get a "K" series CPU.
  7. Hm, screw it. I get paid tomorrow. And if i sell my CPU+MOBO i should be able to afford a decent priced i5 and a budget mobo
  8. Ok well i went with the i3 4130 and that motherboard in my 1st post. ;)
