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

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.
