You can get the CPU and Motherboard listed below for $289 (before tax). They have a deal were if you get $50 off when buying the CPU and mobo together. Plus their price for that CPU is $189 to start with. m 0 l cuecuemore August 29, 2012 7:28:00 PM Can you scavenge a DVD drive from somewhere, or borrow one just for an OS install? If so, you can shave that. You could go with this motherboard to shave a little more: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Then you might just go with stock HSF and grab a Hyper 212 EVO in a couple months and OC. m 0 l g-unit1111 August 29, 2012 8:16:03 PM cuecuemore said:Can you scavenge a DVD drive from somewhere, or borrow one just for an OS install?

Then you might just go with stock HSF and grab a Hyper 212 EVO in a couple months and OC. Or if you have no intention of overclocking you could drop the motherboard to an H77 and the CPU to the i5-3450 and you'll save about $120 that way (including dropping the fan). m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
