One of our favorite budget monitors has even more knocked off of its already low price.

That being said it's a smoking deal for this chip. Just upgraded from a 3700x which I sold for $100. Not a bad upgrade for under $100. Runs just as cool or cooler than the 3700x. Gave a nice little bump in fps and will keep me happy for a few years.
