I have the K version which is basically the version of that processor designed to be over clocked and it costs more than double what that computer costs.

I just tried to buy two of them, and it's now showing as out of stock.

Damn, that was a hell of a deal.

For me it shows as in stock but it wont let me add it to my cart. Just call walmart, if they CS doesnt suck they will honor the price. I know amazon and newegg would.

I saw it and should have tried to buy it at first instead of running around wagging my dick all over. but a lot of people had orders cancelled.

seriously i hate buying things. you have no idea how long it takes me to buy even a $20 pair of headphones let alone a computer rig.

Buying a $20 pair of head phones is easy. They're too expensive to be that set that you dont care about and too cheap to actually be good so you dont buy them.

i actually bought $20 headphones the other day. I like it cause the cord is covered in a woven material for extra chair-rollover protection. I had to return 2 i tried before them because i didnt like how they felt. But the only thing I dont like is that they had a huge band across them (they are the soft foamy ones that look like ear muffs) and it messes up my beautiful hair.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

thoughts on this combo? I realize it's an AMD chip, but it'll end up around $420 shipped after rebates. Seems like a fairly decent MB, only thing that bothers me is that is doesn't have a port to put the USB 3.0 on the front of the case.

Everything else I'm looking at packages the i5-3330, so here's a comparison of the two chips: Intel Core i5 3330 vs AMD FX 8320

isn't there usually a port on the MB itself so you can wire the front of the case? I see it has two for the usb 2.0 for the case, but nothing but the two rear 3.0 ports. Doesn't really matter, the only two things I use to transfer data with my usb is my camera and ipod.

Oh. I guess you're right. I didn't go to the details because i figured if the rear ports were 3.0 the expansion slots would also be 3.0.

I got a flash card reader to fit on my front panel and it's way faster than USB. That was my solution. Plus less wires.

Wait, what? You're looking at AMD CPUs and cheap-*** Motherboards?

Brain, stop. Just stop. Buy an Intel CPU and in Intel motherboard. Nothing else matters so much as having a good motherboard, chipset and processor. I'm not saying that AMD / Biostar sucks, only that Intel is better in every possible way. Better driver support, better documentation, more efficient, more robustly constructed, etc.

Pay the extra $50 and buy something nice.

Or don't and live life happily knowing that you saved $50 and will never be able to tell the difference in which CPU you bought.
