Default Was this a good deal.

Upon my recent purchase of a p45 motherboard, i blew a capacitor and the usb ports stopped working. It has a lifetime guarantee, but upon my fathers passing i don't have the billing information, nor do i have proof of purchase.

Anyway, i have decided to a new Mobo,Ram, and CPU.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138181 Mobo

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144384 Ram

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103872 CPU

How'd i do with Price>Performance?

looks good to me

never tried the triple core processors, you'll have to keep us informed how it performs.

I have hopes of unlocking the 4th core, I have good intentions for my switch to AMD

It has ACC so you can have a chance although i still dont get peoples stupidity on the reviews
Pros: Has On off switch on Motherboard

Cons: This Motherboard Would not work with a few cases
it as well did not work with some Cpu & some Power supplies; it took me
6x the normal time to get this system up and running
and I bought 6 and still can't figure if they all work!

$60-80 is like what, 35-55?

maybe less, tbh if it works it was an awesome deal. lol

i envy your low-ass US prices.

we get seriously ripped off on just about everything it seems.
