Should I Go For it?
i was looking at a microcenter ad that starts this monday, and on the "Pre - Installed Bundles" section, i found something that caught my eye. The bundle was an Core 2 Duo E8400/XFX nForce 680i LT SLI motherboard for $209.99.
The problem is that its a "pre installed bundle" which i dont get what that means, and maybe have some hidden charges or something. But the E8400 costs $160, so wouldnt the board cost $50? which means the board is half price according to micro center.
Should i go with it?
i am also getting an Antec Basiq there as a PSU since they are selling them for $30.
EDIT - to anyone with 680i chipsets.
how hot do they run?
