[Microcenter] Core i5 2500K + BIOSTAR TP67B+ Mobo Combo - $230 ar

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Good price after rebate ($20 mail-in rebate). Not a full-featured mobo but this is a pretty nice combo imo.

In store pickup and only lasts one day (June 1st).

Friend bought this board for $115 after a MIR. In this combo, the board is $50 after MIR with the $180 i5 2500k.

$50 for a entry level P67 mobo is pretty good.

I missed the Gigabyte deal, but I don't think I can pass it up again.

I was trying to wait out on Bulldozer, but with it delayed, rumors of "disappointing" performance, and the fact that I likely won't be able to afford it immediately (I never am at the bleeding edge, maybe one day...), its not worth it. I have been gaming more now that I am out of school, so the i5 seems like a better choice for me than the x6 I currently have.

I noticed an improvement in gaming performance @ stock and clock for clock (with the i5 2500k being capable of much greater clocks) when moving from a X6 1090T to my i5 2500k. This is a monster gaming CPU smile.gif

This is a beast deal. That biostar board is reportedly capable of oc'ing 2500k to 4.7ghz rock solid so I don't think it's "entry-level" wink.gif

Its entry level.

Single GPU. Dont even try to kid and mention its crossfire support. x16, x4. Really?

Great for people looking to run a single card though.

Not really, just so long as you aren't putting two super high end cards in there (such as 2x6990's, but who would buy this cheap for cards like that?). Look at this benchmark of 2x460's in 16x/16x and 4x/4x configuration. Almost no difference: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/08/25/gtx_480_sli_pcie_bandwidth_perf_x16x16_vs_x4x4/

Wow I thought it would be much bigger than that. I currently have that board and a 6870 and was thinking I would have to get a new mobo before I crossfired.

No kidding! Although I guess PCIe 1.1 was likely plenty for every card out there even after it was phased out, and PCIe 2.0 doubled that.
