These are the Microcenter deals I was talking about. Get that Phenom II x4 for its regular price and then get your motherboard for free. It should be <1 hr drive from around the City of Industry area. Either the Phenom II x4 840 or Phenom II x4 965 with the Gigabyte AM3+ 760G board (no other board will properly or safely support a 125W processor) should do. You should still buy your RAM from Newegg, it is always cheaper there. Case it depends on what you find there vs. Newegg for what cost. There might be some good video card deals. Might also be a good GPU deal there.
