Looks like Best Buy has the 180GB 520 SSD for $129.99.

There are far better motherboards at that price point with better features and overclockability. The 3770k is a raw deal, CPU+mobo is lukewarm, SSD is a non-deal. The only real saving grace is Thunderbolt, but you might as well get Gigabyte's UP5 which is well received and can OC like a monster.

Is the SSD worth it over the 240GB SanDisk that was on sale at Newegg? Obviously there is a lower cost per GB with the Sandisk but is the Intel worth the premium? The benchmarks don't seem to suggest so.

Yea I've been seeing that. Thanks for the support. I most likely will just get the 3770k

Looking at benchmarks and reviews, it doesn't seem like its worth it.

I actually regret not buying another 120GB Kingston SSD for $60, I only got one frown.gif

There is the 180 for 129.99. You obviously are not getting a great deal on the SSD here, but you are on the processor.
