It is a tough choice man. With the black friday deals going on now, if you have any combos that is part of the BF deals depending on how popular it is you might want to buy it before it sells out. Actually earlier I bought this phenom II x4 3.4 ghz and asus mobo with v8 cooler. I thought to myself, why am I buying this? I should save up for a killer i9 rig, and cancelled my order. It all depends on if you really need it and how good the deal is. If it is part of there black friday deal, then how much better can there cyber monday deals be? I don't know since I can't remember going on Newegg or any other site for the matter to check on CM deals. Not much of a helpful post, anyways, lol...hope you get the answer you're looking for.
