Intel Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2GHz LGA, Retail package with fan/HS
Plus
Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H, mATX motherboard with HDMI and DVI outputs and 4x DDR3 slots (many mATX MBs only have 2).
for $144.98 - $60 Combo discount = $84.98 - $10 MIR†= $74.98 (Shoprunner free shipping)

Not the latest 1150 MB chipset, or one best for overclocking, but getting both for close to the price for the CPU alone makes for a great value.† Free shipping with Shoprunner.

UPDATE:† G3258 + Gigabyte B85 combo is sold out....

They have yet another combo up, for anyone looking for more of a mainstream gaming system.

Intel Core i5-4690K
Plus
ASRock Fatal1ty Z97 Killer LGA 1150 ATX MB
$374.98 - $80 combo discount = $294.98

Thumbs way up for this. The motherboard isn't great, but you could sell it on eBay for 40ish, and pick up a heck of a processor (when overclocked) for 35 bucks or so.

Most reviews I've read for this processor got 4.5+ the overclock, and at that speed, in many games it gives even i5 processors a run for their money.

Use this as the base for a super budget gaming rig, and you're going to be able to play most 1080p games out there on high settings for < 400 bucks

sold out. was there for a while, but not much response here on FW.

Main combo is Out of stock, but some of the other non-Z non-overclocking board(!) combos are still available.
The Z97 overclockers board got most of the attention, but these are still great deals.

BIOS update might be needed for some of then to work with the latest chips.

been watching these oombo deals for some time, but very leery of their disclaimer:

They're just covering their asses.† You really don't have anything to worry about.... except for the odd occasion when you need to update motherboard BIOS to recognize a newer CPU.... which might be a pain without a working CPU to use for the update first.

††Thanks, I like the gaming combo with the full size board better anyways !!!

Not a 100% sure on this main deal board but keep in mind many B85 and H87 boards can overclock K-CPU's. It was loophole in the bioses that Intel has since fixed with the 9 series chipsets. Currently running a 4770k at 4.3ghz on a cheap ECS H87 board FWIW.

††I think†a video card would contribute far more to success with†the high settings...
