ASUS Z77-A LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard [newegg.com]

$104.99
- $10 instant code (MBMARCH10)
- $30 rebate [newegg.com] (purchase by 3/31)
= $65 plus free shipping (slow eggsaver or 2-day shoprunner)!

Update 1: code MBMARCH10 dead, but new code UPGRADEMB for 15% off (exp 4/7) and new rebate [newegg.com], exp 4/30 - $59.24 AR

Update 2: Price is up to 114.99, which means the price will be $67.74, only a few dollars higher from going front page, but not as sweet as the lowest at 59.24.

Plus tax, if appl.

This is a great pairing with the frontpage ATX case deal of $30 (thanks SwiftDW for that post), to start your own DIY barebone build.

A good value CPU choice is the Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P [newegg.com] for $179.99 - $10 (code: SPRGCLR147). This is a low power/TDP (ivy bridge), so better than the power hungry FX-8320, for those that saw a recent barebones kit with the AMD cpu and AM3+ mobo. Also, the 3350P is inexpensive for a quad-core i5 because it doesn't have the integrated HD graphics.

After that you just need RAM and a dedicated graphics card, and toss in a psu. Enjoy.

You mean for the Mobo and the CPU? Separate purchases then?

Gotcha, will remove that. Figured that was YMMV anyway, hence I left it out of the main price and put 'or lower". I'll just leave it to $65. Thanks much. Repped.

I want to get the best bang for the buck motherboard and processor, yet don't want it to draw too much power because I'm planning on leaving it on 24/7. Is this motherboard and the processor you suggested a good route towards that? I noticed the processor is rated at 69W, which is higher than the other i5 and i7s [newegg.com]. Haven't done much research into the latest generation of Intel chips (the i-cores), but wondering if I should go with Haswell (and the new motherboard sockets)? I want i7, but if it just costs more, uses more power, and isn't really suitable for my purposes, then it doesn't really make sense.

I don't really plan on doing any gaming. Just need it for development, such as running Visual Studio and some work with local SQL Server instances. Also planning on running 3-4 monitors with it.

My current desktop setup:
- Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 @ 2.7GHz (stock)
- Gigabyte EP45-UD3R board
- 4GB DDR2 RAM (my biggest bottleneck I think)
- Radeon HD 5770
- 160GB SSD & 2TB HD
- Antec 900 Case
- Three 23" LED monitors

good timing on this - my motherboard is having some issues and I didn't want to have to do a full upgrade. I'll take my i5-2550k and everything else and pop it into this mb!!

you may be better off getting a refurbished dell i5 and you can upgrade the ram to 16gb pretty easily (if it comes with 8gb you just need to buy a 2X4gb sticks)

If I remember correctly Haswell does really well with power savings in their mobile processors. With desktop processors, idle power tends to be lower but load power usage is actually more than comparable Ivy Bridge processors since Haswell is slightly faster than Ivy. In short, Haswell is more power efficient than Ivy (power per watt) but since performance increases, so does power.

Correct. This MB is for the previous generation of CPU's. The i7-4770k requires an 1150 MB, not the 1155 listed here. Frown

seems like a expected price for an older Z77 motherboard. I don't see anything special here. In this price range you may consider the New AMD 8 core cpu and motherboard.. Its faster than the i5 and much cheaper.
