Deal Details

Last Edited by artcab May 13, 2016 at 01:29 PM
Nice combo deal on the AMD AM1 processor and Gigabyte mATX motherboard. The motherboard is $0.01 with the processor purchase, one of many combo deals Microcenter offers with AMD processors ($40 off compatible motherboard). I realize the combo deal has been around for some time, but this is the first time I've seen this Gigabyte board available.

The motherboard is very basic, but this combo could make a nice deal for someone looking to put together a low power HTPC (no discrete graphics card required if you're satisfied with the processor's video capability). No reviews on the motherboard at Microcenter as of this writing, but reviews can be found on Newegg, where it rates 4 out of 5 eggs, although not many reviews yet.

Here are links to the individual components - add both to cart to see motherboard discount.

It would be nice if stores like Micrometer, and Fry's would offer deals such as this to us that don't have access to their B&M locations. Nearest Micrometer & Fry's to me is Atlanta, and I'm in Nashville region, which is a four hour/250 mile, each way, drive.

The whole point of these deals is to get you into the store. They have a high conversion rate on "extras" once you come into a B&M location. Often people buy all the rest of their PC components right on the spot, even if those parts are not a great price.

Buyers are much more rational online.

Microsoft B&M Only, as noted in title. I also revised deal details to indicate that this is the first time the AM1 processor has been offered with a Gigabyte mATX board.

bought this combo and paired it with a antec ISK310-150 (from fry's for $38 AR), you can pick up corsair XMS ram for $15-20 (DDR3-1333 or 1600) after price matching to newegg and then doing the rebate. for under $100 it has opened up so many options coming from a raspberry pi 2. the raspberry pi 2 was great, but this is a very capable setup for an HTPC.

No, the same 3 boards have been offered with the same 5350 chip for months on end now. 2 ASRocks and 1 Gigabyte boards. The motherboard prices fluctuate, but the same items have been included with the same B&M only deal.


FYI The DC Powered ASRock AM1H-ITX does not show that it can be bundled, but it takes off the discount anyways.

Two Asrocks and an Asus in the previous post:

I could be wrong, but I believe this is the first time the Gigabyte board has been offered. Zero reviews on the board on Microcenter would seem to support that.
