Not too shabby.

RPi 3
Case
Power Supply
8gb MicroSD with OS installed

Those parts bought separately would cost you more than $45 (not by much depending on the deals you could find, but still)

Thanks Rea, I was reading and this does NOT come with heat sinks. Does anyone know if that is a problem for these?

Would need a filler item but you can get the board for 29.99 - 5 coupon as well...

It's not bad, but since you're already at MicroCenter, I'd go with $25 for the RPi3 (which I did) and pick the best reviewed case (not stuck with the one they give you) online. At this point you're in for about $35. Almost everybody has an old tablet charger, sd card, and micro-usb cable. Save $10 and probably end up with a better solution.

I'd go for a different power adapter, my 5V 2A adapter didn't work well with my Pi3 and neither did my iPad 5.1V 2.1A adapter. I ended up getting a 5V 2.5A power adapter from amazon:

Any time I tried playing games through emulation station, I'd get that little thunderbolt icon in the upper right screen and my games would slow down. After I got the above adapter it went away.

RPi is designed to not need a heatsink. People that are running them particularly intensively (RPi clusters, heavy video, etc.) seem to think they will extend the life of the hardware with a heatsink.

What case would you recommend?

I'm by no means an expert since I've had the Pi3 for only a few days. I got the white one by OneNineDesign [amazon.com]. every port is easily accessible, it looks clean, the top comes off for accessing other ports. But there's cases that are Lego compatible, wood, clear, almost everything you can think of.

Do you have a link to the $25 rpi? I just looked on the site and didnt see any that low.
