Re: Need some comments on this deal
Well part of the deal was that if I buy any intel CPU I get 20% off of any MSI motherboard, hence my decision for MSI. And then on top of that, the 2600k was on sale, everything else was normal price though. I've had bad luck with ASUS myself anyways though, and newegg seems to give this particular motherboard good reviews, and it does SATA3 so I went with it.
Also my only hesitation with the intel 510 drives is that they use the marvell controller which is a lot slower than intel's own controllers from what I hear (though why they didn't use one is a mystery.)
