Yup they are decent. Bought lots of stuff from them over the years.
If you really are concerned about cost then I could see getting a 2500K instead of a 2600K. Otherwise there is always a chance you might be able to use the HT in the future. I still need to RMA my board cause it's one of the first models. MSI P67-GD55. Been running fine since I've had it.
