    Deal Alert

    Chuck A. McIntyre Level 3

      Fry's Electronics has a decent offer I spotted this morning for those of you building a new CS5 editing rig...

      Motherboard Combo:

      Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R

      Intel Core i7 930


      Fry's price after $20 rebate $364.99

      Newegg.com's price, over $500 when you include shipping.


      My budget home computer has a similar but different Gigabyte motherboard model, the EX58 UD3R rev. 1. It only has 4 Ram slots.  This model motherboard on sale at Fry's is an X58 with 6 Ram slots capable of 12GB of Ram, or if your budget allows expensive 4GB modules; 24GB.


      Here are the motherboard specs from the gigabyte.com website:
