    Don't know how long this deal is on for, but it is insanely worth it--just ensure it's a retail part and not an OEM part with a 30-day warranty. I try to stay very far away from that stuff, as with OEM you never know where it's been and how long it will last! Could function for ten years--could function for 31 days (one day after the OEM warranty expires) before giving up the ghost. Still $40 isn't gambling a lot, though, is it? The 8320e is one heck of good, solid 8-core cpu that, combined with a mobo like MSI's 970a Gaming, and cheap (is DDR3 still cheap today, I wonder?) DDR3 system ram--makes for a nice 8-core budget build. Used the 8320e myself at home exclusively from 2012 through 12/2017 when I bumped up to a Ryzen build--recommend it highly. It's a no brainer against 2/4 core DDR3 i3's, i5's that sell even *close* to this pricing range, of course...;) Will flatten those systems in multi-threaded performance, no doubt.

    You can get 16GB DDR3 1600 amd only for less then $100 on ebay. I have a set, it works nicely surprisingly. But yea, this would be a fantastic budget build. Prices of DDR3 have gone up too sadly. Even on used market.
