My current ESXi rig is limited to 8GB's of RAM so I've been in the market for a new *cheap* MB/CPU/RAM combo.

Honestly, I thought this board was going to ring up at $69.99. You can imagine my surprise when I saw $29.99!! Of course this board doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles and it isn't for everyone but with 32GB's max memory possible it's an awesome whitebox board!

There was only one left on the shelf at the Paterson, NJ store...

LOL...no wonder why it was that cheap!
Okay, so if you need a CPU as well, it's a good deal.

Good post, but you must have been living under a rock the last year or so if you didn't know Microcenter had CPU/MOBO deals.

I don't browse this forum very often and don't shop at Microcenter regularly.
Thanks for your support though...

Not everyone lives near a MC and/or Fry's... :rolleyes:
True dat. The nearest ones to me are over 40 min and $15 away (Gas and tolls). Most of the time it isn't worth the hassle. It's not a store I walk in and out of quickly, too much shit to look at.
