Newegg is now offering a bundle that gives you AMD’s 6-Core 3.6GHz Ryzen 5 3600 CPU plus MSI’s X570-A Pro Motherboard for $289.88 shipped. For comparison, you’d pay around $180 for the processor and $155 for the motherboard at Amazon right now, with today’s bundle saving you nearly 15%. It’s rare that we see a deal like this come about, so if you’re looking to build a PC, this is a great starting place. AMD’s Ryzen 5 offers 6-cores and 12-threads for heightened performance, and MSI’s X570A motherboard packs PCIe Gen 4 for extreme speeds. Also, MSI’s motherboard offers a native USB-C connection, making it super simple to hook up next-generation products like Apple’s latest iPad Pro and more. AMD’s processor carries a 4.8/5 star rating and MSI’s motherboard scores 3.9/5 stars from customers.

Given you’re saving around $50 with today’s lead deal, why not put some of it to use to further help you build a PC? While the bundle might only include a motherboard and processor, just $35 can score you 8GB of DDR4 RAM for your system, knocking out one more building requirement.

On the storage front, be sure to check out Western Digital’s latest Blue SN550 NVMe SSD. It offers 2.4GB/s transfer speeds and prices from $55. Also, don’t forget to look at NZXT’s latest releases with new power supplies and RGB controllers, along with the company’s latest AiO coolers, which are essential when building a custom PC. Plus, Corsair just recently released a new MMO-style mouse that you should seriously take a look at. On the keyboard front, you should seriously consider Logitech’s wireless mechanical option which just fell to $60.
