Any good mobo/cpu/ram combo deals on Black Friday?

I live on the Peninsula, so the closest Fry's to me is in Palo Alto.

Um... Looks like TigerDirect has a deal on AMD A6 with MSI FM2-A55M-E33 for 80 after rebate. Is this worth it? There's an i5 3750k and Gigabyte z77-ds3h for 260 next to it

Oh, well I live directly in San Jose. I would say get the i5 and MSI. I currently have that same proccesor with an ASUS mobo but MSI is even better than my asus. The CPU is strong enough for any game. I'm about to SLI my GTX 760 and the i5 won't bottleneck it.

Since this is my mom's computer and she's not going to need a powerhouse, I'm looking at cheaper alternatives. How's this?

MSI H81M-P33 V2 LGA 1150: 49.99 (39.99 after rebate)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130729
i3-4330: 119.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116945

I'll probably pull out 8 gigs from my computer and get the 16gig deal from Frys

Do the AMD one and you only need 4GBs of RAM.

Did the AMD a6 combo. It's an a6 5400k apu in the combo. Will the gpu in the apu be better than a nVidia 7600gt?

Thank you all! It's been a long time since I've rebuilt a machine. Looking forward to doing this again.
