Considering that it normally goes for around $600, and the 930 tends to be $300, I would say that would be a steal.

What kind of computer would you build around it?

if its not a scam, go for it. drop it in a nice ud3 or so from giga, with the choice of 6 gigs from gskill or whatever you find on special. the rest being dependent on what youll need the pc for.

welcome to both? :)

I'm still not sure as I wasn't thinking of one but I'll start with the cpu and look around for other components over the next few weeks.It will undoubtedly be a Gamer.
Thanx for the input

I don't think its a scam as the seller (from another site)is a respected member with good feedback.I am gonna meet with on weekend.The pc will most likely be a gamer as it seems a shame to use that cpu for anything but.
Thanx for your input
