Deal of the day: an RX 580-and-B350-mobo combo for $300

If you're building a new midrange PC but are still having trouble finding an affordable graphics card to put inside it, ASRock might have just the combo deal for you. Newegg will sell you a bundle with one of ASRock's Phantom Gaming Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics cards and AB350 Pro4 motherboards for $299.99 right now.

Depending on how you value rebates, that's a $70 motherboard after rebate or a $90 mobo pre-rebate on its own right now. The Radeon RX 580 8 GB was supposed to carry a sticker price of $229 when it launched way back in April of last year, so ASRock's post-rebate price on the AB350 Pro4 would technically represent enough value to get the Phantom Gaming card down to the RX 580 8 GB's suggested price.

Presuming the AB350 Pro4s in Newegg's warehouses are new enough stock to have firmware support for second-generation Ryzen CPUs, that board could prove a fine platform for the powerful stock-clocked Ryzen 5 2600X or the overclocker-friendly Ryzen 5 2600. As the foundation for an all-AMD PC, this bundle looks like a fine deal to me. Hat tip to VideoCardz for the spot.

    ASRock clearing out old B350 stock in preparation for the new B450 platform to be announced in a few days. Reportedly, board manufacturers have the new motherboards ready to roll as soon as the embargo is lifted.

    Odd combo that appeals only to the DIY builder starting a whole build completely from scratch.

    DDR4 pricing still means that people are unlikely to build new right now if their existing machine is even remotely capapble.

      honestly when I built this I decided to stick with 8GB, but the 16GB that was in my 1700 is still working fine so that didn’t happen

    nah, i’d rather spend a few extra pennies and get a better board.

      Sell the board so the GPU will cost you close to MSRP.

    If this was a few months ago I would have attributed the total lack of comments to a mad rush to get the RX-580 and throw the motherboard in the trash.

    Ah the good ol’ days.
