The below article was first published on September 3rd, 2009. We recommend that readers hoping to bag a bargain stay tuned to the HEXUS.community forums where HEXUS members are actively detailing the availability of MSI's promotional boards. Still undecided about Intel's Lynnfield processors? Take a look at our in-depth review and analysis.

Now that we know Intel will be launching its Lynnfield-based LGA 1156 processors on September 8th, MSI has revealed that it will run a limited promotion on its supporting P55-GD65 and P55-GD80 motherboards.

Come launch day, MSI will be knocking a massive 55 per cent off the asking price of its two range-topping boards. Consequently, the P55-GD65, with a suggested retail price of £139.99, will be made available for as little as £63! The top-end P55-GD80, meanwhile, would normally fetch £189 and could be yours during the promotion for just £85.50.

Sounds like a cracking deal, and MSI tells us it will offer the promotional prices on a limited quantity of stock - meaning the offer could last only hours. The promotion will run at SCAN*, Ebuyer, CCL and Overclockers, and we're told purchases will be limited to one board per customer.

If you weren't planning on a Core i5/Core i7 build, MSI may just have convinced you otherwise. Want to take a closer look at the two boards on offer? Check out our video walkthrough with MSI's Richard Stewart and our very own Tarinder Sandhu:

*As always, UK-based HEXUS.community discussion forum members will benefit from the SCAN2HEXUS Free Shipping initiative, which will save you a further few pounds plus also top-notch, priority customer service and technical support backed up by the SCANcare@HEXUS forum.

*Update* MSI has confirmed to HEXUS that its allocation of promotional boards has now sold out.

OMG, I might actually get one now Q_Q

btw I just watched that video, Tarinder Sandhu cheer up a bit :)
OMG i'm so going to try and get one… Cannot wait till lynnfield comes out. It has timed perfectly for when I've finished saving so hoping to get a brand new rig.

Just hope they're not all gone by the time i'm back from school.
If i can, I will certainly buy one at that price!
Cheap as chips! Is there a similar deal on the Core i5 CPUs? ;)
Quite. Good price on the mobo, but how much will the CPU be?
