Low-end CPU / Mobo combo.

Hello!

I need a CPU / Motherboard combo under the 95 (thats like $110)
Onboard CPU is fine too.

And it needs to run GTA5 PC on lowest settings

Thanks for your answers.

It doesn't need to be an onboard CPU.
And does the motherboard affect the CPU quality in any way? If it doesn't, it can be a $10 motherboard.

Give us a link to the actual vendors you are likely to buy from.

Here is a list of motherboards that should be compatible with an i5-3470:
