    Click for combo

    Civ V will not appear until you add it to your cart, it's an "Intel Gift".

    Not the greatest price per GB, but I can always use another USB drive (even if it is fugly lol) for work and I'd been meaning to pick up Civ V since my friends got into it lately, so for me the overall value was hard to pass up and I'd love to put an SSD in my HTPC finally.

    Bump for the weirdest bundle I've come across.

    Want an SSD? Here, have a flash drive.

    Kind of meh for what you get. Lower SSDs should be approaching the $.50/GB range.. so $35 for a SSD, $10 for a cheap USB and $15 for a game? Only good if you really wanted the USB and the Civ 5.

    Strange indeed.

    Oh well, was looking to get an SSD for the wife's computer. A little smaller than I wanted to buy, but hard to pass up. Thanks op!

    EDIT: I actually already have the game. And the flash drive is pretty meh. I canceled.

    Actually a pretty good price and deal, but I better hold out for something bigger.

    I got my package today, installed Civ V and it turns out that it includes the Gods and Kings expansion as well. So that's cool.
