I need a motherboard and new CPU so is this a good deal?

I'm no expert, but that doesn't sound bad for a 2600 CPU and a motherboard. However, I wonder if the "bare CPU" in the title means that it does not include a heatsink and fan. If so, that will be an added expense, unless you already have a compatible heatsink and fan.
OTOH, I also notice that it says "Product currently unavailable", so whether or not it's a good deal may be a moot point.

It's a decent deal... yes, that's exactly what bare means. It would be better if you had an nforce2 chipset motherboard though. Fry's Electronics, Outpost's B&M store, has those for probably ~20-30 dollars less though.
