yea I made an error.

I forgot to add the bundle.

I had it clicked but hit the wrong add to cart.. so i only had the CPU added.
I cancelled, I'm going to reorder.

This is a micro ATX board. Any limitation with that? I would like a full ATX board. Will all 780 chipset mobos perform similarly?

Where is this deal? I can't find the combo with the memory. Did Newegg take it down?

There are so many other combos with a mobo. Which combo will be good to OC?

Friggin NY State and their dumbass sales tax law. Moreso, why the hell is Newegg charging sales tax in NYS? They have no "affiliates" here...

from NewEgg.com
Newegg.com charges the appropriate state and/or local sales tax rate is charged for any order shipping to these three states California, New Jersey, New York, and Tennessee. Sales tax for cell phone orders shipping to CA and TN are calculated before any instant savings are applied.

Which is ONLY in response to NYS's new Amazon tax law that went into effect June 1st. Before June 1, there was no sales tax on NYS residents from Newegg.

Thanks for the confirmation. What is an "afaik," by the way?

"As far as I know"

The processor is still a hot deal by itself for $72, but you can probably snag some good DDR2 for $20 after rebate elsewhere (Fry's, Newegg). If I had the money to put into a new system I would have bit on the combo myself.

More often than not, I fail to react fast enough and miss out on the deal. This time I pounced in time. :)

They're now offering the processor with a free Thermaltake Soprano Case (Here) under combos. Might be hotter than the Free RAM Combo prior :thumbsup:

Still have to pay around $17+ shipping, but otherwise not bad.

Hmm, I thought that if it was a retail CPU then it should come with a HSF. I've been on the fence about this one, but if it doesn't come with a HSF, then it's not as good a deal as I was thinking it was.

yes, I guess I assumed that as well. It is retail box, but if you look under specs on Newegg, it says processor only.

I got it for $67 shipped..so I dont feel too bad about it, but if I had known I would have just gotten the 4600+ instead.

Yes, that is what it means (among other things).

You don't want a crummy stock CPU cooler with a processor like that, anyway, right? :)
