Ah, that makes perfect sense. I had a rough understanding of how MC gives/takes on their deals, and your explanation was crystal clear. I appreciate your response!
I don't think I want to wait until prices are affected by Haswell, could be awhile from now. I guess I'll dive in & finish the build sooner.
Come Haswell, because it's a new socket, they will clear out old mobo and CPU stock like hot cakes. I'm banking on at least 33-50% clearance (50% not including the bundling discount.) May last year they halved the price of the z68 motherboards. CPUs might not see as big a jump because they don't take up much inventory. But it'll be interesting to see what happens because it's a new socket w/ no backwards compatibility (unlike AMD w/ AM3+.)
