Cannot buy the 980X alone but with a motherboard? Who's master plan was that anyway? They should fire his ass.

Why would you buy that CPU... Especially if you only have a 5770.

I guess you aren't much of a gamer/overclocker. Could get an 5970 and a i7 920 and easily get it to 4GHz for less money. Would be triple the performance too.

The 5770 is a filler till the 480 is released.

His plans are far reaching; his wallet is impossibly deep.

He is the son of god ya know!

OT: I was actually thinking about this little stunt earlier. It seems to me Newegg is saying "hell, these people are loaded, lets get them for a mobo as well."

Combine them and still sell out in 10 minutes.

All morning they were out of stock with an ETA of 3/22/10.

Lol, since then they've "found some in stock", added another $30 to the price, and still bundle it with the mobo.

Still classic supply and demand. Move slow inventory by attaching it to something hot.

Dude your main rig says you already got one so there is no need for you to buy another!

Wrong, they're probably going to give him a raise. It's brilliant.

If someone is misguided enough to buy a 980x then whats an extra "few bucks"?

When I was in sales I'd do stuff like this all the time.

Zipzoomfly did this to me on a 5870 Vapor X ... bought it ... waited like 2 days status changed to backordered, I called Customer service they said they will not have any more for about a week... canceled the order, and bam they are back in stock and $40 higher.

Classy right?

4GB till another stick of DDR3 2000 arrives. I originally bought this memory for my P55 Clarkdale rig.

Two are already shipped back to Newegg with the third going out tomorrow. Weren't worth it IMO. Hopefully the 480 will be released very soon
