Like Trance said, maybe the motherboard doesn't cost that much to start out. Plus, Zipzoom.. always have a good deal on processors (in some cases, way cheaper than Newegg). Combine that with the lower price motherboard and you got a bargain deal.

No, newegg is overpriced in this case. I ordered my Winchester 3500+ for $278. Here:

Newegg are bad people this time around.
