You are right. The mobo doesn't have free shipping now.
If you wait a couple days, I'm sure you will find another combo with free shipping.
Another good case recommended by a lot of people in this forum is the Antex three hundred, which I just ordered.
Newegg doesn't give it free shipping right now, so you can get it from buy.com with free shipping, or just add $4.55 for a second day shipping. http://www.buy.com/prod/antec-three-hundred-atx-compute...
