If you're anywhere near Towson, MD, a new Microcenter just opened there (November I believe). You may find some good in-store deals.

In the store, they have deals where with certain CPU's you get $40 off a motherboard. I recently bought my i3 and motherboard there. FWIW I live in Ellicott City. Kinda neat to see someone close to home on here.

They are usually very helpful at microcenter. If you have a general idea of what you want when you go in, you should come out just fine.
