I would logically think that with the graphics card prices being the way they are that the MB and cpu prices would drop to attract people to there stores

Not sure I agree. With the overall silicone shortage and the massive demand from the 'work from home' shift, I doubt there's any pressure to drop prices on any component save old tech or accessories they're not able to move (aka normal clearance procedure).

From a consumer point of view, sure it'd be nice to see a drop, but intel/AMD and the MB board partners aren't going to take a hit on their CPUs or MBs just because GPUs have gone bonkers.
Hell a number boards of the companies that are both GPU partners and MB suppliers are probably pinching their flank with glee when they see quarterly statements

I was think more in line of less people buying because of less gpus so they ( meaning the stores ) would drop the prices of other components like mbs and CPUs to draw in customers there seems to be allot more of CPUs and MBs out there then GPUs

Probably based on old school don't-use-windows-to-update-your-bios thinking from the '90s, but I still get unreasonably nervous while doing firmware updates through windows update..... :)

I have used these methods for several years now and I still feel odd doing it. mostly on laptops and stuff cause I still try to use bios because UEFI boards make it so easy, well most of them

You can still collect pc points at esso or redeem.

I personally like chevron but their rewards program is the worst I’ve ever been involved in. Lol If you have cibc you can link to get an extra per litre discount.

To be fair most of the time was spent over seas. It's only been in NA for 3 days. Plus it's world ease so there are many packages within the shipment. The question is, what was the ETA when you ordered and is Oct 4 within that timeframe?

Your wait is almost over.
