This doesn't seem to make much sense on th surface, but honestly I am not the system builder I used to be, so I can see at least a small measure of appeal in what they are doing. I still like picking my own parts, but maybe not having to worry about which proc is compatible with which mobo isn't such a bad thing? I tend to upgrade my motherboard and cpu much less frequently than my memory and videocard anyway.

This isn't really a problem anymore though, old chipsets and CPUs are aggressively sunset nowadays. The little you gain does not offset the potential problems and removal of choice.
