    Yeh, most things are around the 2x mark, video cards 3x mark. Although the prices listed above on that video card and CPU are a good deal higher than the entry price on those products.

    Although we do find PSU's & Case fans pretty decently cheap here, ive seen antec truepower 430's selling for $80USD, and you can pick up a truepower 430 here for about $140, so for once we are cheaper on something after currency conversion. Ive also seen delta 80mm fans sellign for between $15-20 usd, but you can pick them up here for under $25, i paid $22 for mine

    I think it should all be the same. The prices being different by that much is stupid. I know, I know, it's the shipping and what not but still...

    Well, there is also supply and demand which dictates price, due to the fact that we have a much smaller population than USA we are going to receieve a fraction of the computer stock that america does, which means higher purchase price. Also nVidia & ATI are based in USA and canada so obviously they are going to be cheaper there.

    What I wouldhave done was....

    get SCSI devices......

    waited for the Nv30 and Quadro'd it

    gotten a ViewSonic Professional series monitor or trinitron

    gotten a Dual-chip SuperMicro board with the onboard ultra SCSI :) hehehe

    and crucial memory

    then again this might cause you to fall outside the $4000 bracket lol

    Even though a lot of companies are US based doesn't mean the product comes from there. In most cases 97% of all items we get are assembled and packed in SE Asia and delivered straight from there. :confused:

    But yes it really boils down to the discounts available to resellers in countries with high populations. :cry:

    This country maybe very large but most of it is inhospitable and extremely dry (saying that this continent is about 85% desert, or almost, doesn't leave a great deal of room for mountains, lakes, rivers, places for ppl to live, grow food, forrests, etc,..). :(

    Yeh, we have a VERY low population density since most of the country is inhospitable to humans, the cities however are getting overcrowded, everywhere i look these days town houses are being built near where i live and the traffic in incrasing 10 fold as is the crime.
