Cpu shopping, do you think this site is legit?

http://brand.camover.co.uk/Wholesale-processors_c19

I was shopping around on newegg and decided to get a i7 2600k and a sabertooth mobo. I was curious to see if i could find lower prices elsewhere, and found this site. It's selling the same products at about half the price. the site has a very limited selection, but lucky for me they carry exactly what i want. do you guys think this site is legit? should i trust them and save 200 bucks or should i go with the tried and true newegg?
thanks for whatever advice you have!

    There is no way anyone on this planet can sell retail boxed components at half the price of everyone else. Something here certainly sounds fishy. I would say you are taking a pretty chance here of being scammed in some way, either its a pricing mistake to lure you in and then pull the old bait and switch, or they may be counterfeit or remarked.
  3. yeah i think i agree... i was just going through the order process (wasnt going to pay just yet, just checkign things out) and it cut me off after i decided payment type and said "order complete", and that they were going to email me about credit card info. sooooo yeah this site is BS
  4. Agreed :lol: and the credentials on the bottom look a bit iffy, and I'm not bashing Chinese or anything (heck, my significant other is Chinese :lol: ) but when it says "Chinese Whole Stock" I ALWAYS start getting suspicious.

    When it comes to PC hardware, the competition is very, very stiff. Profit margins are thin to start with. Pricing may vary a few dollars, or you may catch something on sale for say 10% off occasionally, and of course, some items do come with manufacturer's rebates (for what ever that is worth to you) but outside of a discontinued or older revision of a product, pricing is pretty consistent among all the reputable vendors.
