Yeah , there are couple of stores near my place , but according to the above mentioned price they say an extra 30-40$.. So the overall rate would exceed $650+ !!!

Is there another store that would be significantly cheaper? On a $600 budget it helps to get the most bang-for-your-buck and knowing local availability is very helpful in determining that. I'm in the US so I had to use my currency conversion tool to look up the exchange rates and I realized I went way over $600. :lol:

Alot of stores will price match newegg and tiger direct so take that into consideration. When i built my rig i went into microcenter with a full list and bought everything i could there, price matching newegg. Saved something like $300, $150 alone on my graphics card. If your spending a decent amount of money places shouldnt have an problem price matching. Microcenter didnt want to price match my graphics card and with $600 worth of stuff already in my cart i said i will just leave and buy everything from newegg. They changed there tone real quick..haha. I had to pay taxes but i still made out like a bandit considering the price they wanted to charge.

It happens... I suggested Newegg one time and the OP was in Estonia, so that didn't work. :lol:
