It was a joke man

My experience has always been I pay more for the shipping but still get it in the same amount of time. Has ****ed me off several times in a row so I never pay extra anymore.

I have only used Amazon once and their shipping was great, but it was only once. 6 or so years ago I got a gift card to Amazon and sat on their site thinking what in the world could I possibly buy for 50 bucks that I need. Found these speakers and clicked on the free shipping. Was supposed to take an estimated week or so, but only took 2 days. Not bad, but from what I'm hearing in all these years the service is still pretty good. I still prefer Newegg for PC parts but if you have free money to spend might as well use it.

Nvidia = SLI, and no you can't. You can only SLI like chips so 660 with 660.
