don't try to compare newegg prices with australian prices.

here in Canada we get screwed and get way crappy deals compared to the US, but you guys in ausy really get the shafting as you get bad selection and HIGH pricing. lotta aussies use TF so maybe one of them will be able to suggest a good AU website..?
