Default best place to find evga gtx 285?

ok, if i can i would like to aviod paying sales tax on this purchase im about to make.

i live in CA so keep that in mind.


if i get this one from newegg:
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1180-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

it would cost me $386.45 after tax+ shipping.
tiger direct would cost $356.98 (but i would have to wait a week for shipping)


other than amazon, is there a better place to get this?

NCIXUS.com - Great Technology, Selection and Service. is the place to go. there express shipping will be 10$ most likely, and they will be cheaper then new egg, even price match anywhere cheaper. they will also give you the same quality service as newegg.com tiger direct prolly wont even answer the phone.
