Maybe he doesn't live in the states. Buying parts from other countries can get really expensive. Its normal to be paying double the price if you're outside the united states / canada.

Yeah, but it still begs the question....what store and where does he live? I can understand international shipping being very high, just depends on where it's going.

So you paid $1229 for the PC without KB/mouse/monitor and $700 for shipping and tax?

With where he lives it was a very fair price. Enough please. My i7 build was about 30% more than you would pay in the states.

I live in Norway and the computer was made by a company called Komplett.no - Nettbutikk for datautstyr, PC, bærbar PC, TV, foto, video og spill.
Best in my country.
