i am almost positive you are talking about a celeron. if it's a 2.6Ghz Celeron processor than it is a total rip off for you and i would not buy it. also the shipping costs seem too much. you need to be shopping in canada or canadian online stores. do a google search for them or just shop at a local computer store. do they have a best buy or circuit city store there?
