Well, that's how some people make money I guess. They strive off of people's ignorance.

Just to think NewEgg is making money also. I mean really how much does it cost to make those chips? It doesnt cost must for a microwave and there are processors in those.lol. Maybe not to a PC chips extent, but none the less.

the reason best buy is more expensive than newegg

newegg receives the products at their warehouse
they pay a certain fee to keep their website up and good looking

bestbuy receieves the prouducts at there warehouse
they distribute it to their retail stores
the retail stores have to shelf the items
the store also has to keep a good appearance, to attract customers
the store also has to hire salesmen, cashiers, and other staff

thats why bestbuy is more expensive

yea 2x the price of something thats already over bulk price is greedy.. thats prolly somewere around 300% or more profit.
----------------------------------------------
wen u buy comp parts, your not realy paying for the manufacturing(most likely the cheepes part of the proccess).. ur paying more twords research and development. same thing with medication. those pills prolly didnt cost more then a nickle to manufacture.
