Default Newegg ovrepriced

Ok im not saying all of newegg is overpriced only the AMD Opteron 146. i love the advantage of pricegrabber cause i searched an opteron 146 and on ecost it sells for 154$ and on newegg its over a hundred more at 259$. IM SHOCKED AT YOU NEWEGG!

everything else is deliciously priced.

Yes, but from what I've found, newegg is the only place that has it in stock.

Oh and eCost is incredibly unreliable from what I hear, I wouldn't buy anything from there

Wasn't there a thread a few days ago... with a kid ranting about how he got seriously hosed by "ecost"?

They basically bent him over and gave him the prison treatment. (ouch)
