Default Pays to Price Shop!

My friend just got the Zalman CNPS 7000B-AlCu
from Newegg for $39.99 + $.99 Shipping and then
I find this at Amazon.


http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...onics&n=507846


I still think newegg is great but it definately pays to shop
around sometimes.


FYI. The price at Amazon at the time of this post is
$28.99 + free shipping.

I've learned that once I buy something don't look at prices on that item again! Ya know it's always gonna be cheaper!!!

I'd rather pay the extra $10 to help newegg since their good people, not saying amazon is not. Of course sometimes you'll find an item cheaper, but it's better not to look so you don't hit yourself

Do Your Research!
of course its better to look around before you buy something.. unless ure like me and like to shop on a "spur of the moment"!! . And yes, never look back! darn prices are always dropping.

Your absolutely right, I learned this the hard way. Whenever building a system, be sure to heavily reasearch every part before you buy.
