Ok OCC lol at this:
480 + Resident evil game 510 $(Newegg USA)
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814127502
GigaByte 470 549$ (e-mag Romania - has some of the best priced components in the country)
http://www.emag.ro/p...--pN470D5-13I-B

1 USD = 3.1 RON
All the prices in Europe are roughly the same. I'm not sure what the transport fees are but i bet i could get everything cheaper just by ordering them in from the USA; I just don't know anyone there.

... At least we have croissants

mobo: Gigabyte X58 UD3R.
CPU: i7 920 @ 3.4 GHz 1.2v. == Chilled by Titan Fenrir Evo ==
video: Inno3D nVidia GTX 470 @ 775/1550/1775.
RAM: OCZ Gold 2x2GB @ 1440 CL7 1.65v.
HDD: Cheap-O HDD.
PSU: Corsair 650TX.
case: NZXT Hades.

^ This does indeed make me jealous. I LOVE croissants.
“Rumor has it the State of the Union is today rather than tomorrow to avoid conflicting with the Lost premiere. But my feelings towards one are pretty similar to my feelings towards the other: I’m confused by the most recent plot twists and skeptical that the writers can wrap it all up in one tidy package.” By Ezra Klein, talking about the 2010 State of the Union Address.

Yeah but the bears are so afraid of us Finnish people so they tend to back off and cry when we walk past them.

Silver is Correct! ;)

we're just better off buying from within the EU, else you get charged (i forget how much %) but it just doesn't make it worth the hassle. Back in the day when 1GBP=2USD i was always buying from America and Canada, but now our currency has become SO sucky its just not worth it, infact people from abroad are buying stuf from us in the UK! :doh:

You guys live in one of the coldest and darkest places on earth voluntarily. I'd be afraid of you too, you're all clearly insane, who knows what might set you off :P
