Damm, I was going to buy and see how much California tax was going to cost me. If the cost was too much I was going to change my mind. But found out only ships in Canada.. Not USA.. Damm Canadians.. get all the best deals...

It's now $259, typical store trickery, mark up the price high then sell it a few weeks later for it's regular price and claim it's on sale.
Now Amazon can claim a sale of 99.99999999% off on it....bums.Workstation - Windows 7 x64

Now, I heard of sites making mistakes in the other direction (high end Cpus for $3, graphics cards for $1.50, etc) and then canceling the order if someone tries to take advantage of it. I wonder if Amazon would go through with the transaction if someone bought one at that price.Main: MOBO: MSI P67A-G45, CPU: i7 2600k w/ VenX (4.4ghz @ 1.33v), RAM: 2x8gb Kingston HyperX Blu Red Series DDR3 1600, GFX: Galaxy GTX670 GC, PSU: OCZ 1250w ZX, CASE: Corsair 500R, HDD: 120gb Samsung 840, WD 4TB Black

Some were able to print the web page (and order confirmation) out and get it matched at brick and mortar store, some were turned away, one got arrested for trespassing. Because some showed proof of actually getting the product, lawsuit ensued. I can't find the old page with all the glorious detail but I did find another site: http://www.resellerratings.com/store...st_Buy/page/85 Page 85 is the oldest complaint against Best Buy and has GF4 fiasco, go over a few page newer for more details.
EDIT: another site about Best Buy GF4 fiasco: http://forums.storagereview.com/inde...ti4600-fiasco/ and also http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/artic...t_BestBuy.com/

I wanted to have Six Million Dollars Man show on DVD but dang... There's probably only 50 people in USA that can afford that DVD video. I hope that seller has a very low expectation of actually getting a sale.space for rent

The $2.98 shipping is what kills the deal for me.
