i don't think buying online is such a good idea.....i bought some stuff in the internet...and i can't complain
But there many pros and cons.....if you buy online...it might as well be within your home country or else....EX: Geforce 3 at $250 USD..WOW .....you go and buy it.....it arrives at your home (Europe) 2 mouths later....plus $100USD shipement charges.... them you repetly bang your head agains the wall cos all your friends already have a geforce 3 for half the price you paid in the store nest door...plus.... if the deal goes well and if the merchandise comes intact to your home..great!! , but then after a couple of days, the computer refuses to restart...you go to the store, they tell you it's the geforce 3 that has a defective component.. you say:
Oh well it is still within the warranty, so.... give me another one
They say ( here is my favorite part):
Sure it is....where you bought it !!!!!!!!!
(you get the idea from now on...)
I'm not saying DO NOt buy online....i'm just saying : Think twice!
