Is this a good deal or should I wait till it comes down in price
Seems Aus prices are becoming a joke
This is really not too bad of a price. Is that Australian dollars or USD?
If your paying AUS then thats about $411 USD
currently the average price on the r2 is around $180 and the 8350 is around $190
So in the US its going for about $370 USD or 399 AUS
I did manage to find this one on sale though:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131877R
even with international shipping rates you should be able to get that for fairly cheap (open box on sale 143.99 usd + ship)
I am not familiar with newegg and international shipping though or what the costs might be.
So I guess Id say if its $444 AUS then its not too much more then here, if its $444 USD I would probably wait or shop elsewhere. Of course this just may be the way AUS has there prices, you might not be getting a bad deal either way depending what the cost factor is there in Australia.
Kinda like comparing apples to oranges cant really say if its a good price if everyone else there in Aussie normally pays $500 for the combo or something.
Just read last post. I guess the newegg thought is a no-go sorry
. Id really check e-bay see what you can find, probably your best bet. Or a similar site that does ship to AUS
probably cost an arm and a leg to ship and make up for the difference in price, but they ship internationally, cheapest i could find Edited by dmfree88 - 7/23/13 at 1:26am
