Pricing is very weird on Newegg or just very weird in The Netherlands. For example:

Newegg Gigabyte GTX 770 = $ 330 ---> Dutch price € 300

Newegg MSI R9 290 (stock cooler) = $ 550 ---> Dutch price € 360

The difference is huge on the Radeon cards!

if you have newegg there it will be - € 500. redface.gif

I'm quite proud of my first lap, it might not be the best job, but looks good to me.

See you elsewhere! thumb.gif

Thanks for the update - removed. smile.gif

I know the gpu wont be a problem, but mem and vrm location could be...
