i was watching an item on ebay.. it was a sandy 3700 cpu. i was going to bid 80 dollars max because 10 dollar shipping would've taken it to 90 dollars shipped if i won. newegg has them for 93 shipped. i figured i might win because the newegg price is 93 dollars. <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=320040693379&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=011" target="_blank">somebody </a>went and bid a winning bid of 91 dollars with ten dollar shipping. so they bought it for 101 dollars shipped. this cpu is 6 months old used. im confused on what brought this person to bid over, do people really just don't check newegg? im thinking since i cant find a good deal on a used item because ppl are willing to overpay i might as well start selling on ebay now.. <img src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)" class="inlineimg" />

perhaps it was a stepping they where looking for, sure beats newegg and a random unchoosable stepping unless you go to tankguys and pay more for a certain one.

maybe they don't know about newegg? Could just be that they only shop on eBay! lol.<br />
<br />
EDIT: Or they didnt' realize the shipping difference.

People are getting ripped on ebay more than ever these days, most things i see on there i can get cheaper from a shop unless its really rare etc.<br />
<br />
I do agree with the stepping thing Akhen said about tho.

</div>Thankguys.biz gives you the code on the processor when you purchase, the popular ones are usually slightly more but at least you secure yourself something you can overclock.
