Or maybe they do, but still charge the buyers 'retail'. and pocket the difference.)
For instance, look at this GTX 580. The current bid is $40, but the shipping charges are$31.14, and import charges are $9.31. So the total cost would be$80.54. It used to be only \$20 or so for shipping, direct from the seller.

Hi Jasonp, now I live in a house with a garden less than an hour driving from Tom’s so probably what I would suggest to him when we have our annual meeting (with Paul and David) at my house to discuss this subject since I need some support to persuade my wife to buy a shed and have that machine running. I really would like to add more memory to support NFS post-processing with free logins to the guys here to add work in case I’m abroad.

I think I still have dozens of 1 and 2GB DDR2 ECC modules. So please, someone take them from me. LOL
