Hey there Tek and guys from the forum . So I saw your 1200$ PC Build (Build) with the AMD FX-8350 so I decided to go for it since my PC is getting kinda really old with my Athlon X4 940 and my 5870 GPU . Basically I took all the parts listed in the video and went on one of the biggest and best PC selling websites in Romania where I'm from and I noticed something really disturbing .
So take a look at these prices:
AMD FX-8350 : 830 RON (255 $) in US : 189.99$
Corsair Hidro H100i (Kraken is not available in my country) : 510 RON (157 $) in US : 139.99$
Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 : 746 RON (230 $) in US : 179.99$
Kingston HyperX Blu 2x8 GB (G skill not available here) : 746 RON (230 $) in US : 99.99$
Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM : 380 RON (117 $) in US : 89.99$
Kingston HyperX 3K 120 GB : 476 RON (146 $) in US 104.99$
Gigabyte Geforce GTX 670 (PNY Not available here) : 1345 RON (414 $) in US : 300 $
NZXT Tempest 410 : 472 RON (145 $) in US : 60 $
Cooler Master GX750 : 436 RON (134 $) in US : 70$
The PC Part picking website from Romania is : www.pcgarage.ro . If you buy all these parts from different websites which sell those specific parts cheaper you'll be able to save around from $50 to $70 but you need to pay shipping for all those parts so it doesn't really make a difference
This build in US costs : $1234.90 and in Romania it costs : $1828
Keep in mind that the prices in Romania are updated to 10.20.2013 and the prices in US are still the prices when the : 1200$ AMD Build was posted so at the moment this specific system in US will be around : $1000
So let's say the prices are the same ... Even then there is a difference of $593
600 Dollars is alot of money.
Could you guys let me know what do you think about this huge price difference or you are more than welcome to show me some of the prices in your country.
