People from other countries could help me here. I was wondering about the pricing of computer components in other countries, and more especially whether such prices would be proportionate to the cost of living there.
My parents are going to Bulgaria tomorrow, and there the cost of living is very cheap. Which means you can buy quality at a very good price, even though for the natives it might not be since their wages would also be low.
In my country (Malta) a small apartment costs $150,000 whereas in Bulgaria its equivalent would cost maybe $15,000.
Now if computer parts are proportionately as cheap I'll be making a shopping list ready!
In my country computer parts are sooooo ridiculously inflated it's unthinkable!
Check out the 8800GTX in a Maltese shop
it's 321 Maltese Liri which converted to USD is ....... hold on tight and breathe in ..... ready?............. USD 965
The equivalent on Newegg
is USD 569.
Is there anyone from Bulgaria here, or maybe you know someone who is, or maybe you have been there?
Also, if you for example were to go to your nearest local shop and get an 8800GTX 768MB what would be the price you would have to pay for it?
Duh, Malta's nice for viewing historical sites, culture, nightlife, diving, beaches..... but definitely do not attempt to buy computer parts from here!!!
