    One thing that pisses me off

    Is that Germany has dirt cheap Computer Hardware.

    Like come on, a 70$ case, for only 11 Euros?

    I put together a list that only cost 1,100 Euros, and ended up costing nearly $1,700 USD.

    When I go to Germany in October, I'm buying a computer out there.

    It's messed up. Like I get Europe is mostly PC gamers, but to make your shit cheaper than the rest of the world? Please let me move there.

    Well it is to do with the exchange rate. 1USD is 70cents in euro dollars.
    Oh hai der.

    Whatever, Canada may be expensive, but it gives more satisfaction when you buy things.

    Was originally theorizing that, but 1,100 Euro equates to only about $1,500 USD.
    Still about 12% cheaper.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    It's just regional pricing at work. They wouldn't be able to sell anything without lowering cost.

    Well, I've yet to see such betrayal here in the Netherlands. Most likely cuz of the exchange from USD To EUR. Look for dat in the Netherlands , I could use some good deals.

    Why not? Regular prices are far from 12% lower than the US if you look at the usual pricing which is 1$=1Eur.
