Look at the PriceGrabber bar up there...it's $8 for an AGP 6600GT! What the hell?!

It's showing up on their page as being that much and even in the basket it's $8. I think I'm going to order one. :)

sigh, I know what's going to happen. I'll order it and then in a day or two, I'll get the email saying that they have to cancel my order due to a pricing discrepency. I only have $45 until Friday and I have to go grocery shopping. When I get back in, depending on how much money I have left over, I'll see about ordering one. :)

Man, books KILLED me this semester. :(

Read the fine print...no expressed warranty, including price. Still, it has been posted since the 8th?

Wait, what does price have to do with the warranty? And it's been $8 since 9/8?

No, I got that wrong...it was added to their catalog on Dec 8, 2004. :o

It is a 6600GT as it is listed with Manufacturers Part Number: 128-A8-N350-TX.
That is the part # for a EVGA 6600GT. If true that could be the buy of the year but it must be a misprint.

Here is what the fine print states: 'We diligently strive to provide as accurate information as possible. However, as manufacturers provide a large proportion of this information, we make no warranty expressed or implied with respect to accuracy of the information, including price, product descriptions or product specifications. Both the product and manufacturer names are used only for the purpose of identification.'

Look at their merchant ratings. They appear to have a history of dissatisfied customers.

No apologize nor "Thank you" words given in emails. They mistaken for putting the item as in stock which really wasn't. Emailed me and told me they can ship directly from manufacturer but I have to pay tax. And again, in the email, there's no "thanks" or such words. Which gave me an impression that I as a customer isn't valuable to them.

"BottomLinePrice" didn't include US$15.00 for handling fees.

Please note that in the checkout I wanted to use my amex. ....But did not because the secure lock was not visable when my credit card information was to be input. I used paypal to complete my tranaction because it does not appear that the site is secure when entering my credit card information.

Security-wise, I was impressed. Asking me for the CID and the Customer Service number was a pretty good idea.

BE AWARE::: Dont do business with this company. They play the old fashion switching game after you place an order.They play old style " promotion has been expired" type of game. They will never tell that when you place an order. Sounds like an onliine scam business to me. I will report this company to consumer affairs and better business bureau. BAD BUSINESS ETHICS.

To be honest the information about the product was very poor. Besides that shipping was quite expensive, considering most shops offer free shipping nowadays

And the site is dead now.

That site should be reported to the BBB. They're listed on the BBB site but for some strange reason the report details page on them does not load, eventually errors out.
