I'm fixing to order my Core 2 setup and am debating between buying from Newegg or ZipZoomFly. I divied everything up at ZipZoomFly and it doesn't include tax in the shopping cart as of yet. Does it charge after you decide to buy?? Newegg shows the amount of tax and shipping prior to hitting the buy button. Anyone know for sure??
I'm getting:
E6600
2 Gigs Corsair XMS2 PC2 800
Evga 680i
8800 GTX

firstly, wrong forum
secondly, it depends on what state you live in whether a certain online retailer will charge you tax.

The reason I posted here is because most of the folks here would probably know . Sorry to the moderators.....I live in Tennessee so I'm still wondering.

If the etailer is actually present in your state then they will charge you tax. I don't think newegg is in Tennesee so they won't. I am not sure about zipzoomfly.

I hate the fact that I get charged tax at newegg. But if its something for <$150 i usually get from there anyway. If i pick 3 day shipping it usually comes the next day since im in NJ and newegg has a warehouse here. :)

What assholes. I am never ordering from them now. Not that the mistake happened, everyone company will have it's mistakes. But they didn't even try to fix it at all...jerks.

Besides, their website doesn't even look professional. Get a decent looking one..geez.
