yeah, it is pretty ridiculous. Looks like I missed quite a firefight. Once I saw a post to well a 200mmx chip for $200 bucks. At the time the cpu was worth just about as much as it is now, give or take a few. I laughed, but that's it. I guess my point is if I choose to ask for more than what you feel is reasonable, just just move on. You don't see me burning down best buy even though most of their stuff are nothing more than nicely packaged ripoffs.
and if you don't like the salesperson (I could use best buy as an example again), then just leave. Nothing personal.
