Just be glad you didn't order the Audigy 2 ($1,083.94) :shock: But hey, it's at least 10% off the MSRP! :P

And no, that wasn't the only comically priced item I could find - far from it.

I just noticed something - both the Audigy 2 and the first hard drive in your link are packs of 20 (those are the only two I checked). Part numbers:

Audgy = 70SB024400000-20PK
Seagate Cheetah = ST3300007LC-20PK

According to Pricewatch, not terribly - LINK. If you're on the fence about it, go ahead and place that order. :wink: :lol:

Possibly. Here's a pricewatch search for "Seagate Cheetah 10K.7 300GB".
There are a few that have lower prices, but I don't know if they're reliable resellers.

Yep:

Does Newegg.com deliver to APO or FPO addresses?

Yes, we deliver to APO/FPO addresses. APO/FPO orders are shipped by the United States Postal Service and usually take one to two business days to process and, once shipped, five to ten working days to deliver. However, Newegg.com cannot control delivery time. Some APO/FPO orders may require 2-6 weeks of lead time.

As an FYI, both Monarchcomputer and eXcaliberPC ship to APO/FPO addresses.

It looks like Directron.com does too. I've used them quite a few times in the past with no problems.

Quote:
3. Choose shipping options for Directron.com

These are Shipping Options available from Directron.com:

* UPS Ground Residential: Most inexpensive way to ship to residential house and apartment addresses. Arrival date depends on your distance from Houston, Texas and is not guaranteed. See a UPS map for estimated arrival date.
* UPS Ground Commercial: Most inexpensive way to ship to business addresses. Arrival date is not guaranteed.
3-Day Select (UPS) : Ground shipping, guaranteed to arrive in 3-days.
* 2-Day Air (UPS) : Air shipping guaranteed to arrive in 2 days.
* Next-Day Air (UPS) : Air shipping guaranteed to arrive the next day.
* USPS: Use US Postal Service only for APO, FPO, Commonwealth, and PO Box addresses. USPS is normally more expensive than UPS. One or two-day delay may occur because we have to drop off the packages.
* Pickup: If you live in Houston area you can pick up your order to avoid shipping charge. We encourage every one to place the order online before picking up to avoid waiting time. Shipping will not be charged.
* Federal Express 3-Day: We recommend this method for systems. FedEx is normally more expensive than UPS. One-day delay may occur because we have to call FedEx to schedule a pickup.
