bait and switch...
[RANT!found this online.
http://www.compusa.com/applications/...ode=22-1822210 listed $139
the website said they had it in stock in Ft.lauderdale. called and confirmed. so over we go. get there and they tell me it's $130 more than the site says. why because they have the am2 vers with the mempipe. http://www.compusa.com/applications/...&Tab=11&NoMapp= so for a board that needs a bios update and has a part I can get for $8 they want to charge me and extra $130. then they try to talk me into a crossfire board that takes ddr3 instead of ddr2 for $229. what part of phenom, ddr2, sli don't they understand?
oh yeah insult to injury they told me on the phone still in the box but when I get there the box has been opened and the aux fan is missing. still want $269 tho'
I think I'll get the foxconn i want and force it into my case.[/RANT!]

they aren't in cali because tiger direct bought them, and closed most of the stores. they added a few to the 2 tiger direct outlets in miami-dade county, and kept the name for the new stores. they are all over south fl, but rare elsewhere.The path to universal understanding starts here: Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
