Get the parts soon - I'm assuming your newegging it. They will hike prices as soon as sept. comes. Right now they are selling at cost and loosing money. I know cuz my rep. at quickmicro sells to them... and generally during the summer their prices are better than I can get from my distributor who they also by from because they do this. Once september comes - the prices are always way better from distributors. They have to do this in the summer because the summer months are always down months in computer businesses and they have to keep making cash to pay their employees.
