How much is the minumum wage in a america, over here it is 5.90 dollars,, now is it the same or higher over there..
sniff i want a geforce 3 for 100 bucks, let along the geforce 2 mx 200 costs 130 dollars plus tax ,,
LOL, out minimum wage is $6.75
Are you serious, a geforce3 for 100 dollars??
Yeah well the Australian dollar is only worth 50 cents to the American dollar... but the prices are the same in Australian as American... hmmm now that really sux
Well you do the math.
The Canadian dollar is worth $.62 to the American dollar.
So $350 Canadian dollars is worth $220 US.
$100 is a sweet deal.
How can his Ti200 cost $350 then?
GeForce 3 Ti 200's cost from $130-170 over here, not $220.
You sure the price didn't go down up there?
Yep, Candiens hate us so much that they are envious... I love it.
Tiger, tiger, burning bright,
In the forest of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
well yes, the prices in the big stores up here are around 330 dollars if u add tax thats about 350, and if u go to individual computer shops, there prices are around that area,

Goto www.atic.ca, Geforce3 Ti200's range from $225-$260 Canadian. $350 seems quite outrageous.
Creative G3 Ti200: 280€
Great I'm off to Portugal to do my shopping, by the time I get there the € will have devalued some more.
yeah, i know we americans are lucky
I spend loads of time out in the USA.. Well.. Florida anyway. I always go on the trail of cheap computer components but it seems to me that they're about the same price as back in the lousy old UK. At least your alcohol and tobacco are dead cheap.. and your cars, and houses, and food... wish I could get a visa..
here in texas the minimum wage is 5.15...fun fun! lol y/r anddepending where you shop here there are places you can find geforce3's for 75 and sometimes less.
Yeah, it's $5.15/hr in the US for minimum wage. Things might be cheaper here. It all depends as far as government taxes go and the like. For instance, the Swiss Tax is outrageous, but you have complete free medical coverage and many others. Someone with more knowledge of the Swiss system that can help me out here as far as what else is offered?
I'm not saying I want more taxes(US), believe me I don't. I'm just saying that you have to look at more than just, oh wow it's cheaper over here in this country. You have to look at the broader view as far as the buying power of the individual within that economic system.
