NCIX might make you "pay" shipping on the 6950 if you PM from online stores, probably an additional $10-20. That is what happened last time I tried to PM a Phenom 945 from Newegg. It was cheaper on Newegg but NCIX tacked on shipping to the pricetag which made it even more expensive...

you guys put too much faith in the price match feature. remember, theyre there to make a buck. if you take most of the profit away they wont give it to you.

like i said before, you see a deal you go for it. i thunk twice on a couple things this past set of deals and got it no more :)
