i did look there but its getting confusing.also ive heard ppl there bargain quite a bit, so was wondering was the price at that site the best one?!!?
thot electric items were cheaper than the price quoted there. so thot ppl who reside there wud know best. let me know if possible.

ps: after comparing it to indian prices, its not much of a difference. wasnt eletric items cheaper?! like in singapore i heard there's a bldg for cheap computer items.the price of those wud be diff than that on the site. i assume.

am i right?!

Those prices ARE from the "bldg for cheap computer items". Bargaining will only get you a small discount, and only if you buy a lot of parts from the same store. If you look and act like a tourist, you will not get a discount easily.
