Man the shop wala's are doing pure "Business" :/

rak ....the amd and intel cpu are really being sold on a very high price... i asked the main amd dealer about it and his answer was that due to "taxes" this happens.

ofcourse if you know somebody in the computer business or have a relative who works for these distributors then the price is the same as the international price.

Where did you get that price quote?

Alam Shah, all prices are from czone. Core 2 Quad Q8400 cost 16400, which is average price point for cheapest and most expansive INTEL CPU if see the price list.

jack who is main AMD dealer here?

Price difference between local market price and company price for AMD CPUs is 4750Rs/$58 on average, which is quite high considering tax/duty on these CPUs.

Considering above conclusion, it make no sense to buy low performing expansive AMD CPUs in Pakistan. I do not know why there is so much price difference between Intel and AMD CPU prices, perhaps there are different tax/duty slabs for Intel and AMD :)

In international market AMD CPUs offer good price/performance ratio, like Phenom II X3 720 BE which cost $145 and is quite competitive with Core 2 Duo E8400, which cost $163.
