I went to the Al Ain computer center yesterday, as I am going to build a gaming Rig next week. Here are the prices for a couple of items I asked for.
1) Core i5 2500K - Varies from 825 to 875 AED
Core i5 2400 - Around 700 AED
Phenom 2 X6 1055 - 700 AED (Interestingly, they refused to tell me the price for the x4 965 or 955 BE)
2) P67 B3 motherboards from Gigabyte, Asus - 700 to 750 AED
H67 motherboard from Gigabyte - 620 AED
890GX Motherboard usb 3 - 700 AED
3) Corsair 850 TX - 700 AED
CM 850 Silent Pro - 650 AED
4) 1 TB HDD WD Black - 325 AED
5) 4 GB Kingston DDR 3 1333 Mhz - 185 to 215 AED
6) CM 690 Nvidia - 400 AED
HAF 912 - 350 AED
Thermaltake V9 - 600 AED
6) Samsung 23" monitor - 625 to 650 AED (Carrefour has an offer for 550 AED)
Acer 24" - 600 AED
7) CoolerMaster V8 Cooler - 220 AED
CM V6GT - 280 AED
8) Keyboard Mouse Combo Logitech - 60 AED
RAdeon 6950 1 GB - 1000 to 1100 AED
Radeon 6950 2 GB - 1100 to 1300 AEd
Radeon 6970 - 1425 to 1700 AED
Geforce 560 1 GB - 1000 AED
560 2GB Palit - 1450 AED (morons. The 6970 is at the same price lol)
geforce 570 - 1500 to 1700 AED
Geforce 480 - 1800 AED
Geforce 580 - 2050 to 2300 (Direct Cu2)
I was disappointed with the lack of variety for GPUs. Almost all have only Sapphire, Zotac and Palit. Couldn't find Powercolor, MSI, Asus cards anywhere.
I don't know if it was random, but Golden systems, the official Gigabyte GPU vendor here, was very unfriendly. The shopkeeper showed no interest in telling me the hardware prices, didn't tell me about any GPUs available and asked me to come back next week.
all other shops were very friendly and ready to give the prices.
So that's that. I would like to request anyone on Tbreak forums, who ventures to Al Ain to buy new products, to keep us posted and updated here. The lack of activity here is depressing

RAM: Kingston HyperX 8GB (1600MHz) (190 AED)
Case: Get any good case you like. Thermaltake, Coolermaster, and Corsair are the best (Less than 300 AED)
HDD: Segatte 1TB (300 AED)
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77 (600-700 AED)
Graphics Card: GTX 660 Ti (1300-1500 AED)
Power Supply: XFX 650W PRO (350 AED)
Optical Drive: LG x24 (65 AED)
Total: 3895-4200 AED
All the prices are from the shops in Al-Ain Centre. You can go there and collect your parts. They'll make discount for each part, then for the whole total. So it'll be less than 3895-4200 AED

I was getting 2-2.5MB and had restricted my downloads to night time. It's alright from a browsing and gaming point of view though. I didn't go for 3G connection coz it ends up super expensive if you are downloading.

The i5 2400 and 2500 are easily available in most places. The 2500K is slightly more difficult to find. The 2600K is not to be found anywhere.
the 2400 is priced around 700 AED, the 2500K is available at 825 to 875 AED.
Most vendors will try to sell you an i7 based system, so beware. Remind them that for gaming atleast, the 2500K>>i7 975.

Also fix your goddamn englishes!, "it has become too casual market" made me lol hard.
While having a woody.
Which was also hard.
"the BODY is the controller !" was a funny moment.
Also there seems to be someone who's very misinformed about everything that's going on.
Guy keeps going "What?"
Nice episode though.
I'm still hard.

From now on, keep your rants, chants and pretty pink pants to yourself. No personal insults, religious battles or racist remarks will be tolerated. I don't care which country you come from and I don't care if you're all the colours of the rainbow, you will not resort to any of that.
Be careful what you wish for they say. No complaints about missing threads/posts/midgets will be tolerated. This is not a democracy. In this little forum ('of only 10 or so members' as quoted) I AM THE LAWL!
1. Thou shalt not insult another member regardless of their nationality or race.
2. Thou shalt not start or instigate any religious debate.
3. Thou shalt not post any form of pornographic material.
4. Thou shalt not post any pirated software (warez) or links to the same.
5. Thou shalt respect other members on the forum.
(I will add more if I can think of anything, the law is an ongoing process)
Failure to follow these simple rules will get you bitchslapped back to 16th century. Just give me the chance.
The lawl has spoken.
