Yep,I agree with you..but the fact is I am not willing to throw a huge sum of money at local shops just because they provide warranty. for an example I got my corsair vengeance lpx 16gb 2666MHz Kit for just 83dollars. same bloody thing is 22000 in Redline..how do you justify that for a profit? just because warranty? I do not think so..

I'm sure there are myriad costs that go into getting stuff down , especially in commercial quantities. Our market is still underdeveloped. I get stuff down from the US only because there are some specific items no one ever seems to stock here. If one shops around here though, from online to physical store there's a reasonable amount of choice.

Having said that I just ordered a 480GB SSD off Amazon for 21K when it costs 35k+ locally but that's just how it is. Other things are surprisingly well priced though - a 12 pack of Eneloop Pro batteries costs just over 10k with duty to bring down from the US but locally the same darn thing costs even less! The same went for my Canon 6D camera - 6 dollars cheaper than in the US! And I just bought a Dell Inspiron 13 7000 for 118K when I see some poor chap selling his on Ikman.lk for 140k from Singapore...there are some pretty decent deals in the local market.

I am an avid Gamer, So I am only interested in Gaming components. yeah you could be right when it comes to some products. I will share you my example so you will have a better understanding. I bought the following .

Intel Core i7 6700K+Asus ROG Maximus VIII Hero bundle - 580dollars
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x 8GB) DDR4 2666MHz -83dollars
Corsair RM750i 750W 80+ Gold -113dollars
Evga GTX 980 ti FTW edition-639 dollars.

Total-1415 dollars ( around 210000 Rupees)

If I bought the same from locally that would cost me around 275000Rs

So basically I saved a huge amount so that I can invest them in another component in future.
so what i am saying is when it comes to High end stuff the local market is just ridiculous..
seriously i never had problems about the warranty.I don't even care. cause I know those stuff will just do fine.unless of course lighting strikes me.. :P :P :P

No doubt that's a big saving...
I am a bit concerned about local warranty as I've had my share of components go kaput so I don't mind paying a reasonable amount extra for that - or for the shit that retailers have to go through to bring more niche products in. I guess that's just the way things are  with our economy.

The system only rule is bullshit because if i want to upgrade 1 part from redline ...oh wait i cant
Even if i want to buy the the parts but cant afford to buy it at once that means i will have to buy part by part...oh yeah we cant because of the system only rule
Give us the freedom to choose
We are after all a free country

I am against the systems only rule as well. Currently all the processors, certain RAMs, certain hard drives and even some motherboards are not sold separately. I remember building my first major machine. I bought everything separately as I didn't have money to buy everything at once.

The rule disrespects the budget customer. Not everyone wants to buy a whole system.

I respect Redline for what they bring to the gaming community, but with time there have been occasions where they have started to play by their own rules which is not cool.

thanks for pointing that out!!
totally missed that one  ;D ;D
anyway from what I've seen RL seem to lose customers who are going for full systems with this as well.
I mean if you don't want my money for one item, why would I come to you for an entire system?
the limited availability of high priced items maybe a justifiable reason for system only rule, but I don't think you can argue to that fact when you mark a 1tb wd blue hdd as "system only"
at the end of they day it's redlines business and ultimately they have the right to how they run their shop. But don't expect everyone to flock to your store when you show no regard towards yourown customers

The only items you cant buy individually are a limited number of motherboards and processors. Unless you plan to buy one and sit on it until you plan to buy the other, there's no restriction whatsoever on what you just said.

Please outline a scenario where what you said above is not possible or is complicated. This is simply a failure of comprehension or hating for no reason.

What about ram and hard drives? Cosair ram and desktop hard drives are marked as "Systems only" as of this moment. They are the components people tend to upgrade as the needs arise, probably more frequently than mobos and processors. Since those are standalone upgrades to a machine already owned, I don't see the need to "sit on it".  ;D

Don't quote me on this.
Umm...
If you buy a 'system' from redline you can upgrade using those parts without any hassle. As far as I know. Never purchased a full system but I think I read it on their price list.

On this "SYSTEMS ONLY" thing...

Have any of you gone to RLT and were returned, being said 'we can't sell you the product because you are/did not buy a full system from us'...???

Got a Seagate Barracuda 1TB few days back. No questions asked, though it said "Systems Only" in their website...
