Can be higher or lower. If you bargain with local shop owner telling them that online prices are these, local owner may reduce the price to make it more attractive.

may I know where from you got the price of VS450 - It's selling at Rs. 2200 - 2400 on many online and offline shops. So do your price research more precisely.

If you can get it from a store, nothing like it. I've been getting complaints that some units are damaged, are of older manufacturing date, the packaging is tampered. I am not generalizing all online stores are the same, but if you can buy from a store its much better. If a product is sold at a much lesser rate than others irrespective of its location, then one should naturally suspect.

At the end of the day, most of those online sellers are local dealers somewhere. Some are good. Some are bad.

Buy locally as you will get very good prices than online prices. Ask which GTX960 is cheaper and buy it.OK.

I'd say online prices have gone down drastically over the years so much so that you can get the popular products for a much lesser price than shops.

I got the GTX 750ti for Rs 10164 5 months back, the lowest quote i could get across many shops in Chandni Chowk, Kolkata was 11500 ( And I do know how to get the best price in Chandni, some shops literally kick me out when they see me coming, i go around asking prices so much and never buying ).

The Dell S2240L was available for Rs 7000 on Amazon 3 months ago. You won't get it anywhere below 8500 in any shop.

I'm not saying to go the online way right away, ask around in shops, see where you're getting the better deal, buy separate items from separate shops/online if required, you can save a lot of money this way, just putting a little effort.
