"Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available $969.42"
I'm not sure where you are from but not every state and every county has the same taxes in the US. On top of that not every website charges tax.
A person in Delaware and a person in California could have ordered these same exact parts at the same exact time with free shipping from the same retailers and there would be a 10% price difference.
If this person is from a county where there is no sales tax then this price is not post tax, because it was never taxed.
If I ordered this it would be more than $969
Then it will show you the price for it. I don't understand how hard that is to understand?
This is almost definitely without tax. The processor is $239.99, which is the price on Newegg before tax. All the parts add up perfectly, so unless they collectedly added the tax to another component or something, this will cost more for those that it applies too. I live in Cali, so most of the tax will apply to me.
