Eric, thank you for your note. Unfortunately this processor card is 
not a very common item so discount mail order houses are not an 
option. I have tried all the resellers listed by the manufacturer, 
and only half a handful stocks the card I need and they will not ship 
outside the US as that would put their dealership at risk. In fact 
this item is listed by the manufacturer as "buy while stocks last, 
will not be restocked"
