While possibly a loophole there is no sales tax in the US when ordering
online interstate.  So while it would be more at fry's/other local store, at
newegg the price they have is the price you pay.

 So $150 usd is about $190 aud...  add 10% for GST and you're only at $210.
Considering the boards are made in asia they aren't shipping them to the US
and then here, so shipping to get it in shoudl actually be less.

Compare this to apple who (typically) just takes:
-US price * currency * 1.10 + rounded to nearest $50 even.
