I converted it to USD and it was like 15 bucks I don't know if that is right though, what is considered a lot over there for a pc part? I imagine a brick and motor store would charge 30 bucks for that part.

Well, PC parts dont technically cost a lot, but the amount of money that you get from work is lower, and prices for stuff like food are lower. But prices for technology are based off the US dollar, so all technology looks really expencive.
