Those 860 Evo prices are strange since e.g. the 250GB on Takealot: https://www.takealot.com/samsung-860-evo-series-2-5-250gb-ssd/PLID48757883 R900.
And if you check here: https://www.wootware.co.za/samsung-mz-n6e2t0bw-860-evo-2tb-sata-6gb-s-m-2-solid-state-drive.html the 2TB m.2 860 Evo is End of Life.

Also on Newegg, the 970 Evo Plus 500GB M.2 sells for R2606: https://www.newegg.com/global/za-en/samsung-970-evo-plus-500gb/p/N82E16820147742

This is within 20 minutes of your post, so where are you getting these prices from @Jamie McKane? I expect shoddy journalism from you, but not actually getting pricing wrong considering that you are so used to throwing guzzle.com specials at us.

Perhaps she added shipping?

Now do an Amazon USA vs Takealot vs Newegg

Intel Core i9-9900K from amazon including shipping and duties is roughly R8500 already ^.^

Look, you will still have to pay VAT and duties as well as a clearance fee. Looks like VAT is added on the site. Order it and tell us how accurate the numbers are when landed.
I don't have that much spare cash lol, you go and test it.
I did leave feedback that if they are doing SA they must advertise the price Inc. of VAT. Quite annoying how they aren't.

They wont charge you VAT over there - that's why you pay VAT when it hits customs on this side ( unless you meant something else ) Nevermind - I see they do show vat - but i then think they mean what the VAT will be when it hits our shore, coz i cannot see them double charging you VAT
