Bend over if you let them pack it and ship it for you. I'd say you'll spend every bit of 100 bucks if you go that route.

Edit: I bought a set of fender flares for my Jeep restoration from someone in Virginia. I live next door in NC, about 3.5hrs away.
The flares are big, but not heavy, nowwhere near as heavy as a PC, much less a monitor.

She estimated 30 bucks shipping....her idiot fiancee' (she claims) took them to the UPS store and let them ship it for him.....cost about 55 bucks.

I just had my rig sent down from TX, and it's a big aluminum case and a 19" LCD. I gave my friend who shipped it $150, so she could keep the change for doing me the favor. She said she maid $70 something off the deal, so my guess is about $80. That included my printer to boot. Oh and it was Amarillo, TX to St. Petersburg, FL.

If you don't already have the shipping supplies then it's probably going to be over $50, in the realm, likely between $75-100. If you do already have it, I would guess $35-50 if you go Ground (FedEx, UPS). Been a while since I shipped anything that big, and with the higher fuel surcharges, it's probably higher than I'm guessing.
