In GBP? And MSRP as we all know is fairly meaningless.
Question. I know about VAT and so on, but when someone advertises for say 350 Euro in Europe, outside of shipping do you actually pay 350 Euro? Or do you pay 350 Euro + some other kind of tax?

I'm just asking because, like the 3600X for example MSRP $300. If you live in California in the USA, you may well wind up paying $330-$340 because sales tax there is high. In some other states, the total might be as little as $315 because sales tax is low. It's got me wondering what the real difference in tax is.

Varies by jurisdiction. Retailer's choice in some, baked-in by law in others. In some countries, there are exceptions to things that must/must not have taxes baked into their prices. In the UK, VAT is usually baked-in.
