    I've found an EMD domain (.com,.org,.net are free). It has very low competition (PR 0's and 0 Backlinks)

    The local monthly searches are ~1000
    The global monthly searches are ~22,000

    It's in the niche of Watersports (Boats and such) so each product would be $500+ meaning I could potentially make $5 per sale (Not sure how much affiliate sites give you, but I'm assuming it's like 1%?)

    Would this be worth the $4 for a .com domain?

    you really need to ask? yes, of course its worth it, even 1 sale and you're in profit.

    just make sure it's exact searches you were looking at rather than broad, as that's a common mistake and makes it look like the keyword is excellent when it's not.

    Like they said, if those are exact match searches go for it, specially with the .com emd available.

    Also, make sure that it's not a trademarked name. Check using the USPTO to be sure.
