Where Do You Buy Your Computer Stuff?

Recommended Posts

Ebay and an Aussie company called Computer Alliance.


Looking for a US retailer that posts to AUS though, realized that the markup on video cards is crazy. ($800 for a 780 here)

I live in Switzerland, and go to Digitec.ch - great site, great deals and great costumer support!


If I don't find it there, I just go to amazon - often the delivery from amazon is cheaper than from the manufacturer...

I'm from Aus :)

I had never heard of Koolroom until this post, I have always bought my liquid cooling gear from Pc Case Gear or Gammods

You actually got me shopping at NCIX, Linus. Been shopping there for basically all of my computer needs for over 5 years now. Thanks for that!

I live in Israel and the shipping from online stores is at least 100$ so I buy from an Israeli store called Ivory, it's more expensive than NCIX, Amazon and every famous online computers shop but there isn't any other options for me :(

NCIX for most of my stuff. But one time I ordered a mouse from Newegg and they sent two!
