US online stores that ship overseas

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Steve Lawrence, Nov 30, 2003.

  1. I live in New Zealand and am looking at buying a new video card. For a
    Geforce 5600, for example, I would have to pay around about US$190 here, but
    notice that you can pick one up for just a little over US$100 in the US
    itself. Does anyone know of any good, reliable, on-line stores with
    reasonable prices that ship internationally? Nearly all the ones I have been
    to ship to the US and Canada only??

    Try www.outpost.com , used them a few years back for item ordered for
    delivery in UK.

    Beware you will be liable for customs and import duties not to mention
    warranty problems.

    You'll lose your garantue ( no oversees garantuee ) and you'll have to
    pay shipping and. if the customs find out.. taxes!

    So you MIGHT have a cheaper card, but you MIGHT be more expensive out!

    Don't be put off importing, here in the UK the retailers have you by the
    balls. My son saved GB£100 by importing a radio-controlled monster truck.
    That is after paying shipping, import duty (4%), VAT (17.5%)
    Do some research, the chances of a video card being faulty are slim, the
    occupants of this house have bought many and the only reason for replacement
    is upgrading.
