Where does everyone buy their shit from?
« on: December 28, 2012, 06:32:08 PM »
I'm looking at chucking another 6GB of RAM into my system to help help my Tri-Channel setup. I've found a few online sites that
are selling the exact type I am after for a pretty decent price but the postage is fucked. Most of these places are in Sydney and they are requesting $16-$20 to where I live which is only about 3 hours away. Can you guys recommend me any sites that aren't complete bullshit?

Ive been using umart purely because I live about 10 minutes from Milton :P
That or pccasegear just depends on who has what on sale.

http://www.shopbot.com.au/

bear in mind that the top results will recover some of their margin in shipping, also many companies boycott because search engines are too efficient for consumers ;)

That said, fucking useful.

wat

no

its 3 slots high, not 3 pci-e slots

pci-e slots are only 2-3 slots apart on the mobo so if you want 2 you might need to really shop around to find a mobo that spaces them out enough

Yeah becareful with that, the occasional mobo even has pci-e ports side by side, if you have a big enough case get an oversize mobo with like 3 slots  between, +extra space for cooling if you sli/crossfire.


Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.
