Where do you get your computer parts? I have a brother in the states, so would it be cheaper for me to order it to his house and then he ships it to me? Where do you get your coolers and fans and peltiers also?

Plus can anyone give me a list of parts that stricktly require australian voltage so that I dont stupidly purchase them from the US?

well i can get some parts cheap because i can get them tax free through my company but i havent bought pc parts in ages....actually i bought a Supermicro case a few weeks back but paid an arm and a leg for it


but yeah i either do that or scam it free from my dads company or sometimes get it from my aunty in the USA. I think i'm doing that with my geforce 2. dunno yet.

i don't think parts are like country specific apart from power supplies but you can switch them from 115 to 230 volts anyway so i don't think thats a problem because i know people who bought alot of pc parts when they were in the US on vacation.

Damn! Zippy beat me to it (re: Oatley).

Anyways, for non-peltier stuff, try places like:
www.eyo.com.au and www.cougar.com.au

I've had success with both of those.

I've also heard www.rtvcomputers.com.au are OK.

Thanks a bunch for the links, methinks I will get a few more things from Australia than I was thinking of getting. But memory still costs 5 arms and a torso in Australia.
