Wanting to get a bigger picture of how many users are located in Autralia, and thier input on a online ordering system for computer parts at affordable prices!!!

i myself have found myself in frustrating positions where online stores over in the states wont ship over and other sites here are way to expensive, so i am currently sourcing suppliers over in china and looking at importing, and would love to benefit fellow pc lovers, so your thoughts would be greatly appreciated

I'm From AUS in NSW and i just orderd some hardware from TigerDirect.com Super Buys - Computer Parts, PC Components, Desktop Computers, Laptops, Notebooks and they ship out to AUS but you can only pay by wire transfer and the sweet thing is that its cheaper to buy from the states than buying From AUS

Dude there are heaps of cheap places in australia, dont import...

Mwave.com.au is not bad - i just ordered a monitor from there.

Otherwise if you live in sydney there is MSY (dirt cheap but poor service) and Umart, which delivers australia wide.

Seriously look at Umart

I dont know why you would try and import them, i mean, we live closer to the manufacturers than the states...

I'm Australian, I mostly just use eBay, but am probably gonna try out that U-mart place, looks pretty good. Tiger Direct looks like a bit of a pain :S
