well, since im new here, i need some help, im actully from Norway, and i am looking for a Online Hardware store that ships pacages to Sweden.

i was planing on building a new computer in nORWAY, BUT WE HAVE TO PAY 25% Extra on everything, and even more, due to our fucked opinion on the UN.. :p  , well, my plans are simple, we have an apartment at the border of sweden, on the swedihs side, and since sweden si in the UN, they dont tax eveything comming in, so, i am going to order my machine to sweden and then build it there, and smugle it over the border :twisted:

vel, i need to know a store who has the most hardware, and the cheapest, and ships to out trough europe, (Sweden)

the computer is gonna cost me no more than 2400 US dollars. that includes shipping, i need a low shipping price, max 200US dollar

Huh??? Norway is in the UN. They joined on the 27 Nov. 1945. And what does the UN have to do with taxes?

the only prob is that i need a site where i can register myself in sweden,

When I saw the word "HW Store", I thought you were looking for a website which sells term papers.
April 17, 2006 10:02:21 PM

actually i have a very similar problem. in switzerland everything is very expensive (even though taxes are rather low), most US sites dont ship internationally and i dont know any good ones in the EU
April 18, 2006 10:28:47 AM

yes, but i just need 1 store.. even if it is in the US, i will save upp to 500 dollars, by byiung it from US and shipping it over to sweden, thats alot of money to use on extra components..

Well if the price difference is substantial enough I would advise you to have a friend buy it from newegg in the US and ship it to you.

Another option is to buy it from a reputable yet inexpensive store in the EU and have it shipped to Sweden.

I hear they have some good stores in the UK but I'm not sure how much they charge to ship to Sweden.

I could newegg it for you and even assemble and test it, then ship ( UPS or Fedex ) it to you but I am not sure if the EU has any tariffs on imported computer parts from the US.

I would suggest a config like this:

By getting lightweight components you can limit the shipping costs.

the powersupply is needed to buy here in orway, due to the voltage differnce between USA an NOR, we use only 230V, while US uses 400V

btw, any suggestions to the config? another Ram, DVD (need SATA), or Motherboard? the rest i will leave as it is..



Virtually all PSUs made today are 120/240v capable and work worldwide.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowImage.asp?image=17-10...

The red switch in the picture changes from 120V to 240V.


You just need a power cord for Norway -- you should be able to buy one for $5 - $10 bucks or $4-8 Euros.
April 18, 2006 2:14:16 PM

well then i have updatet the config.

i thouht the US operated at 400V, not 120V. :p 

well, then problem solved.

Great :-D


Also I have to say that AMD CPUs are much better for gaming.

Please have a look at these benchmarks:

The AMD X2's, 1xx Opterons and FX series CPUs beat the D950 in many tests including Quake.
April 18, 2006 2:32:07 PM

oh jess, i know AMD is much better, but i chose intel, because i always wanted Intel, and its is the price difference, and how the clokc speed, my brain can`t just comprehend to understand the principals of overklokking an AMD, Intel is a piece of cake..

also it is the matter of fiending the right micro ATX mother bord for AMD, wich i havent found yet, but i would gladly go over to an AMD x2 4800+ or Opty 180, but, since the X2 5000+ is coming soon, and Intel has 65NM Cpu`s i chose them.

Opteron 1xx CPUs usually OC very well, it is easier than OC'ing an Intel.

There are Micro-ATX S939 boards but they are a little harder to find tho.

Here you go:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?Submit=EN...

These are MicroATX S939s with the 6100, 6150, nForce4 and ATI chipsets.

The nForce4 chipset is the best platform for AMD64.

my new config is

1 x ASPIRE X-QPACK-AL/420 Black/Silver Computer Case With Side Panel Window - Retail / 74.99$ 85$
1 x ASUS A8N-VM CSM Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail / 80.99$
1 x XFX GeForce 7900 GTX XXX (700MHz) 512MB PV-T71F-YDD9 Video Card - Retail / 589$
1 x AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 1GHz HT Socket 939 Processor - Retail / 811$
1 x OCZ Titanium 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail / 224,99$
2 x Western Digital Caviar SE16 320GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM / 130$ /Tot 260$

OH, and for those wondering, this config costs 3261$ seperate in Norway, at the cheapest store, that has all the components it costs about 3500$ + about 50-60$ in shipping.
