Shipping issue for i5-750 PC components

Dear Friends,

I am planning to place an order in a week or so for the following components from the popular US portals:

1) Intel Core i5-750 Processor
2) Gigabyte P55A-UD4P or Gigabyte P55A-UD6 Motherboard (yet to decide, Foxconn sockets spoiled my plans!)
3) DDR3-1333 MHz Dual Channel - 4 GB RAM (yet to decide the make to best fit the low voltage)
4) SAPPHIRE 100283L Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 (most probably this one, didn't freeze yet)
5) Thermalright 120 Cooler (don't know which 120 model to choose - MUX or Ultra or Extreme!)
6) PSU: Corsair (don't know which make to choose & what wattage: 650 or 750 or some even said 1000W!)
7) Windows 7 Professional x64 System Builder OEM (but am not a re-seller)
*8) 24" LCD Monitor (don't know which make to choose, some say Samsung & Dell. And weight is a cost factor)

*As of today, I've decided to import those components but I might add one or two more like LCD Monitor, PC Case etc (awaiting for the local prices to compare the costs post shipping and customs...).

Quantity: First import 1 set and test thoroughly (OC upto 4 GB but for testing only), after 1-2 weeks order 20 more sets)

Here is the actual problem, I got these replies from the top two portals:

=> Newegg.com: we do not currently ship internationally, deliver to locations within the United States and to Puerto Rico.
=> TigerDirect.com: We apologize for the inconvenience. Due to some customs and vendor restrictions, we do not ship products to your country.

After reading those messages I end up with a kind of sour taste :( Please suggest apart from ebay.com who else ship to international locations with best prices. Also, please give your opinion on the components above.

Your help would be invaluable and thank you very much.

    I don't know on the shipping, but a couple of comments on the build. I do know that a lot of the international shipping isn't due to the companies, but rather to import/export laws of the US and elsewhere.

    RAM: I usually recommend the G.Skill Ripjaws 1333 mhz with CL 7 (about $100 US). These are fast, reliable sticks, and fairly cheaply priced.

    PSU: Whoever told you the 1000W was on crack. You will never need a 1000W unit, unless running 2 or 3 fully build motherboards (separate RAM, HDD, CPU and GPUs). You should get 550W if not including the option to Crossfire later, or 650W if you are including this option.
  3. IMO i would get this ram, its almost brand new, just a few weeks old i believe. Its the new Eco friendly series, same quality and specs as other equal ram but much lower voltage.

    RAM: (G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL7D-4GBECO) $97.99

    Capacity 4GB (2 x 2GB)
    Speed DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
    Cas Latency 7
    Timing 7-7-7-21-2N
    Voltage 1.35V
    Multi-channel Kit Dual Channel Kit
    Heat Spreader Yes


    Fits exactly what ya want, now to just find it outside Newegg.

  5. I would get ddr3 1600 ram if you plan on overclocking:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277

    Instead of the thermalright ultra I would get the Hyper 212+. It is half the price for basically the same performance. (Although if you do get the ultra..make sure it's rev C)

    Hyper 212+ $30:

  6. Great list tecmo34, should be made sticky!

    Yes :) Amazon International Shipping says the following items can be shipped to almost all destinations outside the U.S.:

    * books
    * DVDs
    * music
    * VHS videos

    Additionally, some consumer electronics, health and personal care, home and garden, jewelry, pet supplies, shoes, software, sporting goods, tools, video games, and watches can be shipped. Now am going to write to them in detail and wait for their response.

    Later I could think about $ difference: Newegg vs TigerDirect vs Amazon vs others. Is my approach correct?

    Thanks,

    Almost decided on Sapphire 100283L Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5, PCs would NOT be Over clocked but would surely rely on Intel's Turbo Boost (3.2 GHz). Crossfire later means using this type of card? If yes, should I safely settle for a Corsair 750W PSU?

    Thanks,

  9. Yes. And Yes.
