Hi Folks!

Here is the deal: I live in south america and hardware is kinda expensive here, just FYI an i7 920 costs around 450USD. I've got the chance to bring some hardware from the US, specifically from New York City I would love some advice on where shall I buy the hardware (It cant be an online store) and how the taxes work over there! If someone know about the custom aswell I'd like some information if there is any trouble to bring it back here and so on! Looking forward to see your replies! -also , i know it does not belong here but would like some advice on a good 3x2 set of RAM DDR3-

Greetings and Thanks in advance,
Nicolás

look for a store called compusa.

if you have internet access (go to a library) go on their website. They have a store locator there.

Thanks a lot!
I see in Microcenter they sell i7s 930 for 199$ , that is without taxes? How do you guys pay the taxes of the things there?

Keep looking for hints! :D

Taxes in New York City are 8.875%. So a $200 purchase will cost about $217.75.

There is no duty (tax) on items when you leave the US. There is only a duty when you enter the US, which you only pay when you have more than ~$600-$800 in foreign purchased goods. You would have to find out what your minimum duty is on goods purchased in a foreign country in your country. From my experience, the customs officers don't really care when I go through customs.

Yeah here it can be kinda tricky... Its not so easy they make anything they can to charge you like 75% of the value of the item you bring :p ..

IMO, Microcenter has better prices, sales, deals than compusa.
Also in NY city is this store, J+R, they sell all electronics, should be a fun store to check out. http://www.jr.com/

See if you can buy a i7 off of ebay or amazon, and ask them if they ship to S America.

It depends on how much you'd want to pay for the i7 + shipping.

The problem is not the shipping.. is the customs that makes me pay a lot if I buy though there, i'll hide it :p  not paying like 75% of the ammount i paid for it
