    Hi, just to start, Amazon does ship to NZ, BUT if you need to send something back due to faulty parts (i.e. DOA), you foot the bill to send them back to the US. Check out computerlounge.co.nz and playtech.co.nz (I bought my parts off them). Also, check out pricespy.co.nz to see which NZ dealers are cheapest.

    Can't really say much else until you look a little more local. You are missing a CPU cooler. Get the hyper 212+ or wait for the evo to come out.

    Just some things to start with:
    INTEL CORE I5 2500K - NZD$319
    GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 - NZD$239
    ASUS ENGTX560 TI DCII - NZD$399
    G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 - NZD$119

    EVGA's lifetime warranty doesn't extend to NZ, so there isn't any point - get a custom cooler. The Gigabyte MB is recommended by Tom's Hardware, so spending any more money is wasting money.
  2. If you buy and import parts you will also have to pay 15% GST as they enter the country
    Almost always its cheaper to buy locally , and safer too if there is a return

    www.pricespy.co.nz

    only buy from the cheap places in Auckland if you can pick up . Otherwise they charge WAY too much for freight
  3. How much does Playtech charge to ship within Auckland?
  4. computerlounge/pricespy ship for FREE! (purchase over like $50 i think)
  5. Playtech has free shipping with purchase over $79 i think.
  6. You don't really need a mousepad that costs 25 dollars, lol. Just get a regular 5 dollar one, it won't increase your game or whatever they say it does.

  7. Yeah that's probably a good idea. Do you know of any particular ones which look good and have low friction?
