Hi

I live in New Zealand and am going on a holiday to the US in July.

While I'm in the US, I'm gonna buy most of the parts for my new PC since the prices here in NZ are insanely high.

The problem is, I'm not sure how I'm gonna buy the parts. Should I buy from Newegg? Go to a physical store? (If so, please recommend a store).

I'll be in Seattle for a week and LA for about 3 days. I'll be living in a relative's house in Seattle and a hotel in LA.

Thanks in advance.

Compare some prices from pricespy.co.nz with prices on Newegg.com
Making an adjustment for currency value

Remember you will pay freight [ or excess baggage charges]

and because the value will exceed $400 NZ you will also have to pay 15% GST on entry

Microcenter has great deals, there are two in California in Silicone Valley/Santa Clara, and Orange County/Tustin. The i5 2500k is $40 usd cheaper than newegg and you don't have to pay for shipping. So prices at microcenter are great.

If I bought my parts from Amazon, would I have to pay GST?
