    its sad but toms already have given a sound explanation for that.
    and i am sure if it would have been easier to ship internationally, they would already be doing it.

    ummm what exactly makes this an "enthusiast" PC, I mean free PC's are great but, where's all the neat toys we "enthusiasts" play with.... This would have been a great prize.... last year. (yeah I am a little bitter I can't enter...)

    I'd be more concerned with the fact that it's a Raidmax PSU, :lol:.
