    Hi All,

    I've a business trip to The Netherlands soon and I would definitely like to buy some computer components while there, since these are hard to come by in Saudi Arabia. Does anyone know of a good computer store in or near by Amsterdam? Please note that I can't buy online.

    Ceintuurbaan has both mycom and computerland I think.

    Also you can visit streets like the Warmoesstraat, they have various computer stores there.

    Thanks, I'll try Ceintuurbaan, but I couldn't find Warmoesstraat on google maps, is this street in Amsterdam?

    It's right here on maps:
    Click

    Btw, you might have to pay import taxes back home. Check with customs if you can import stuff like this without problems :)

    Thanks, any where else? will I be able to find the following there?

    • Silverstone Fortress FT03 Case
    • Noctua NH-C14 CPU Cooler
    • Noctua NF-P12 Fan 120mm (3 no.’s)
    • Noctua NF-B9 Fan 92mm (2 no.’s)
    • Noctua NT-H1 Thermal Compound
    • Arctic Silver ArctiClean

    Thanks for the hint concerning import tax, but there us none in Saudi Arabia for personal effects. I also intend to claim the VAT back at Schiphol airport when I'm flying back home.

    Mycom.nl and Computerland.nl have none of the components you list in their webshop.

    You might get lucky in some of the local shops, but I honestly wouldn't know.

    I can't find the FT03 in Amsterdam in the Tweakers Pricewatch, which is the most extensive price comparison site I know for Dutch hardware shops.
    Same goes for everything else in your list.

    I hope you get lucky in local shops in Amsterdam.

    I was trying to avoid it but it seems a must; I will have to drive for an hour to Alternate.nl in Ridderkerk to get all these parts, since they have them in stock.

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Amsterdam is too expensive to set up a big shop ;)
    Alternate will be fine, just make sure they have everything stocked!

    Ah yes, alternate.nl. The endless confusion with .com.

    Happen to have some DDR3 for me Thrackan? Considering I'm only a few hundred meters from your home and such. Unless you moved yet again of course. :)

    Yes, but I'm only staying there for a three days, and I'm not sure that they'll be able to deliver the items in time. Also, occasionally some sites reject my credit card since they insist to have the card issued in the same country where the item is to be delivered, newegg for example.

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Dan, it might still be cost efficient for one of us in the states to buy and ship to you. Let me know if I can help.
