    Hey guys, as I've mentioned a few times I've just moved to Paris from Perth Australia, sold my i7 beast and bought a laptop for my stay here.

    wellllll I'm already hankering for something better and I just landed a job where in about a month or two's time I should have 600-800 Euro's to build a budget-midrange gaming rig (no need for monitor, keyboard and mouse)

    I've always built all my rigs myself so I've already got a fairly good idea of what parts I'll want, but I have no idea where I can go to get parts, or anywhere to order online from that's decent.

    Please to all the french TPU'ers out there, or anyone else who knows of a close country that will ship to Paris, tell me where I can go to get good prices on my future build.

    if you are shopping in de check out mindfactory. i've bought a lot from them (yes i do buy hardware .. sometimes) and never had any issues. excellent RMA department too.

    geizhals is my favourite price comparison engine, too

    I used to often buy from Mindfactory but nowadays they rip off for international shipping. It used to be <15€ but now it's 30€. :[ Though, the difference is only 10€ between K&M and Mindfactory. ¦]

    And memoryc.com/ is nice for all things memory.

    How about swimming across the channel and get it through Play/ebuyer or drive across to Germany and steal W1zzard's warez?
