What is the best place to buy high-end gaming computers?

Postby NickRazzleflamm » Tue, 18 Jan 2011 11:56 am

Hi, i'm hoping to buy a high end gaming computer by the end of this month. I'm currently in Sri Lanka and the components looking for, are very expensive here. So i'm hoping to get the machine from Singapore and import it to Sri Lanka with the help of my uncle.

But the problem is that my uncle doesn't know anything about computers. He told me to get him a name of a good computer shop where he can get everything i need.

So my question is, what is the best place to get computer parts in Singapore?

Here's what i need
i7 950 cpu
evga x58 sli 3 mobo
gskill 1600mhz ddr3 tri-c ram
evga gtx570 graphics card <-- THIS IS VERY NEW
samsung 7200rpm sata hdd
inwin commander 750w psu
cooler master hyper 212 plus cpu cooler

Thanks for helping me out.

I would head to Funan IT Mall or SIM LIM Towers.
Preferably Funan, for a better customer experience.

Though not sure if all the specs that you mentioned would be available.
Do a search of Funan IT mall singapore, get some store listings, Call them and organise your stuff before asking your uncle to do the enquiry himself.

To be honest, its going to be easier on your Uncle to get it all from one place. For components I have previously used both Bell and Fuwell both in Sim Lim and not your usual fly-by-night dealers. I used CYbermid too, but their range sometimes isnt as good.

Address and contact numbers on their price lists, which can be downloaded from here:
http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/priceLists

You will have to join HardwareZone first though...a few other price lists there too to browse.

Oh...and check the RMA deal, your local dealers might not honour warranty outside of region of sale.
