Bangkok users. need some help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
in september ill be heading off to Bangkok with my mum and dad and sister for a holiday. My dad said is a good place to buy things from. So what i want to do is buy some computer parts eg new gpu etc from somewhere whilst im there. trouble is i dont have the first clue where in bangkok to buy anything and where itl be cheapest/most reliable. so im asking Bangkok users. Can you make any suggestions on where i can buy some things from and do they have a site? this would be a massive help.

Thanks

computer parts are pretty expensive over there for decent things. even a pentium 3 system will still set you back around £120. so in short, its not worth it. the things would be covered under an asian warrenty as well which would be a problem for RMA. i very much doubt you will save money.

Pantip Plaza is your best bet to buy technology and computer related things in Bangkok. It is a 5 (or 6?) storey mall in Pratunam. It is opposite to another shopping centre City Complex where your mom and sister would probably like to visit while you and your dad browse computer goods.

As to what to buy, the main issue is warranty. So, perhaps it is good that you buy parts which rarely need warranty (eg fans, heatsinks).
There are counterfeits and for-local-only goods (eg DVD movies). Make sure you understand the Customs laws of Australia before buying these things.

Sometimes a premium is justified if that product is not available in your own country.

Say, one really wants a Powercolor HD6870 Eyefinity 6 or a single slot HD6850 or a passive HD6850. These are 'special' products that not every brand has and Powercolor cannot be found locally, only then I would consider.
