Man I'm good! Does that mean I win a free EVGA Titan HC biggrin.gif? No? Dang okay frown.gif.

Seriously though, if anyone knows any place giving one away, I want in biggrin.gif. Would look sick in my mini-Phantom build. Plus with the bottom rad in place, I can't fit a second card and there's no space for a dual GPU card. So a Titan would be the best option tongue.gif.

With all seriousness how does EVGA expect me to buy one of these? There is one store in the whole of Australia (pccasegear) that stocks EVGA GTX Titans, they only stock one of the five models you have available (the superclocked version), they are overpriced and they also have not been in stock since launch/can not be ordered.

Since I can't buy direct from EVGA.com because you refuse to post to Australia, how am I supposed to get one? I email EVGA for my region and they don't respond.

Acquiring an EVGA GTX Titan here has been close to impossible. I want some but can't get them.

Always seems to hike the price up a lot to do it, takes weeks and you have to pay a lot of tax to import things here. I've done it before with parts that make sense but I'd rather just buy GPUs locally and have a warranty.

Acquiring an EVGA GTX Titan here has been close to impossible. I want some but can't get them.

It is very difficult to get one, though to be honest PCCG have the most fair price basically out of all retailers in Australia (for the EVGA SC at least). Some charge pretty badly of prices up to $1500... PCCG can't help their prices unless they sell at a loss to themselves due to their distributors already charging over $1000 for the cards in Australia. Importing is difficult at best since you'll be hit with customs fees and GST if it's a purchase over $1000 (that'd apply to EVGA shipments from the US if they even did ship here, adding on another ~$200 to final price which has to be paid before customs release it).

Your best bet is to grab some second hand cards and import them, making sure to state it's a used item with a customs value below $1000 since I'm sure shipping ends up in the final amount of what customs evaluations, so headroom is needed. Or if you're lucky, grab a standard EVGA card from Amazon when they're in stock with Amazon themselves and hope the exchange rate is going in your favour, you'll get it for under $1000 and shipping globally from them insanely cheap, $8 or so though obviously not speedy. The reason for the needing exchange rate in your favour of course is due to hitting over $1000 again if it isn't. $999 total and it won't matter but $1000 and over and they'll really crack down hard.

I personally got my two Titans barely used and second hand from the market on this very site. I then had the seller post them to a US based shipping forwarder to get the most reasonably priced shipping, that's additionally very speedy. First card total was $1070 with all costs, $1050 if I were unkind and unhelpful tongue.gif Second should be arriving between late this week to very early next week.

It seems like these are basically the only two realistic options to do if you're not going to buy local. EVGA warranty policy is a beauty, so no need for second hand warranty worries or international buying worries. The product is covered no matter where it originated, no matter if it's resold from someone etc.

Yeah, that must suck, if they hike prices i wouldn't want to use them; the service I use, just acts as p.o box, already have 2 HC titans on preorder in amazon, when they get here, it will only cost me 35$ in shipping =/

That's the problem though. No freight forwarder I've found is willing to declare it as a gift and insure it for less than $1000. Not making it worth it because it ends up around the $1200-1250 range and GTX Titans just aren't worth that much. Even if you could get one in second hand for under $1000 posted you're limited to one a month.

PCCG make a lot of profit on their products. They tell everyone that they make marginal amounts on sales because of the distributors but it's rubbish. I was told they made $6 profit on every MSI R7970 Lighting sold by the manager himself. Naturally I laughed at him and low and behold 2 weeks later the cards had dropped $60 in price. I guarantee you they weren't selling them for a $54 loss. The distributor hadn't changed the prices because I know the guys at centrecom and they confirmed it.

The EVGA GTX Titan they have listed is the cheapest price in Australia by a lot but regardless if its not in stock, it's not much help to people like us that want them.

I used Shipito as my forwarder, I fill in the customs form for them (including price) myself for each shipment and I declared the card as merchandise (just checked, it can be selected as a gift also by you). Perhaps going an unnecessary sneaky step, payments were done to the seller in two segments. $900 + remainder seperately. Requested the $900 reciept be included with the shipment. All worked out fantastic for me. And honestly, thumbs up to PCCG if they end up making a lot of profit in the end with their cheaply priced products compared to other retailers and in all my experiences, top notch service thumb.gif

Curious though, how do you know PCCG was using the same distrubutor as CentreCom or even if they were, that different agreements weren't in place for PCCG and them?

Aaaand we still get taxed + customs fees for goods amounting to over $1000, even via holiday. Smuggling time perhaps! biggrin.gif
