Cheapest/most reliable Canadian pc component site? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
Yo, Italian Stallion, i checked on www.ncix.com and i found that it was more expensive than www.canadacomputers.com. Is that correct?, or am i missing something?

E.g. A S939 3700+ =$ 295. Whereas a S939 3700+ from CC is $252... whats going on?

Why is one alot cheaper than the other?

thanks.

Actually funny you mention that, I acuallty just bought that exact cpu from NCIX about a month ago for 275$ they just recently increased the price of that cpu because of the demand. You might find that Canada Computers has some better prices but I don't know how reliable they are. I have placed 10 orders through NCIX and they ship fast, I've never had any problems with them and they have good customer service as well.

Thats what i thought. I like how NCIX have express delivery on some of the items, thats a real bonus.

Do you know how much it would cost for shipping for a new pc?
E.g.

CPU
RAM
Mobo
OS
Video Card
Case
HDD
DVD Burner
19" monitor
Keyboard/mouse combo
PSU
Headphones

I can give a list of the specs that im getting if you want.
BTW, i just noticed that you have the same motherboard that im going to buy, how is it?
I have heard that quite a few ASUS A8N-E mobo's have a problem with the nf4 chipset fan, have you had the same problem?

Thanks Italian Stallion.

I can't really tell you how much the shipping would be for all of that cause I don't know where your located, just create an account and put all that stuff in your shopping cart then it will tell you the total price before you purchase.

As for the ASUS A8N-E, so far so good. I'm using the newest nForce drivers and bios and I haven't had any problems. This board is a great overclocker for me. I havent had any issues with the little chipset fan, but it does run consistantly @ 5000rpm so it probably doesn't have a long life span.

I live in Vancouver Island, BC.
Just curious, Do i have to install the newest BIOS/Nforce drivers? If so, what is the easiest/ most secure way of flashing BIOS?

Thanks.

No you don't have to flash the bios, but if you do flash the bios you will need the newest nForce drivers

It is very easy to flash the bios with the program called ASUS Update that will come with your mobo CD
